by Jack Burbank

A bunch of kids playing in quicksand (!!!) discovering a body, a big bust going down, a shrewd man getting back at the court system, a clever bank robbery, a false charge of abduction and a man driving himself to his sentencing. All “lite” mysteries that should warm a winters night, or chill a summers morning. A series of stories by Jack Burbank as he cut his teeth into the field of writing in the early days. His last short story, “Ballard”, leads off the pack about a Sherlock Holmes type of mind with a very observant eye.

Fiddle Of The Sphinx – and other Quintessentially Quirky Tales: Comic gems with a hint of mischief

by Iain Pattison

A hilarious bundle of laugh-out-loud twist-ender stories packed with gags, groans and great fun characters.

If you love sit-coms, sketch shows and quick-fire humour, then these rib tickling tales by humorist Iain Pattison are guaranteed to have you in stitches. Ideal for reading on the train, over coffee or as a bedtime treat, each is a bite-sized chuckle bomb that’ll brighten even your greyest day.

In this Quintessentially Quirky collection of Iain’s best offbeat stories, encounter:
-A horror writer who extracts a fitting revenge on her unsympathetic publisher
-A mix-up with a giant statue that has the Dalai Lama hopping mad
-A kidnapped woman held hostage in a busy Heathrow departure lounge
-The Horsemen of The Apocalypse facing a scathing performance review
-Willy Wonka turning to desperate measures to rescue his chocolate factory from recession
Plus tinsel-loving Scrooge haunted by ghosts who want him to despise Christmas.

From the unconventional and teasing to the downright surreal, this compilation of madly mirthful satirical delights is packed with word play, wit and unexpectedly silly send-ups.

And an extra treat:

We were going to include a documentary on the making of Fiddle of the Sphinx, but luckily for everyone we relented. Instead, we’re delighted to feature a guest story by one of Iain’s favourite authors, Glynis Scrivens, who reveals what happens when a bored housewife’s tapestry of her town takes on a life of its own in Connie’s Project.

Tess of the D’Urbervilles

by Thomas Hardy

Hardy tells the story of Tess Durbeyfield, a beautiful young woman living with her impoverished family in Wessex, the southwestern English county immortalized by Hardy. After the family learns of their connection to the wealthy d’Urbervilles, they send Tess to claim a portion of their fortune. She meets and is seduced by the dissolute Alec d’Urberville and secretly bears a child, Sorrow, who dies in infancy. A very different man, Angel Clare, seems to offer Tess love and salvation, but he rejects her â?? on their wedding night â?? after learning of her past. Emotionally bereft, financially impoverished, and victimized by the self-righteous rigidity of English social morality, Tess escapes from her vise of passion through a horrible, desperate act.

Like the greatest characters in literature, Tess lives beyond the final pages of the book as a permanent citizen of the imagination. â??Irving Howe
What a commonplace genius he has; or a genius for the commonplace â?? I don’t know which. â??D. H. Lawrence
The greatest tragic writer among English novelists. â??Virginia Woolf
A singular beauty and charm. â??Henry James
