Goodreads Review - In All Probability

This collection of 30 short tales packs in so much its hard to know where to start. Each tale packs a lot in with plenty of implied and hinted backstories and endings that let you build on the teaser style writing that Morris uses. Because of this, these stories don't feel anywhere near as short as they are and before you know it you have been pulled into Morris' world in all its strange, scary, odd and unsettling glory. Morris's writing flows as well as ever and will appeal to all types of reader (unless you really don't like short...

An adventurous epic of a cycling marathon undertaken for the BBC Radio 5 Live programme 'Up All Night' alongside the Mississippi River.

In 2011 Thomas Cutbush remains a viable JTR suspect for at least three reasons, all uncovered when his Broadmoor Asylum file was released in November 2008.

A review of Aliens and Angels by Susan Curran, editor and creative writing tutor

A review of Aliens and Angels by Susan Curran, editor and creative writing tutor

These stories are warm and delightfully different approaches to the Christmas season, and each carries its own moral which children will easily be able to understand and appreciate.  There is also humour to be found here and each of the stories is illustrated with clear and charming drawings, which will definitely appeal to the reader.  Sue Hampton herself did the illustrations for ‘Aliens and Angels’, whilst the other two stories have drawings by children from two local First Schools. All three tales offer a perfect introduction to the true meaning of Christmas. In Aliens and Angels Robbie longs to be...
