The Game
Blackton Football Club is in trouble, and the chairman is about to sell his star player to save the club and himself from ruin, as well as indulging in a bit of match fixing. But his daughter, the star player’s fiancée, may have something to say about this. And the star’s redoubtable mother looks likely to scupper both the marriage and the transfer. A story of love, honour, class and football in the 1900s, by the author of Hobson’s Choice, Harold Brighouse.

Thomas Anson’s musical world and his composer chum Anthony Kammell – including musical illustrations. This includes recently discovered unpublished material.

The Shepherdess’s Secret – The full historical background to the Shepherds Monument and ideas behind 18thc Shugborough – which I will argue are revolutionary, extremely important and little known.
