ISBN: 1841144789
AUTHOR: N R Phillips
Apocalypse Dreckly
Apocalypse Dreckly
  • Description

This is the third book in a trilogy by this Cornish award winning Cornish author and bard. His first novel, The Saffron Eaters, was an original winner of the Peninsula Prize for a new novel, and went on to major acclaim and publication in paperback by Hodder Headline. The second, Horn of Strangers, also achieved success.

Apocalypse Dreckly is, as itís title suggests, different in style to the earlier works. It is essentially a sideways look at St Ives at the time of the famous total eclipse. All those living in Cornwall at the time will recall the panic into which the authorities were thrown, with dire predictions of overcrowding and food shortages, and with panic among the emergency services.

With much humour, the author captures the mood of the times, overlaying it with a story in which many of the characters who also appear in the first and second novels, are also included in this final work. Hugely funny - and particularly so to all those who know and love St Ives.

THE AUTHOR: Roy Phillips is a Cornishman born and bred. He is a bard of the Cornish Gorsedd for services to Cornish Ornithology. He has written extensively on the regionís wildlife, is a former editor of the Cornish Bird Report and is closely associated with the Cornwall Birdwatching and Preservation Society. In 1987 he won the TSB Peninsula Prize for his novel The Saffron Eaters and has published a much-admired sequel Horn of Strangers.

ISBN 1841144789, paperback, 210x148mm, 196 pages.
