‘Living in the past. It’s always said pejoratively, as if the past is necessarily inferior to the future, or at any rate less important; nobody’s ever condemned for looking... More > forward, only back. But the truth is that we live in the past, whether we like it or not. That’s where our life takes shape. Somewhere ahead, however near or far, is the end. But behind, shrouded in clouds of forgetting, lies the beginning’. This book about Scarborough IS unashamedly about looking back from the first mention of Scarborough in 8000 BC to the present day. It is not a formal history; rather a miscellany of interesting facts culled from many sources stretching back over the years.< Less

In 2009 after publication of my last book - National Service, Elvis & Me! – I planned to write another book. But fate intervened and after self-publishing my previous books demand grew from... More > others who wanted help to get their own books into print. Whilst we were busy publishing books for others, I appealed for anecdotes and stories to include in Why Should England Tremble. Over 60 people generously submitted contributions, but it was only in March 2012, on a tranquil island, near Luxor in Egypt, that I was able to start shuffling the entries and putting the book together. Why Should England Tremble? is the result - a Miscellany of Anecdotes, Facts, Humour & Memories which have come from many individuals and sources. I do hope you enjoy reading this book which I feel it is the sort of light hearted book you can pick up and laugh at and put down in between reading the more serious stuff.< Less

First, a word of warning! This book is not about the BBC TV show Mastermind, or the much revered late Magnus Magnusson. This book starts with the Fowler family tree in 1541 and then moves swiftly on....

As well as being a memoir it also comprises part travelogue and part social history. It also provides a miscellany of other happenings, doings and yet more anecdotes, which occurred throughout my lifetime.< Less

National Service, Elvis and Me! is a serious but light-hearted look at the 13 years of peacetime National Service which led to the call-up of around 2.3 million men in their late teenage years. Most... More > men served for 2 years between 1949 and 1961. Every alternate Thursday for 13 years 6,000 men were called-up and allocated to either the Army, the RAF or the Royal Navy.

Edgar Allan Poe is considered by many to be the premier writer of the macabre, both in story and in poetry. Yet it is my pleasure to introduce to you the man who continues where Poe left off. David... More > Lewis Paget is an accomplished Australian Poet. His narrative poems are of such high quality both in rhyme and meter that there are few his equal. Over the past forty years or more, David Lewis Paget has honed his skill as a Narrative Poet to such a degree that his ability to scare and yet also touch the heart are as sharp as any knife. I became acquainted with David’s writings only a year ago while searching for a good volume of poems to read during October, and was considering more of Edgar Allan Poe’s work when a copy of “The Devil on the Tree & Other Poems of Dysfunction” appeared on the internet. I took a chance on it, read it in one sitting, cover to cover, and found myself chilled to the bone. Read this one for yourself, and see. (Keith A. Fowler)< Less
