THE BOOK
Some of the ideas discussed in this blog are published in my book called "The Bluestone Enigma" -- available by post and through good bookshops everywhere. Bad bookshops might not have it....

And now for something completely different...



A word of explanation as to why I have had my eye off the ball at intervals over the past month.  Been busy.  As light relief from all this serious scientific stuff, I have been working on another little book -- a man has to earn an honest living, after all........

and if you are interested in putting the frighteners on somebody loved or unloved, you can even get a copy or two via my website, using Paypal....

Christmas presents, perhaps, for MPP, GW, TD and other splendid fellows?

By the way, shadowy figures have been observed up on the mountains at intervals over recent months, sometimes seen in the pouring rain and swirling mist, and sometimes invisible.  They seem to be digging furiously -- maybe for some mysterious treasure left by the fairies?  Leave it with me -- I am on the case.

That seems like a Grimme story to me

Did the Brothers Grim ever visit Preseli? Maybe in spirit....

Your Marketing Department has missed out on the Halloween opportunities......

Are those Shadowy Figures you have observed wearing day-glo jackets? And has Alice Roberts also been in the neighbourhood? If so, it could be another appearance by the dreadful SPACES ensemble. Suggest you do some testing for ectoplasm.

Did they write 'The Emperor's New Clothes' or was that a Danish Fancy?

Spirit...

I decided that the collective noun for Islamic spirits is.
an intoxication of djinns.

plus yesterday this came to me

where would an intoxicated Buddhist sleep?
in a drunken stupa.

Have I too much time on my hands?

Where did you borrow that jackdaw on the cover from, Stonehenge? If so, English Heritage may claim a percentage of any sales profits.

What profits? And I always carry my own jackdaw round with me. Never know when you might need one.

Brian,

I just have to tell you I love the front cover of your ghostly book! Did you design it? Or had a professional do it.

BRIAN JOHN said...

Thanks Kostas. It was designed (in a hurry!) by my son Martin, who isn't a professional book designer -- he practices acupuncture and Chinese medical herbalism in Somerset! But he's got quite a talent for book and website design -- maybe he should start a parallel career! He has done the last dozen or so of my book covers.

Jon Morris said...

The cover is great Brian. You have a really talented son.

TonyH said...

And good luck to Martin in tracking down that Geoffrey Kellaway book, with its mention and photograph of the Stonehenge Ordovician ignimbrite boulder (your Post of 24th October), which was discovered during Colonel Newall's investigations during the 1920s.

Looks like Isambard Kingdom Brunel, top hat and all, has washed uo on the Pembrokeshire coast..............
