"And what a story this is, filled with such riotous colour and energy. One excess follows another, while the underlying absurdities push the story along to its perfect conclusion." Doug Watts

Man in a Zen Ambulance

 

Empty handed I go

and behold the Oka Revolver in my grip;
​I walk on foot,
yet a Nakajima R600 Kamikaze I am driving

Six cartridges. Four Noble Truths and one maybe-monk. Luther plays the fiddle, the Colonel is choking on his cigar and Rei has an itch she can't scratch. Everyone tryin' to stay in the zone. And don't even mention those goddamn chimps doin' that Elvis thing of theirs.

Zen Ambulance propels the reader into a violent 1950s world of  rockabilly, yakuza, temples and chrome-laden tail-finned cars.

 

Right Action.

Undeterred the Baron has a cunning plan. Our heroes set sail for the other side of the world where they will tweak the nose of history and make an incredible discovery.

"A totally original tale that dips into the surreal.
You really should read this book." Matt Carrell

The Chrome Kimono Files

 

Her name is Suriwan na Ayutthaya, a young Asian woman who has made her fortune importing eco-friendly products into the Kingdom. She has never married and doesn’t intend to. This is by choice because it’s left her free to not only run her own business but pursue her other great passion in life – writing stories.

 

Suriwan travels all over Siam and Indochina in search of crime, the unexplained and supernatural. She investigates newspaper articles, photos, digs up tombs and explores old city buildings; she persuades those not yet born, the living and the dead, to give up their secrets. When Suriwan returns from her travels she comes back to her favourite tea house. A refuge to forget her illness and write her stories.

 

Suriwan hopes you enjoy these seven stories as much as she has enjoyed writing them.

 

 

Pyramids and Prophecies

 

"Anyone want to buy a cheap sphinx...?"

The dreaded might of Imperial Rome is about to fall on Cleopatra's Egypt. There is wailing, the gnashing of teeth and the sound of small ploppy things. But all is not lost! For there is an ancient prophecy that tells of a stranger who will descend from the heavens and rescue the beautiful queen and her kingdom.

After rescuing Peter from a terrible fate outside a public convenience in Downtown Memphis, the Baron learns of the prophecy. He formulates a cunning plan. He will save Egypt, catch himself a queen and make an embarrassingly huge personal fortune in the process.

 

Without a moment to lose the Baron and Peter catch the first camel train to Alexandria. It's not long before the pair are up to their necks in the greatest story of love, intrigue, war, tragedy and toothpaste in the entire history of the ancient world.

Well, sort of.
