I don’t know how it happened but I didn’t post the videos from our
tour date at Happy Ending NOT Guaranteed Albion Beatnik in Oxford! Liam Hogan did a great job without any actorly support.
I will just remedy that…
There we go. A reminder of what a lot of fun we had choosing locality appropriate stories.
You can by a copy of
Happy Ending NOT Guaranteed direct and post free here, of if you are in Oxford I expect Dennis still has a couple in stock, or if you are going to Liars’ League tonight, Liam will be there with a handful of books a pen for signing, and a hopeful expression.

Here we all are having a rollicking good time at Albion Beatnik in Oxford. There was a bit of discussion about the correct pronunciation of ‘C’ in Latin , and there was apparently a bona fide Classics teacher in the audience, so only one author was brave enough to read their Magna Carta clause in the original.
Here’s some snippets of video (yay! got the video to work!) to whet your appetite for
TONIGHT’s event in Lewisham.

With Oxford (Thank you to Dennis at Albion Beatnik for hosting) under our belts – and some in-focus video – I think – which we will share tomorrow, our thoughts turn to next week, and LEWISHAM.
Join Jim Cogan, Liam Hogan, David Mathews and Cherry Potts for stories of day release, love in captivity, crossing borders and escaping the past,
Wednesday 7pm 23/11/2016 Lewisham Library: 199,Lewisham High Street, SE13 6LG
Which will be perfectly
HOWEVER: COLCHESTER, we are going to have to let you down for the time being! Sorry! Greenstead Library are temporarily unable to host us, and we are looking at rebooking in Mid January. Just co-ordinating author diaries now.
Here’s a quick snippet of
Cliff Chapman reading Jeremy Dixon‘s Poem Tabernacle Lane, last night at the Liberty Tales Launch in Greenwich.
Had a problem with the camera again, so it will only be sound files for this evening. FRUSTRATING!
Thanks to everyone who read last night: Bernie Howley,
Alison Lock, Katy Darby, Carolyn Eden, and to Carrie Cohen and Cliff Chapman for reading on behalf of Jeremy, David Guy and Anna Fodorova
You can hear Jeremy read
Tabernacle Lane, and two others himself TONIGHT 7.30 at Albion Beatnik, 34 Walton Street Oxford OX2 6AA, alongside stories from Jim Cogan, Carolyn Eden, Nick Rawlinson, Katy Darby and more poems from Elinor Brooks and Bernie Howley,.
Explore an unusual Gaudy Night, fish weirs, walking out, when it safer to appear witless, finding yourself in San Francisco, religious intolerance, and exactly what the value of a passport really is.
Thanks to a grant from the Arts Council we are able to take Liberty Tales a little bit further than we have taken some of our books, and we will be visiting Oxford, Colchester, Newcastle and Bath, as well as several dates nearer home in London.
So first up:
Join us on Friday 18th November at 7.30, at
Albion Beatnik Walton Street Oxford OX2 6AA for some Magna Carta inspired readings.
Jim Cogan, Carolyn Eden, Katy Darby, Nick Rawlinson, Poems from Bernie Howley, Elinor Brooks, Jeremy Dixon. Explore an unusual Gaudy Night, fish weirs, walking out, when it safer to appear witless, finding yourself in San Francisco, religious intolerance, and exactly what the value of a passport really is.

Some of our poets are very obliging about helping to promote
The Other Side of Sleep, here is Alwyn Marriage reading at Oxford and London
There are messages buried in this poem, but without Alwyn to explain them you are unlikely to discover them…
Here’s a couple of different takes on the title poem:
The Other Side of Sleep: The poet, Kate Foley at the London launch ( Lauderdale House),
and the editor,
Cherry Potts, at the Oxford launch ( Albion Beatnik)
