Product description

About the Author

Bob was born in Edinburgh in December 1951 to Katherine Sutherland and Bob Cubitt (confusing at times). Bob senior was a professional soldier and the first few years of Bob's life was spent travelling around the world with his family. During his first 15 years he lived in Edinburgh, Austria, Malaya, Enfield, Leigh-on-Sea, Maldon (the Essex one), Harlow and Peckham. In 1968 Bob Joined the Royal Air Force as an apprentice electronics technician and spent the next 23 years travelling the world and enjoying all that service life had to offer. Places visited included Oman (a small island by the name of Masirah), Cyprus, Malta, Holland, Germany and various parts of the UK. During this time he met and married Bernadette and produced three children, Ewan, Tara and Sinead. He retired from the RAF in 1991. Following on from this Bob took up new employment with Royal Mail as part of their logistics team and stayed with them until 2009. After that he returned to his roots and took up a position with the Ministry of Defence at their Logistics facility at Bicester, Oxfordshire, before seeking early retirement in 2012. Bob has always been keen on writing and had tried his hand at various projects over the years, but the need to earn a crust had always interfered with his desire to be more creative. Now with time to spare Bob returned to writing with passion and produced three works of fiction in rapid succession. In truth these had been "works in progress" while he had still been in fulltime employment and just needed finishing off. Since publishing these three books on Amazon he has focused on a new book which he is hoping will one day see the light of day through more traditional publishing channels. Bob would love to hear from any literary agents that may be interested in signing him. In his spare time Bob enjoys playing golf, is a member of a pub skittles team and is trying, unsuccessfully, to learn to play the ukulele.

The Inconvenience store, what an intriguing concept, though with some of the disinterested staff at many stores, it seems that it’s the shoppers who are often the inconvenience.

This book is really two separate stories about two separate branches of the inconvenience store of the title… or to be more accurate, stories about the customers of two of its branches.

I guess you’d call it a fantasy novel, or maybe just a little bit spooky, but if those kinds of books aren’t normally your bag, don’t be put off… they aren’t my usual choice either, but I enjoyed it immensely nonetheless. I only gave it a try because I’m a fan of Bob Cubitt’s excellent ‘Warriors’ novels. I’m so glad I did.

The two tales may have the shadow of the supernatural hanging in the background, but it’s the way the characters from the real world handle the odd and sometimes menacing situations they find themselves in that makes the book so entertaining.

Although the book’s a mystery, I suppose, it isn’t a ‘who dunnit?’… it’s more a ‘how the hell do I get out of this?’ kind of book, but with the problems coming from ‘elsewhere’, and the strictly enforced rules of engagement being equally mysterious, it takes some lateral thinking on the part of the lead characters to solve them. I suspect there was a good deal of lateral thinking involved in the writing of it too.

An easy and entertaining read… well two reads really… I can readily recommend this book to anyone. Excellent.

I picked this book because I liked the idea and wanted to see if the author could make it work. He certainly did and I really enjoyed the story. I guess it's a first novel but it strikes me that the the writer is like a cross between a young Douglas Adams and a young Terry Pratchett.

I really enjoyed this book it has humour suspense with the supernatural thrown in once I started reading I had to find out what happened to the characters.
