Nick Corble has written across a broad spectrum of subjects, both fiction and non-fiction. An early focus of his work was the UK canal network, including 'Walking on Water', a description of a trip down the spine of the inland waterways system on the eve of the millennium. He followed this up with a biography of the canal pioneer James Brindley, as well as a number of waterways guides and a manual on how to live on the waterway system. Subsequent non-fiction has included walking books as well as social histories of the English fairground and the fairground attraction the Wall of Death.
In 2008 he turned his hand to fiction, publishing his first novel 'Golden Daze'. Well received, this book covers a year in the life of a young man home from university trying to work out what life, women and work are all about. His second novel. The Bond or Last Man Standing, was published in the Autumn of 2018 and tracks the fate of the Class of '77, as they carve a way in the world, unaware that one of their number is slowly killing them off. He has also published short stories for downloading onto the Kindle.
In the Spring of 2019, Nick will publish 'Diagonal Walking'. This describes a long distance walk through a line cut at 45 degrees through the very centre of England in order to discover just what makes England tick on the eve of Brexit.
