This is the inspirational tale of Sergei Ivanov, affectionately known as Socrates, who first appeared in Dan Millmanâ€™s book, The Way of the Peaceful Warrior. Set against the backdrop of Tsarist Russia, it tells the story of how he acquired his hard-earned wisdom.
Reviewed on Richard & Judy on 9th August 2006. This is very special, a history mystery-cum-love story that delves into the vampire myth. Ranging across continents and ages, incidents and emotions, it catches you by surprise and leaves you breathless. If you are prepared to accept one or two unusual facts, then it all becomes frighteningly feasible. Well written and sumptuous, it is a perfect gem. You’ve got to read it as it is one of the best books of the month. Comparison: Lev Grossman, Adrian Mathew. Similar this month: None but try Michael Cordy or John Connolly.
Appeared on “Hay-on-Sky” 28 May. This wonderful story about believing in the unexpected and magical has just had its 40th birthday and remains as relevant to children now as it was when it was first published back in 1968. When a tiger turns up on the doorstep one day, the little girl and her mother just welcome him right in and offer him tea. He sits neatly at the table and eats his way quietly through every scrap of food in the house and every drop of drink, too. Then, just as politely, he takes his leave. When Dad comes home, there’s nothing left for him so he takes the whole family out for supper.
A collection of short romantic stories set amongst a backdrop of the warm sandy beaches of the Caribbean. A perfect holiday read.
