Wry British humour at its bestIt’s not the length that matters, it’s what you do with it that counts. And Iain Pattison certainly knows what to do with a short story.The internationally-acclaimed humorist has been entertaining readers on both sides of the Atlantic for more than 15 years with a succession of satire short stories that have won prize…

Venture into Iain's colourful and off-beat imagination and you'll encounter:
* A medieval printer who accidentally turns his dull history book into a sizzling, best-selling sensation.
* An explosion at a top secret research base that sets time hiccupping backwards and forwards with bizarre and perilous consequences.
* A team of Glasgow detectives assigned to Middle Earth to investigate a missing ring and a murdered hobbit.
* A road rage quarrel over a disabled parking spot that sends punches and crutches flying.
* An opium-fuelled switch in career for Sherlock Holmes that has Doctor Watson seeing red.
* And the moment Quasimodo considers opening up a beauty business...

Packed with laughter, unexpected twists and more than the occasional groan-inducing pun, these surreal stories are a must if you love sit-coms, sketch shows and the long lamented Carry On Films.

And as if that isn't enough, this collection of quirky gems features a bonus guest tale from popular short story writer Sally Jenkins. In "Growing Out of Burgers" she charts what happens when an exchange student's trip to France goes awry after his host family's alluring mother appears to want more than an Entente Cordiale!
