Happy Publication Day to Alexander Fisher, George Buchanan and John Wick! Our June releases are now available from all major retailers.
Delirium by Alexander Fisher
With a pandemic and tyrant changing the world order, this new dystopian novel asks can the power of hope reignite humanity?
Alexander Fisher’s debut novel, Delirium, evokes in readers an emotion we never expected to comprehend so fully – the fear and trepidation that comes from living through a pandemic.
Centring on a very different disease (this time a river-born virus from South America) the author has created a dystopian tale in which every minute counts; both in terms of saving survivors from the ongoing ravages of the pandemic, but also an ideological madness brought on by the unrestrained and repressive actions of a tyrannical colonel.
Despite its bleak undercurrent, Delirium is a compelling story of hope against all odds. Penned by an author who knows what it takes to keep his audience enthralled, Alexander Fisher’s latest work also encourages readers to question one of life’s conundrums – why, when handed the gift of power, are we as likely to use it for evil as good?
Dangerous Ways by George Buchanan
This new memoir centres on a fragmented life characterised by insecurities and a spirit of adventure.
Dangerous Ways describes the author’s early world, from the 1940s to the 1970s, in a spirit of detached confession.
With his literary finesse – subtle, descriptive, nuanced – evident on every page, this poignant memoir captures not only the essence of a long past era but the nomadic realities of military family life which led him to turn outwards to his ‘mentors’, among whom were those who proved transformative, leaving their undying imprint on his consciousness.
This outstanding memoir looks forward from its author’s past towards the growing inclusivity of today.
Still Alive (Surprisingly) by John Wick, with K Ratzenburg
The stand-out memoir of former SAS officer and paratrooper, the middleman in the 2009 expenses scandal, exemplifies who dares wins (most of the time)!
Still Alive (Surprisingly) is one that will have most readers contemplating how they have been spending their lives, whilst this ex-military and security supremo has been travelling the world and getting caught up in more than his fair share of danger and derring-do.
Penned by John Wick and K Ratzeburg, Still Alive (Surprisingly) captivates with the recounting of Mr Wick’s irrepressible courage, audacious military tales, ability to extricate himself from the stickiest of situations and unwavering commitment to his country.
Acquainting readers with the author’s life story up to 2009 and the fallout of the Parliamentary Expenses Scandal, it has been written with an eloquence and understatement that evokes in all of us (even the most danger-averse) a desire to get out there, ‘shake things up a bit’ and live life to the full.
A gem of a book that is as much about family, friendship, travel and military and social history as it is about adventure and resilience, Still Alive (Surprisingly) concludes in 2009. But, as this septuagenarian still has multitude of stories to impart, fingers crossed a second instalment with follow, sharing what Mr Wick did next.
