In the footsteps of an ass

Avaialbe on Amazon
A light hearted account of a walk along the Robert Louis Stevenson Trail in southern France, following in the footsteps of the author of Treasure Island and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. When Stevenson set off in the late1870's to walk from Le Monastier to St Jean it was to collect material that formed the basis of his early book 'Travels with a Donkey in the CÚvennes'. The route of Stevensons' meandering travels is now an established long distance trail. This is an account of my meandering thoughts as I followed in the footsteps of Stevenson and his donkey.

Dracula in the North

Available on Amazon
An account of the hitherto unrecorded visit of the vampire Count Dracula to Scotland, along with miscellaneous reminisces about his childhood, his youth, and his adult life prior to his vampirastion.

The Vampire Midge

Available on Amazon
The story of what happened when a Scottish midge encountered the vampire Count Dracula. It has long been supposed that the blood sucking midges of Scotland have their origin in an encounter between Count Dracula and a native Scottish midge, whereby Dracula in the form of a bat, bit a midge turning it into a vampire midge that then infected all the other midges of Scotland creating a nation of vampire midges. This is all so much hokum. The true story of Count Dracula and the vampire midge is set out in the pages below in order to debunk this myth. It could have been set out in a single paragraph but where would be the fun in that.
