For Gervase Phinn growing old is not about a leisurely walk to the pub for a game of dominoes or snoozing in his favourite armchair. As this sparkling collection of his very best humorous writing shows, he may be ‘out of the woods’ but he is certainly not ‘over the hill’. Looking back over more than sixty years of family life, teaching, inspecting schools, writing and public speaking, Gervase never fails to unearth humour, character, warmth and wisdom from the most diverse of experiences, whether they be growing up in Rotherham with the most un-Yorkshirelike of names or describing why loud mobile phone users get his goat. Brimming with nostalgia, gently mocking life’s absurdities, never shy of an opinion, this is Gervase Phinn at his wittiest, twinkly-eyed best.

Ambition is something most people have buried deep inside them. The problem is, most people are programmed to fail. Charlene, driven by a passion for supremacy, is unlike most people in that she will do whatever is necessary to make her desires real. What Charlene does not realise is that running deep within her bloodline is a connection to a game-changing predestined event. She will have to delve into black magic in order to rise to the position she so desperately craves. Touch Not the Horse is a supernatural thriller by Anthony Gavali. The setting is the city of London’s financial heart and a horse sanctuary in East Sussex. In this complexly woven modern-day tale of success at all costs, readers are transported back through a dark history, where the fight for control of the world’s resources has been burning for centuries. Two bloodlines seek to hold the balance of power, with only one outcome. These bloodlines have travelled down through the gauntlet of time to manifest in the twenty-first century with one aim: to fight the ultimate battle of control. Charlene holds the torch ready for the darkness. It will take the power of one man and one horse to stand in her way. They are armed with only the belief that humanity must be freed from the hands of evil. It once again falls to the few to save humanity from the bonds of eternal slavery. The question, however, is this: Will this belief be strong enough to withstand the cyclone that is about to hit them? Follow the story of Dean and his horse, Girlie, as they find themselves caught in this unavoidable dilemma against Charlene and the Devil’s servant, the evil Spirit which dwells inside her.

All his life, Gabe Riley has heard about sightings of ghosts and swamp monsters at Blood Red Pond, but he knows the green, scaly creature that attacks Ray McPherson’s old Buick one night isn’t real. It’s just crazy Rosasharn, getting carried away with his leading role in the horror movie Gabe and his friend Bo are making for their Gifted and Talented project. But it’s not so easy to explain some of the other curious things that start happening in Gabe’s neighborhood. Why is his father more melancholy than usual? What secret is his younger brother, Ethan, hiding from him? Why are food and clothes disappearing from their home? And who or what is behind the strange lights in old Mr. Lindstrom’s supposedly empty farmhouse? Gabe is determined to find the answers to these questions. But Gabe discovers there are far deeper questions involved, and he will have to confront more than ghosts before he understands the significance of the mysterious events. With his trademark humor and flawless ear for the language and concerns of young adults, Daniel Hayes has created an unforgettable cast of characters in a story that is part comedy, part mystery, and part a thought-provoking exploration of friendship, family relationships, love, and death.
