Coronovirus has changed the face of the world, changed what we do, what we think about; changed our lives.

Once a prolific writer and publisher I have had to take a job and learn how to work,, to earn a living once again.

No longer have I the time or energy to produce works such as "The Secret Inside" , "The River Girls Torment" or "The Fisherman's Lament" Some may heave a sigh of relief, others, I hope, will be disappointed and feel a tad bereft losing a writer that they may have enjoyed. One that plowed their own path.

Still, you will find the odd thing (I hope) entering the public domain from me here and there and one day (assuming my survival) other writings, novels and tales. Until then....There are many old stories and books for you to read. Some of them rather good methinks.

Difficult, dark, sometimes dreadful but this dirge is wonderful at times, filled with little whims and peculiar regrets. Those notions, those simple eulogies, the ephemeral nature of the tale is the only thing that keeps it going as it would be churlish and dross otherwise. I think that you will have to convince your self that this is good. I am unconvinced (other than some well worked passages) still worth a read.

The third book in David Gemmell's four part Rigante series of books. Before there was George RR Martin, Joe Abercrombie, John Gwynne and Conn Iggulkden there was David Gemmell. Others had played with heroic fantasy, alternative histories and timelines, alternate realities since the fifties but David Gemmell was the one to bring the genre into the mainstream with each book selling millions of copies. Mr Gemmell found a worthy vein and mined it religiously. Rarely did he vary a winning formula and why should he. Each and every book he produced worked well. A spare but capable writer Mr Gemmell created the genre and inspired many great writers to follow him.

Ravenheart is a good example of his work and well worth a read.
