The Stonecutter's Tale By Simon Kellow-Bingham
Paperback: $5.67

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

Within these pages you will find 22 short stories crammed with characters from history, from myth and legend, and from next door. Abigail Wyatt’s imagination will surprise and delight short... More > story lovers everywhere. ‘I guess that most people, if they are honest, will admit to having one nasty secret, some action or experience, either from their childhood or a long-ago, lost life, the recollection of which fills them with horror, guilt, or disgust; or, perhaps, makes them blush to the roots of their hair with stomach-churning, toe-curling embarrassment. It’s natural to suppress such memories – and, in this, I’m no different to most guys – but sometimes it seems that there’s something out there that won’t let matters rest.  At such times, you could almost swear there’s this great universal finger that wag, wag, wags away from one side of the ether to the other and then pokes its nail-bitten end deep in someone’s private pie…’ From Audi Alterem Partem< Less
