JOHN AND ANNE HAMMOND have burnt their boats. John has taken early retirement, they have sold their suburban bungalow and bought a cottage in southern Spain. Life will be perpetual sunshine and cheap... More > booze. But the realities of everyday living intrude. Encounters with builders, bureaucracy, odd-job men and their attempts to integrate into their new life are frustratingly humourous. John tries writing a best seller and his wife takes up painting again. But when they have to contend with the Spanish driving test and the traumas of family visitors, forest fires and the late hours of Spanish friends, the pressure becomes intense. Our naive Brits sit on their terrace, the sun warm on their backs drinking wine and contemplating their new, palm-fringed swimming pool. Across the valley, whitewashed cottages cluster around a blue-domed church. ‘Oo-o,’ Anne says. ‘It’s ever so nice!’ John nods. ‘I’ve never been one to complain.’ ‘Yes you are,’ says his better half. ‘You complain all the blooming time.’< Less

Mary's Man By Richard Anderson
eBook (PDF): $5.00
When Robert Christmas is young he loses his mother in a car accident and a year or so later loses his father too, in a further somewhat freakish accident. Robbie's been living in a Welfare Home until... More > a teenager - so what are his prospects for any kind of fulfilling life? The story of Robert Christmas will grab your attention and hold it till you reach the final pages of this unusual novel. ‘Robbie’ or ‘Socker’ is very human, funny and relatable and since he’s a natural leader, people gravitate to him. ‘Mary’s Man’ is best described as an ‘apocalyptic novel’. It has its earthy bits but isn’t erotic. It has amusing incidents aplenty, romance, raging forest fires, awesome floods, stupendous earthquakes, financial catastrophes, strange happenings, even a “Chicago piano”, but above all it has some serious warnings for all of us. These are woven around the central character’s ups and downs and the activities of the novel’s notorious ‘black hat’.< Less
