Editorial Policy


I didn't update this for a while... books I can think of include:

  • The Vinyl Cafe series by Stuart McLean - gentle, humorous books of short stories based on a Canadian Radio Series
  • To my shame... just about everything that Dan Brown has written. I know they're not good, but they are "page turners"
  • All the Rebus books by Ian Rankin
  • About half of the Sherlock Holmes books By Conan Doyle
  • Various Bill Bryson books


Off the top of my head (quite a lot missing):


  • Jeeves in the Spring - PelhamGrenvilleWodehouse
  • Dog - JohnHegley
  • Belphagor - NiccoloMachiavelli
  • TalesOfSuperNaturalTerror - GuyDeMaupassant (selected by ArnoldKellett)
  • TheSleeperAwakes - HerbertGeorgeWells
  • VeryGoodJeeves, HeavyWeather - PelhamGrenvilleWodehouse

Non Fiction

  • EverydayLifeInAncientMesopotamia
  • TheRedQueen - MattRidley
  • TheCodeBook
  • Letters from a Stoic - Seneca
  • The Consolations of Philosophy -- AlainDeBotton
  • Lots of copies of NewScientist
