Benjamin Byrde, Traveller Extraordinaire: Round One – Berkshire to Istanbul

by Benjamin Byrde

In BENJAMIN BYRDE, Traveller Extraordinaire we follow the fate of a peculiar man who decides to relinquish his property, money and clothes, before setting off around the world, relying solely on the kindness and generosity of strangers. While several of his benefactors are indeed very strange, none are more eccentric than Mr Byrde himself, whose tales stretch even the most malleable imagination.

This first volume of unique travel memoirs transports us from leafy Berkshire to sultry Istanbul and gives us a blow-by-blow account of his varying fortunes along the way. Ever the optimist, Benjamin tackles every obstacle with his customary zeal, and the fifty-seven-year-old displays great powers of self-preservation, despite never having worked due to his singular way of seeing the world.

England, France, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and a bit of Turkey are the countries he visits, and Benjamin’s â??Byrde’s-eye view’ of Europe is like no other ever published in our time.

The Force is Middling in this One: And Other Ruminations from the Outskirts of the Empire

by Robert Kroese

What happens to a kid who isn’t quite good enough with the force to be a Jedi? What is it like to live in the worst city in the United States? If we aren’t allowed to test shampoo on monkeys, how will we ever know if our monkeys are clean?

The answers to these and other questions can be found in The Force is Middling in this One, a raucous romp through the mind of author, software developer and gopher exterminator Robert Kroese.

Laboriously compiled from three years of blog posts from, this collection covers topics as varied as the Incredible Hulk, perpetual motion machines and Satanism, and is sure to keep you running back to the bathroom for more. In fact, we’ve even included (on page 187*) a laminated card that reads: PLEASE EXCUSE MY FREQUENT TRIPS TO THE BATHROOM AS I HAVE A SEVERE BOWEL AND/OR URINARY TRACT CONDITION. This will allow you to read in peace without having to face embarrassing questions from your family and friends.
*If your card is missing, please check all of the other pages. If you still don’t find it, address the proprietor of the book shop sternly as follows: “SIR OR MADAM: I AM SHOCKED TO FIND THAT THIS BOOK CONTAINS NO CARD INDICATING THAT I HAVE A SEVERE BOWEL AND/OR URINARY TRACT CONDITION. WHAT, SIR OR MADAM, ARE YOU TRYING TO PULL, EXACTLY?” If you are still unable to get satisfaction, please purchase a copy of the author’s critically acclaimed, bestselling novel Mercury Falls. The card is on page 119. WE PROMISE.
