Summary:

A poetic, explosive thriller about teenagers on a night out that ends in violence. Winner of Metamorphosis 2008. In Bromley every Friday night, same time and place, Potts, Baron and Finch get ready for their weekly dose of booze, birds and burgers. But their night out takes a dramatic and terrifying twist when an explosion rocks the town centre, and a suspicious population points the finger at them. ''"Overspill" is set in Bromley, but it could be set in any town anywhere in the UK. There are hundreds of Bromleys in Britaina These are the towns that millions of us grow up in.'' - "Ali Taylor" ''Ali Taylor''s slice of urban life is small but thrilling. It is driven by a pulsating rhythm, a sense of place, a menacing undercurrent of casual violence waiting to erupt, and a layered story that suggests the lads'' friendship was about to be blown apart by other factors as adolescence gives way to adulthood. The writing is gritty and sweaty, with a tom cat swagger and cut with half-rhymes and littered with assonance and alliteration... a tiny gem''- "Guardian" ''A dazzling display of dramatic virtuosity... darkly polished, thrillingly inventive... gleams with gutter poetry''- "Time Out""

Who would you be if you forgot who you were? And who are we without our memories? Are we just a bunch of chemicals sloshing around?

Summary:

The latest Detective Chief Inspector Woodend mystery When Captain Robert Kineally went missing from Haverton American Army base in Devon in 1944, it was generally assumed he had lost his nerve and deserted. But now, twenty years after the War ended, a body found on the near-derelict base seems to tell an entirely different story. DCI Charlie Woodend has strong reasons for not wanting the case. As a sergeant on secondment to the Americans, he served at Haverton himself, left it only a few days before the murder, and he is personally involved. However, he is given the case, and it is soon plain that while the British Government expects one outcome, the American Government will be happy with nothing less than the opposite.

Summary:

Rona Munro's vividly imagined trilogy brings to life three generations of Stewart kings who ruled Scotland in the tumultuous fifteenth century. Charismatic, cultured, and obsessed with grandiose schemes that his nation can ill afford, James III is by turns loved and loathed. Scotland thunders dangerously close to civil war, but its future may be decided by James' resourceful and resilient wife, Queen Margaret of Denmark. Her love and clear vision can save a fragile monarchy and rescue a struggling people. Each play stands alone as a unique vision of a country tussling with its past and future; viewed together the trilogy creates an intricate and compelling narrative on Scottish culture and nationhood, full of playful wit and boisterous theatricality.
