Ghost Voices – Barry Morris
"You round eyes, you come to my country, point your fingers , condemn our beliefs, rubbish our culture, try to change our values. What you know of values?" Set within the turmoil of the Vietnam war, Ghost Voices is a stark depiction of the affects of combat upon some of the men of 2 Bravo 6 Platoon Royal Marines.; their relationships, attitudes and reactions to dealing with the perpetual boredom and sudden horrors that peacekeeping can bring. Barry Morris reveals what others often omit; the unrelenting struggle to overcome fear and the powerlessness of having to witness abuse of non combatants. All monies from this title go to Amnesty International.

The Book Cellar – Barry Morris
The first in a collection of sublime, outlandish and supernatural tales. Barry Morris uses his unique style, taking the reader on frenzied voyages to far-off lands and fractured time anomalies, and leisurely walks through the everyday happenings of ordinary people. The anthology contains a wide variation of stories including: The Book Cellar, a seemingly condemned bookshop receives a visit from a mysterious stranger; No Extra Time, a reluctant Football Association referee is transported back to the killing grounds of the western front to resolve a long running dispute, and The Importance Of Being Ernie, a high functioning premium bonds computer acquires sentience after forming a relationship with a disabled woman. Plus: The Talisman, will an apparently bogus amulet finally yield good fortune? Gate 17, an enigmatic messenger takes a disenchanted England football supporter on a nightmare excursion; Suicide Ride, a shell shocked war veteran replays his final moments as he heads for an underground station; Stolen Childhood, an entrepreneur’s identity is threatened after a burglary, and Swansongs, two lateral stories detailing the history of a 1950’s Buick Sedan and the life of a Bewick’s Swan as they undertake their final journeys. The anthology also includes a collage of chronicles from the author’s life.
