Crossing The Cut – Carol Hathorne
Crossing the Cut is a fine collection of short stories from nationally acclaimed author Carol Hathorne.   In the first half of the book the stories are either set in the author’s native black country or in Africa where she worked for the church for several years.   Carol Hathorne’s love of the Black Country has spawned the autobiographical Five Minutes Love and Those Were The Days as well the novels Only Sixteen and Twenty One Today.   The second half of the book is a collection of 12 stories in the Our Mon’s Detective Agency series which chronicle the adventure’s of news agent turned detective Monty Smith, with the assistance of his brother Bing and Starsky the dog. As with all Carol Hathorne’s work, these stories are endearing and hilarious.

A Witness For Peace: Kindle Edition – Greg Stokes
Following the bombing of targets in Libya by the USA in 1986, Dudley man Doug Stokes was murdered in Marrakesh by an Arab looking for Americans - an act reported across the globe as that of a "crazed knifeman running amok". "A Witness For Peace" tells the real story in a powerfully written account which takes the reader through a working class life which ended in tragic death, through a stoic fight with intransigent insurers and indifferent politicians to an ultimate statement of hope for the future. "A Witness for Peace" is a moving story at times angry and indignant, but not without flashes of humour. The work critically analyses the product of the media as well as describing their excesses in obtaining it; it tackles the issue of crime and insanity in a case where the culprit got away with it; and it examines the role of professionals in an expanding bereavement counselling industry.  The conclusions are startling. Foreword by Lenny Henry

The Road To Number Ten: Kindle Edition – Greg Stokes
Margaret Hilda Thatcher, the marmite Prime Minister. You either loved her, or hated her. Greg Stokes detested the bitch. The Road to Number Ten - Thatcher's First Hours in Hell was written in the month after her death. Number Ten, is the new circle Hades MBC have built to house the Tories, Dante only having provided for nine. Thatcher is escorted from the Ritz to the River of Styx by the Grim Reaper. At the ferry port they are joined by the demon Baphomet, otherwise known as the Goat of Mendes. On the ferry she is witness to a pageant of her errors and led to believe a rescue is possible. Clarkson, Gove, and Nick Robinson put in an appearance, but Clarkson is only there to do a Top Gear special and Gove is only there to offer hell Academy status following their recent "outstanding" Ofsted. Arriving in hell the pageant of her errors continues on the quayside before she meets all the demons of hell including the Prince of Darkness himself, Satan. All of the staff of hell make it clear they think very little of Thatcher or Thatcherism and they are disrespectful throughout. Thatcher is then given a tour of hell to show that the service provided by Hades College For Miscreants is truly individualised. This tour features Deng Xiaoping, Pinochet, Stalin, Hitler and Fegelein before Thatcher comes face to face with Judas Iscariot who has gone incandescent at the news that Blair will be moved in next door to him when he pops his clogs as he is now the biggest traitor in history (to the working classes at any rate.) There are guest appearances by Sean Connery as James Bond and Joey Goebbels as himself before Thatcher is finally delivered to her furnace. Tebbit and IDS's furnaces are previewed as they are ready and waiting in the new tenth circle of hell. If you hated Thatcher, you'll love this. If you loved Thatcher then this story should probably come with a health warning as she is royally abused throughout. Now here's the thing though Maggie lovers. Margaret would love you to spend your money downloading it onto your Kindle as it is an example of private enterprise... Now that is funny. Warning: contains strong language as the Thatch is roundly abused by the demons of hell throughout. Further warning: There is a scene towards the beginning of the story in which there are two Margaret Thatchers. People of a nervous disposition may wish to avoid this scene. One Thatcher was one too many!

Last Virion Standing: Kindle Edition – Greg Stokes
This book is very much what it says on the tin. Hepatitis C is a dread condition, you don’t want it! Hepatitis C can kill you. It’s caused by hepatitis C virus. A single virus particle is called a virion, and a single virion can replicate. For that reason any treatment of hepatitis C has to take the infection down to the last virion standing, and then it has to take that one out too… Otherwise it will replicate and replicate and you will still be infected. In this book, the nature and pervasiveness of hepatitis C is explained as is the development of treatments. Author Greg Stokes gained infection through infected blood products. Part of the book is devoted to the nature of clotting disorders and how treatment was developed. It also focuses on how these treatments came to be infected and how a large proportion of the haemophiliac community was wiped out as a result. This episode is the greatest treatment disaster in the history of the NHS and is to the great shame of those involved in the serial failures of healthcare professionals and government. It is an alarming story that needs to be widely publicised. The author’s own journey to and through treatment is also chronicled. This is an alarming story too in parts. Although it is one man’s story, there is a commonality with the stories of all the other people who were infected; the inevitability of infection by virtue of having a bleeding disorder, lost medical notes, not being told when first infected...
