A collection of David Bowmore’s best loved pieces brought together for the first time. Inside, you will find futuristic dog fights, fantasy dragons, hard-bitten detectives, nostalgic romance, time travellers, horrifying butchers, the trenches of the Great War, Old West gunslingers and light-hearted adventurers.

Open the book and get to know Corky, a disgraced cop; Morty, a cocktail loving man-about-town; Kruz, an undertaker pilot; Georgette, an adventuress of style and taste; Father Thomas, a priest with a shocking past; and Sally the black-eyed cocker spaniel.
