THE ADVENTURES OF TOM MOORE Captain Sir Thomas Moore was a war veteran just like any other British military man. Having served in the military during the Second World War, in India, and in the Burma campaign, he was living a quiet life in a village called Marston Moretaine in Bedfordshire with his younger daughter Hannah, and her small family. Captain Tom, a moniker he earned in the twilight days of his life for the unprecedented service he did to humanity during a time when the world was in dire need of it. The year 2020 was calamitous in more ways than one for the entire world. A single-celled microorganism had laid siege on the world, leaving the masses defenseless and vulnerable. Millions have died so far and though vaccines are now available within a year after the pandemic commenced, the virus is far from gone. It is mutating at rocket speed and new variants that are manifold times more infectious than the original one. The healthcare systems were inundated with patients and healthcare officials, doctors, paramedics had to work around the clock to meet with the mounting casualties. People were dying like flies and there was an unprecedented fear among the masses because here was an unheard-of virus that was a super-spreader, and the death toll reached new heights despite the relatively low mortality rate. The fear of death was exasperated by the fact that no cure or vaccine was available at that time because it was a new virus. Amidst all the chaos that ensued following the pandemic, stringent lockdowns, closure of airports, and the overall lugubrious milieu, one man emerged as a beacon of unconditional love and selfless compassion. Captain Tom didn't climb Everest, nor did he conquer the English Channel, Captain Tom simply walked into the hearts of the people by taking 100 steps on his garden, an act meant to raise money for the harried healthcare workers. He was profoundly touched by their service, dedication, and commitment to care for the sick even when they knew they were jeopardizing their own life and the lives of their family. Walking up and down your garden is not a remarkable feat but Captain Tom was a 99-year-old veteran whose 100th birthday was fast approaching and he couldn't simply sit and warm his seat when the world was in a shutdown.

Sit down and enjoy the charming, uplifting and inspiring story of Captain Tom this Christmas *** NOW A SUNDAY TIMES NO 1 BESTSELLER *** 'A wonderful life story with lessons for us all . . . beautifully written' DAILY TELEGRAPH 'Gloriously enthralling' DAILY MAIL From his humble Yorkshire childhood, via the battlefields of Burma and the peaks of the Himalayas, to becoming the NHS and the nation's hero during Lockdown, this is a journey for all of us. __________ Who is Captain Sir Tom Moore? You've seen him on the television walking the length of his garden. A frail elderly man, doing his bit at a time of crisis. But he wasn't always like this. Where did he come from? Where was he made? From a childhood in the foothills of the Yorkshire Dales, Tom Moore grew up in a loving family, which wasn't without its share of tragedy. It was a time of plenty and of want. When the storm clouds of the Second World War threatened, he raised his hand and, like many of his generation, joined up to fight. His war would take him from a country he had never left to a place which would steal his heart, India, and the Far East, to which he would return many years later to view the sight he had missed first time around: the distant peak of Everest. Captain Tom's story is our story. It is the story of our past hundred years here in Britain. It's a time which has seen so much change, yet when so much has stayed the same: the national spirit, the can-do attitude, the belief in doing your best for others. In this rich, happy life packed with incident you will encounter time and again the curiosity, courage and generosity that saw Captain Tom look around him during our current crisis and decide that something had to be done . . . 'Engaging . . . His upbeat nature shines through and reminds us how much worse this year would have been without him' Evening Standard 'A wonderful read. Captain Tom is a beacon of light, and hope, and positivity' Piers Morgan, Life Stories, ITV 'A great book' Good Morning Britain 'A beautiful book. We have so much to learn from Captain Sir Tom' Chris Evans, Virgin Radio 'Fascinating. It's the life story of an ordinary man who is extraordinary' Michael Ball, BBC Radio 2

An Order of Fleet and Saur Chicken Thomas Norman was happy just being the first human from Earth to command a ship in the Space Service of the United Worlds Council. He had a small ship and a crew of strange critters and he was quite content with his mission of orbiting a dead planet. He didn't plan on saving his world or of starting an interstellar war, but an odd series of events were dragging him kicking and screaming in that direction. And to survive he would need to learn about the true origins of mankind, dreams, revenge, and, of course, chickens. Always the chickens...
