Book Review: 50 Years of Glastonbury by Malcolm Croft

50-years-of-glastonbury, book

Glastonbury is a festival like no other, and this visual history follows the world-renowned gathering on its 50th anniversary - complete with photographs, line-ups, and firsthand accounts.

From its humble beginnings as a folk festival (where £1 got you a ticket and a pint of milk), Glastonbury has grown into one of today’s biggest global music events. Hundreds of the world’s most famous acts have played the iconic Pyramid Stage - including the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Coldplay, Radiohead, The Smiths, Jay-Z, Metallica, and Paul McCartney - and tickets sell out within minutes. 50 Years of Glastonbury celebrates the music, the mud, and the mayhem that have made the festival so popular, for fans and artists alike. Packed with incredible photographs and stories of the acts and attendees who have made Glastonbury a phenomenon, this is a must-read book for festivalgoers and music fans everywhere.

10 Steps to Publishing Your Own Book this Year

books, the-writing-greyhound

AD | If you have a head full of ideas and a creative mind, one of the things which you may have considered trying out this year is publishing your own book.

Writing and publishing a book is a huge challenge and it is something which can take months or even years to complete... just look at how long it has taken George R. R. Martin to finish the last books in his Song Of Ice And Fire series!

Writing and publishing a book is a huge job and one which will take time and effort. So, what better time to start than now?

Book Review: Predator by Wilbur Smith

predator, wilbur-smith, book

THEY MURDERED HIS WIFE.
THEY DESTROYED HIS FUTURE.
NOW THEY HAVE TO PAY.

Two men are responsible for the death of Hector Cross’ wife and only one is left alive: Johnny Congo – psychopath, extortionist, murderer, and the bane of Cross’s life. He caught him before and let him go. Now, Hector wants him dead. So does the US government.

Congo is locked up on Death Row in the most secure prison in the free world, counting down the days until his execution. He’s got two weeks. He wants out. He’s escaped before and knows he can again, and with whizz kid D’Shonn Brown enlisted, he might just have a chance.

Cross, still licking his wounds from his last bruising encounter with Congo, is back and ready for work. In the middle of the rough Atlantic stands oil supertanker Bannock A. Terrorist activity in the area has triggered panic and there’s only one person they can trust to protect her.

What is promised as a cakewalk turns out to be much more, a mission that will test Cross to his emotional and physical limits. But a life spent in the SAS and private security has left Cross hard-wired for pain and as he is thrown into the bull pit once more, he will not stop until he has snared his prey.

Hector Cross is Predator.
