The Dumb Class: Boomer Junior High

by Mike Hatch

If Grease was a rather lighthearted view of the local hoody kids in the nineteen fifties-sixties era, The Dumb Class is a dark-humored, irreverent look at those bygone days. It is funny, poignant and a page-turner from start to finish. The Dumb Class tells about the desires, fears and joys of baby boomer teenagers finding their way along as they deal with the world of parents, siblings, neighbors, teachers, businessmen, doctors, and, of course, the police. They create their own milieu which is somewhat impervious to the society around them as they experiment, and in fact gain some expertise, with sex, drugs, and rock â??n roll years before the hit recording by Ian Dury popularized the phrase. Hoods, elites, nerds, weirdos and freaks make up the characters in this sardonic junior high school baby boomer tale set in 1960. We were just a bunch of greasers trying to have a good time and, well, sometimes, we did. An entertaining and fun read that will be much enjoyed by the boomer set and other kids, too.



Allies After All: A Yankee Years novella

by Dianne Ascroft

Allies After All is a standalone novella in The Yankee Years series, featuring Robbie Hetherington, a Local Defence Volunteer who also plays an important role in Acts of Sabotage, Book 2 in The Yankee Years series.

After the Allied troops arrived in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland during the Second World War, life in the quiet, rural county would never be the same again.

Although their nations are allies, from their first meeting American civilian contractor Art Miller and Local Defence Volunteer Robbie Hetherington loathe each other. But Northern Ireland is too small a place for such animosity, especially during the Second World War when the province abounds with religious and political tensions and conflicts that pose a threat to the war effort. What will it take to make the two men put aside their enmity and work together? 
 ***Attention: This story was previously published in the anthology Pearl Harbor and More: Stories of December 1941. If you own that anthology, do not buy this book.

The Yankee Years series: During the Second World War Northern Ireland hosted American, British and Canadian troops.

After the Allied troops arrived, life would never be the same again. The Yankee Years novels and Short Reads weave thrilling and romantic tales of the people and the era.



First-Alass bodyguard

by Marge Lee

Tori Vega, megastar and pop sensation, was standing on the stage, smiling at the throngs of her fans, enjoying the dying cheers from her final encore of the night. Like every other other show on this tour so far, this one had been a sellout. Part of it was her name, her raw talent and work ethic had won her legions of fans who adored her every move. However, Tori also knew there were some fans, newer ones, were at this show because of Trina. Her sister and manager had come up with yet another wining idea, and Tori was reaping the benefits from the older girls very tactical mind. “Thank you all, I love you, and I hope this is the concert scene they use in my next movie, The Ginger Fox Story.” She called out, like she did at all the consents on this, the American leg of the tour. Then she bowed and made her way back to the back stage area, smiling.

“Tori, you did great.” Andre said as he met her, guiding her to her dressing room. “I don’t know which I hate more, that Trina has you saying that last bit at the end of every concert, or that you mean it. I mean, it’s just gonna make you sad when they choose which set of footage to use, cause while one concert wins, every other loses. That is, unless they do a montage, which is probably Trina’s plan anyways.” He seemed exhausted by his own logic, finally realizing what the older girl had planned. “I get it now, how she sold the studio on backing this tour. I just thought it was her plan to make this tour a sellout while pushing the movie. I mean, it’s not like you needed it, not for the tour, and you probably won’t need it for the film. Cause your tori Vega, the realist girl in show business, with a huge loyal fan base who adores your every move. Still, every show sold out, sixty thousand plus people per venue, thats justâ?¦ Wow.” realizing he was confusing the exhausted girl, he shifted. Still, it’s a trip, watching you sing a couple of Ginger Fox’s classics. Every time”



War Crow

by Robert Faulkner

War Crow

So, you have heard the tales of King Arthur, his noble knights and the mighty magician Merlin. I knew them by their real names: Arthnog (my brother), Myddrin ap Idwal (mad old fool), Herewald, Gareth and the rest. There were no suits of shining armour. Their hair was matted and like the rest of Celti they smelt of stale sweat and mead. I see them now sitting around a fire in an old Chieftain’s hall. Christ, they had a high opinion of themselves, crusaders to the last man. Their battle cry â??Combrogi am Byth’ still resonates through my dreams. They fought for your people, for the land on which you stand, for your freedom.
I think back to those times often. Your ancestors could be quite an impressive bunch on their good days. The people of Britain were a varied lot: Arrogant Angles, men who kept their word even if it cost them their lives, Saxons who drank like fish but followed their comrades into hell without complaint or even comment. Oh, the Celti, what can I say about them? Well, they liked the sound of their own voices, free spirits, though some would simply call them stubborn bastards.
Your people were under attack from all sides: painted cruel Picti, slaving Irish and evil intent from a vengeful European Empire.
If that were to be the end of them, they were determined that they would end with one hell of a bang.
You may have heard of Arthur’s evil sister too. In my youth I was just a little naughty, perhaps I even indulged in the occasional orgy, even human sacrifice. But was I really that bad? I will let you decide. Listen to Herewald, he knew me better than anyone.
I must admit I like the title â??War Crow’, I think it suits me.

*****

In a desperate time the fate of the British people was handed to the ‘War Crow’.

*****

â??War Crow’ was written as a stand-alone story. However, many of characters appear in my earlier novels. I enjoyed writing about Myrddin, Arthnog and their friends far too much not to come back to them. The story follows on from the events in â??Sacrifice’. There is no necessity to have read â??Sacrifice’ or any of my other books to follow the story.
This is the first book I have written in the first person. I chose to access the perspective of Herewald, a warrior who fought at Arthnog’s side. If you have read my work already, then you may find that Herewald has a different perspective on characters than I did in those works. I reverted to the third person to tell tales of events in Prydain (Britain) that were taking place out of Herewald’s sight or knowledge.
