Stories that will move, amuse and even shock

A limited number (under two hundred) copies of The Old Man’s Last Sauna are still available directly from the publisher. Each will be autographed by the author and when they’re gone, they’re gone!
Copies of the second edition can be ordered through your favourite online vendor.
