THE UNCOMMON PRISON OF HENRY V HENRY

by Simon Bullivant


The gruesome murder of a young girl hits the headlines.

Loner Henry V Henry, a compulsive hoarder of hard-copy news, finds his interest in the crime becomes obsessive as one killing becomes two – and then the bodies begin to mount.  Anxieties and paranoia take over his already bizarre routines.  Each crime scene must be visited, the clues are staring him in the face, but others – including the Police – seem oblivious.  Henry believes he has narrowed the field of likely suspects.  Never able to silence his inner thoughts that the murderer is lining him up as the next victim, he pursues his quest convinced only his own troubled mind can bring the killer to justice.  The Police have their own suspicions, which include placing Henry ever closer to the crimes.

The book tells the story of a man's transformation from a marginalised, almost invisible human being, who inhabits a world of his own creation, into an individual who begins to find the means to escape.

KNIGHT: YORKSHIREMAN, STORYTELLER, SPY

by Greg Christie


The epic tale of a major inter-war novelist whose work was lauded by the literary establishment of the 1930s – but overshadowed by his biggest hit. 

A child immigrant to the USA, Eric Knight enlisted in Canada and returned to England to face the horrors of WWI, having already escaped once from the deprivation of the Yorkshire mill towns. His biography is an epic account that spans some of the key historical moments early in the last century. 

With a creative mind, and a formidable spirit that sustained him from the trenches of Ypres, and through the Depression, to literary success and acclaim, he did not shy away from defending his native England once more – as confidant to the US President, he supported the efforts to bring the US into WWII which led to his untimely death in the service of the OSS, the forerunner to the US Central Intelligence Agency.
