The Kid Looks Back is a collection of sixty-eight stories that cover a wide range of topics. I hope that his book will be a gentle hiding place where you can go to get away from something, return to something or go where you have never been. Some of these stories are true. Others are factually true, although bit embellished. Others are outright fabrications. Most look back to a kinder, mellower time. Digging for worms, swimming in a pond, using an outhouse or wading in a river may bring gross evaluations from our urbanized cousins. I hope that this book introduces them to life – with a smile. Most of the stories have a message. Many are simply humorous. Entertainment is the motive. Carefree is the mood. Try to find yourself within these pages. May the beak of reality crack your comfort shell. Start anywhere. Finish anytime. Enjoy!

Scottish by birth, anarchist by persuasion, odd bikes and obscure comics by collection. Retired from thirty years of front line child protection, he lives between Scotland and British Columbia with his wife, three adult sons, and a blessing of grandchildren. Allan has penned reportage, articles, and fiction since the early eighties for a variety of motorcycle publications: Canadian Biker, Back Street Heroes (UK), Biker and Renegade (US). Pocahontas and Ubermensch have their real life counterparts in his stable, and the most recent build is a ‘31/’48 Chout (Chief/Scout) bobber. As for the magic...? Well, that’s really up to you. “Tinker Tales Untenable’ is a collection of previously unpublished short stories celebrating magic and motorcycles. Tinker is the son of an absentee Irish gypsy dad and a Scottish mother, raised poor and turned out on the streets after her death in his early teens. Blood will out, and he becomes a trader in iron ponies, only to become enmeshed in magic. Somehow he survives a sorcerer’s apprenticeship to Magic John, a notorious gutter-mage, as detailed in previous collections: ‘Tinker Tales’ (voted Fiction of the Year by motorcyclefiction.com) and ‘Tinker Tales Untold’ (Book of the Month, motorcyclefiction.com) yet trouble and temptation lurk around every corner. Here Tinker is reacquainted with (dead) members of his old outlaw club, acquires an illuminated tattoo, and runs into the Soviet version of Wonder Woman—amoungst other trials and tribulations. Hop on the pillion, hold tight, and enjoy the ride through, Britain, Canada, and America—not to mention Fairyland and beyond. Illustrated by: Louise Limb

Twenty Tiny Tales is a collection of twenty-two moralistic, humorous and heart-warming short stories. Some are inspired by the freedom and music of the 1960s, others are tales about wildlife, birds, dogs, caravans– even motorcycles. Let the stories transport you to the rural settings of the West Coast of Scotland and Northumberland. ‘Flower Power’ has all of the charm of the Sixties– a time of pacifism, love and euphoria, and follows the story of Clara and her florist business. ‘The Museum of Childhood’ follows Sadie, a twenty-two year old graduate who secured a temporary post at The Museum of Childhood, an old four storey building full of childhood related memorabilia, with a ghostly secret. Twenty Tiny Tales will appeal to dog lovers, and readers who enjoy emotional, moving reads with the power to transport you to an array of settings and characters. The stories feature captivating plots, alluring depictions of the characters involved and most have a unique, shocking twist.

New Zealand's pre-eminent criminal barrister looks back on his remarkable life and times. In his time as a criminal defence lawyer in the New Zealand courts, the late Sir Peter Williams QC saw it all. From the days when abortion, homosexuality and even telling fortunes could see a person hauled before the courts, to sensational cases of wrongful imprisonment and police corruption, he witnessed the defining moments in the evolution of our modern judicial and penal systems. In this rich and wise collection of memoir, anecdote and forensic analysis our pre-eminent courtroom advocate recalls the people (including Ronald Jorgensen, Arthur Allan Thomas, "Mr Asia", James K Baxter, Winston Peters and many more) and the cases (both celebrated and obscure) that defined his remarkable career. Fearless, astute and compassionate, Peter Williams proves - beyond reasonable doubt - that truth is nearly always stranger than fiction. Peter Williams QC was New Zealand's best known criminal barrister. He appeared in some of the country's most celebrated and controversial trials, including the so-called ‘Mr Asia' case, the notorious Basset Road machinegun murders, the Arthur Allan Thomas appeal and the murder trial of World War II hero Peta Awatere. Made Queen's Counsel in 1987, he was appointed a Knight Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit shortly before his death in June 2015.

In Travelers' Tales Alaska, contemporary adventurers, seekers, and lifelong Alaskans take you into the "Last Frontier" for wild and poignant adventures. Walk among bears, witness the Inupiat taking of a bowhead whale, and spend time "weathered-in" on the Bering Sea coast. Follow the seasons of commercial fisherfolk in the world's most dangerous seas, sail the Inside Passage, or flight-see with bush pilots famed for high-stakes navigation around Denali, North America's highest mountain. Discover the 49th state’s quirky side, including an entire town that lives in a single World War II-vintage high-rise, a "Hairy Man" who roams the Bush, and backcountry gourmands who communicate with edible plants. Drive the Alaska Highway or head north along the pipeline Haul Road to the Arctic coast, not simply to get there, but to be there. Get the inside view as Alaskans share their stories of learning a new land or guiding tourists through Native culture. Whether you choose camping at Wal-Mart or casting for grayling on a lake named Paradise, whether you travel the Great Land in actuality or in your armchair, these stories bring Alaska alive, in all its latter-day complexity and glory.

“This compilation of tales conforms to a simple Freudian fact: You're as crazy as you thought, but in good company.” —Bicycling Magazine Okay, so some of us might be a bit too attached to our bicycles. Outsiders may say this is “inappropriate” or “unnatural.” But most cyclists will agree that passionate, all-consuming bicycle love is a fine and glorious thing. Bicycles take us places, physically and metaphysically, we cannot go without them. They move us; they make us dizzy and giddy, exhilarated and exhausted. All athletes love their sport, but cycling has a fetishistic side to it—the love of this deceptively simple machine that allows you to silently float, race, climb, glide over the earth. It brings the rush of wind to your ears and the surge of force through your body as you lean into a turn. It brings you to the fields and woods and sunshine, moving down the open road. Its beauty and charisma are undeniable. These sixty-two personal tales of the many varieties of bicycle love range from dreamy reminiscences of childhood bikes to powerful, sometimes insane adult attachments to mountain bikes, road bikes, and tandems. They all celebrate the freedom of cycling, the elegance of the machine, and the beauty of the act. They tell of the strange and wonderful things a bicycle has brought to life, the relationships that bloom or fade under the bicycle’s influence, and the unforgettable places bicycles have brought us. Funny, revealing, and intensely emotional, these stories show the secret inner life of every cyclist.

Tales in a Rearview Mirror is a collection of true stories as told from the driver's seat of a Dublin taxi. Some are funny, some are sad, some are foolish and some are bittersweet. Pretty much like the people Donal Ruane observes as he reluctantly drives around the city. All human life is here. There's the criminal's girlfriend who's just bought a house for cash in "Fox-bleedin'-rock". The eccentric American looking for a hooker. The drunken northsider chancing his arm to share a taxi home with a south county darling. The mother and father of all family rows in Ballyfermot. And lots more besides. Tales in a Rearview Mirror is the real deal. It's a hugely entertaining, brilliantly written slice of real Dublin life that you won't get anywhere else. "An irresistable read." Gerry Ryan

Bike Lust roars straight into the world of women bikers and offers us a ride. In this adventure story that is also an insider’s study of an American subculture, Barbara Joans enters as a passenger on the back of a bike, but soon learns to ride her own. As an anthropologist she untangles the rules, rituals, and rites of passage of the biker culture. As a new member of that culture, she struggles to overcome fear, physical weakness, and a tendency to shoot her mouth off—a tendency that very nearly gets her killed. Bike Lust travels a landscape of contradictions. Outlaws still chase freedom on the highway, but so do thousands of riders of all classes, races, and colors. Joans introduces us to the women who ride the rear—the biker chick, the calendar slut straddling the hot engine, the back-seat Betty at the latest rally, or the underage groupie at the local run. But she also gives us the first close look at women who ride in their own right, on their own bikes, as well as a new understanding of changing world of male bikers. These are ordinary women’s lives made extraordinary, adding a dimension of courage to the sport not experienced by males, risking life and limb for a glimpse of the very edge of existence. This community of riders exists as a primal tribute to humanity's lust for freedom.
