The Bookshop

Here is something I did over at Morgan’s blog, being a nice chap and all, check it out!


shakinThis blog post is brought to you from the mind of Ste J, book defender/lover/obsessive, knowledge seeker and occasional afternoon napper who can be found and is always happy to make your acquaintance.

The Bookshop


Entering the gateway

quaint handle and ring of the bell

a friendly greeting and the musty scent

that pleasantly assails the senses


A world of infinite dreams surrounds

of pirates, distant worlds and lavish parties

each crafted teaming with life and imagination

all waiting to be explored and devoured


The ages gather here too

ordered casually together

side by side

covered in dusty patience


Time moves differently here


the world outside ceases to be;

the perfect existence


And now there is just you

and sound of pages turning

the crackling breaking the silence

adding to that unrivalled atmosphere

Where One Reads

Here is me on the excellent Letizia’s site, if you arent already enamoured by her words then you must go explore her awesome blog.

reading interrupted.

Whenever I receive notice that Ste J from Book to the Future has written a new post, a smile comes across my face.  I know that I will either be introduced to a new book or revisiting an old favorite.

But it’s not just that he discusses books; it’s how he discusses them.  He loves books – tattered secondhand ones, the great classics of our times, pulp fiction, obscure ones on cartography, and he describes each reading experience through his unique wit and style.

I asked him if he would be willing to write something for my blog about where he reads as it’s something that always intrigues me about his posts.  Much to my delight, he agreed. Here it is:

The Adventures of Siskin and Valderan

As if you didn’t have enough books to read, here’s another:

Alastair Savage

The Adventures of Siskin and Valderan

Way back in the mists of time, I started this blog as a way of finding readers for my fantasy series, which at that time was still being written. Back in May 2012, I would never have believed that it would take so long to get my book out there into the (virtual) hands of readers. It’s been a bit of an epic journey but I have got there in the end, and I’m very happy to say that the first book in the series has just gone on sale on the Kindle store!

Readers from the US and Canada can find it here on

Readers from the UK can find it here on

It can also be found on Amazon, via a unique identifier which is B00LGJLOQS.

If you’d like to have a sneaky peak at the book, check out this treasure trove of links
