Caligula Keith

This is the strange, but eerily familiar world of St. Cretien’s College. The pupils are monsters; the Head Master is mad; his Deputy is ignored; the Management Team cannot cope. The school is crumbling, physically, morally and financially.When new teacher Henry Pukeman arrives to start teaching in the prestigious public school of St. Cretien’s College, he soon begins to encounter the weird and wonderful characters who make up these grand institutions, and is drawn into the big events as they unfold in the school. Two volumes follow the big events throughout the school year, through the emails, memos and notices…

An inexplicable trail of clues, scattered across the centuries and over the whole of the English landscape, leads Thomas Zwillinger from his job as a teacher into the pursuit of a dark and secret treasure.

Against the stunning backdrop of some of England’s least-known cathedral cities, this unwilling adventurer begins to unearth a mystery buried deep in our history, and kept hidden by the early Church elders.

Who wants to hide the truth from us?

Vols. 1 & 2
A Half-life of Travel
This large-scale work follows our earliest civilizations from their beginnings on the continent of Herenor through to its destruction at the dawn of our own period of history.

As the early, holy scriptures and legends lead us into later works of poetry and drama, so we see the development of a complex culture rise and fall, until the last, catastopic days of this doomed continent.

A compendium, then, of a whole culture, with maps, illustrations and diagrams bringing the entire lost world of Atlantis to life.
This is an exploration of all the places I have ever visited, full of descriptions, personal impressions, anecdotes and reflections. This is not a practical travel guide, but a celebration of all the places that, however small or insignificant in official histories, have their own tales to tell, and their own characteristics to divulge.

Covering much of mainland Europe and parts of Egypt and China, many entries are accompanied by a monochrome thumbnail, some of which can be seen by clicking here.
Keith saw something horrific as he was driving along the motorway that day. Whoever jumped off the bridge into oncoming traffic, and whatever the circumstances of this mysterious death, its terrifying repercussions begin to dismantle Keith’s orderly life, swallowing him into a vortex of conspiracy and madness.
A bored civil servant, tired of his job, his girlfriend and his life, Keith dreams of transforming himself into a vigilante with a mission and, as the mystery around the motorway crash deepens, he begins to see a higher role for himself in a changing world.
And then there is the small matter of someone who seems to be living in his attic...

Who’d ever want to be a Titan?
Everything is fine, until the young Titan Prometheus learns that his uncle, the great Cronus, has castrated his own father, imprisoned a number of deformed cousins underground and has now begun eating the babies from an incestuous marriage with his own sister. Such knotty family issues play heavily on Prometheus’s mind.
Though he will go on to create his masterpiece, the human race, he will also face the wrath of the Olympians and taste the anger and torment unleashed on him by his most powerful adversary.
