Wry British humour at its best
It’s not the length that matters, it’s what you do with it that counts. And Iain Pattison certainly knows what to do with a short story.
The internationally-acclaimed humorist has been entertaining readers on both sides of the Atlantic for more than 15 years with a succession of satire short stories that have won prize after prize, appeared in magazines and anthologies, and been broadcast on the UK’s most prestigious speech radio station, BBC Radio 4.
If you haven’t read them, or heard them, you’ve been missing out. So here’s your chance to catch up with these hilarious delights!
In this debut Quintessentially Quirky collection of Iain's best offbeat tales, you'll encounter a horror writer who extracts a very apt revenge on her unsympathetic publisher, a mix-up with a giant statue that has the Dalai Lama hopping mad, a kidnapped woman held hostage in a busy Heathrow departure lounge, and The Horsemen of The Apocalypse facing a scathing performance review.
Plus, tinsel-loving Scrooge is haunted by ghosts who want him to despise Christmas, Willy Wonka turns to desperate measures to rescue his chocolate factory from recession, and a road building protest turns nasty when the three pigs take on the big, bad wolf.
From the unconventional and teasing to the downright surreal, this compilation of madly mirthful satirical gems is guaranteed to have you chuckling.
And an extra treat:
We were going to include a documentary on the making of Fiddle of the Sphinx, but luckily for everyone we relented. Instead, we're delighted to feature a guest story by one of Iain's favourite authors, Glynis Scrivens, who reveals what happens when a bored housewife's tapestry of her town takes on a life of its own in Connie's Project.

Between penning funny tales, he battles to give obscure words like eke a place in polite society. He resides in Birmingham, but often feels a mysterious urge to return to his cave in Tibet for Bank Holiday weekends.
