A Firefighting Officer at one of the UK’s busiest fire stations, he had just commanded one of the largest live rescues of public from an apartments block fire for generations, and had the enduring love of his faithful Golden Retriever Barney.

An imagined early life of Jesus by the former dean of Salisbury Cathedral
Hugh Dickinson

9781911175834 The most profound mystery of Christian theism is the affirmation that the man Jesus of Nazareth was also Divine. Exactly what that means has been a matter of constant debate for two millennia. Christian theologians have made use of a great variety of physical analogies and metaphysical concepts in the attempt to give a rational account of this belief, but the metaphysical algebra no longer has much traction for most people and divinity is not within the reach of materialist rationality. In order to emphasise the presence of the exceptional in him it has been natural to give greater narrative weight to the Divinity of Jesus of Nazareth than to his humanity, which has effectively been shrouded in the glow of the Divine The purpose of this brief essay in imagination is the belief that unless we grasp the biological earthiness of Jesus we cannot fully understand his the Incarnation.

Exiles of Titan
The Martian Phase

9781911175728 Deira MacMahon is recruited from GCHQ to the European Bureau of Investigation because she possesses a rare genetic mutation which enables her to undergo a process known as PHotonic Algorithm-Sequestered Engram transmission (PHASEing) without physical or mental damage.

Sci-fi's not normally my cup of tea but a friend gave me this book as a present so I felt obliged to read it. I couldn't put it down! It's not just sci-fi it is also a mixture of mystery and thriller and I really enjoyed it. I thought Sol was a great character and I can't wait for the next in the series.

Judith Meredith

I was given this title by a family member, it is not the type of book I normally read. Decided to try it and I had trouble putting it down. A murder mystery on the planet's it is well written and an enjoyable easy read.

The plot moves along at a good pace with twists here and there. Read it in a couple days, had trouble putting it down.

After teaching small children, for many years, I retired and now have six grandchildren and two step-great grandchildren. My early retirement was spent backpacking around India. On returning to England I had many photos but no intention of writing a children’s story. However, Shanti, who we met at a bus station, kept emerging in my memories of the street children in India. Because of this, I became obsessed with the thought that I had to write a story about four of the children, who lived and smiled in the face of horrendous misfortune. The spirit of Garnesh is the first of a trilogy. The other two being A Dance for Rupa and Shanti. I wanted a child with a physical handicap to be central to a story. Shanti and his special friend Ashiq are real children and as such were a special inspiration to me.

Caroline Gilfillan - Poet and Creative Writing tutor at the Open University

This is an unusual, subtle book. I strongly recommend it.

Taking Time Out is a compelling novel that takes a long, hard look at a couple whose marriage is in crisis. Ruth and Tom have been married for twenty-five years, and have it all: good jobs, a comfortable lifestyle, and two healthy children almost fledged from the nest. But there are seismic shifts beneath the shiny surface. Sharp, clever Ruth misses the passion that was present in their early years. Tom, working for a government department on matters he can't discuss with Ruth, longs for a more creative element to his life and embarks on a novel. But just before they're due to return to the South Pacific island paradise where they spent their honeymoon, Ruth vanishes. What will Tom do without her acerbic presence? Suzanne, a friend and editor, is everything Ruth is not, and Tom is tempted by her warm, sensual presence. The reader knows that Ruth plans to return, but will her marriage to Tom survive? The book slowly unravels the answers to these and other questions, in fresh, vivid prose that draws the reader into the lives of these characters.
