Jefferies' next novel, After London (1885), can be seen as an early example of "post-apocalyptic fiction": after some sudden and unspecified catastrophe has depopulated England, the... More > countryside reverts to nature, and the few survivors to a quasi-medieval way of life. The book has two parts. The first, "The Relapse into Barbarism", is the account by some later historian of the fall of civilisation and its consequences, with a loving description of nature reclaiming England: fields becoming overrun by forest, domesticated animals running wild, roads and towns becoming overgrown, the hated London reverting to lake and poisonous swampland. The second part, "Wild England", is largely a straightforward adventure set many years later in the wild landscape and society (here too Jefferies was setting an example for the genre); but the opening section, despite some improbabilities, has been much admired for its rigour and compelling narrative.< Less

The Stonecutter's Tale By Simon Kellow-Bingham

The form of the narrative poem is probably the earliest written record of the English language as it emerged during the middle ages. The poets were intelligent and inventive and the scraps and... More > fragments that remain for study continue to fascinate and amuse readers and listeners today. Simon Kellow-Bingham has employed a similar method as these ancient rhymers to bring an old story to a new audience. The Stonecutter’s Tale takes two stories, that of Saint Erkenwald, an anonymously penned 14th Century alliterative poem and the timeless folk story, The Peddler Of Swaffham, and brings them together into twenty-five verses of rhyming couplets. First performed in 2001 The Stonecutter’s Tale has been refined over ten years to become the poem within these pages. This edition includes an updated introduction and note on the text with a select bibliography for further reading.< Less

Today it is the home of the many ghosts that still walk its corridors and parapets, all of whom were murdered within its walls! It is also the home to the British Crown Jewels, the yeoman warders who guard them and seven black ravens. Legend has it that if the ravens ever leave the Tower then the British monarchy will end and the country will collapse. Well, one day they all went missing and the task is given by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, to an unlikely hero, covered in acne and bullied at school, Jeremiah Gwinn and his three friends to find them. What they did find lurks beneath London in the underground tube system. Something that is so terrible that it can hardly be told.< Less
