"Discovering Scarfolk is a hilarious novel filled with so-creepy-it’s funny illustrations and a relentlessly silly back story...The entire thing is a well-deserved and cunningly observed parody of modern Britain, reminiscent of Jonathan Swift at times...The discomfort simply makes the gags funnier and the result is a book that is genuinely laugh out loud funny but also makes you wonder what is wrong with you. The laughter will stay with you for some time, as will the commentary."
"The parodies are so accurate you'll never look at the real thing in the same way again....A 'Must Read'."
-SciFi Now Magazine
- SFX Magazine
"The clever perfection of the parody images, combined with the Pythonesque word play and riffs on the stranger aspects of British culture, are a masterpiece in absurdist horror."
-The Daily Grail
From the Back Cover
Welcome to Scarfolk...
Imagine you and your family are held captive in a town that is forever locked in the 1970s.
If you cannot imagine it, just think what it would be like.*

Boy was I surprised when I had finished this brilliant book.
I am not going to attempt to describe the story as I believe to do so would ruin the pleasure for other people but suffice to say that for someone born in the 1960's this brought back many happy memories of the 1970's due to its use of old ephemera from that period.
This book is one of the funniest books that I have read in a long while unfortunately it was so good that I had to keep reading and finished it within about 10 hours. If this author should write other books (and I think on the basis of this one he will) I for one will certainly be buying them.
Worth every penny, buy it now!
