The Screen Savers is a quirky, bittersweet comedy novel laced with mystery, satire and offbeat romance.Adam, who aspires to be alone, loves watching non-mainstream films at his local cinema – films that, thankfully, few people want to see. But when the cinema decides to stop showing these films, he must do the unthinkable: make more friends. At the very least he must work with others intent on keeping these screenings going: first, a mysterious woman who knows everything about him, then a group of misfits who are suspiciously similar to his old friends. Together they form The Screen Savers.Most of the films Adam watches are about how to gain friends – about how to get over your flaws and integrate back into society. But what do you do if you’ve got too many friends and they’re all irritating? How do you create a life doing what you want to do rather than going along with the duty that friendship entails?Amazon (UK)/Goodreads Reviews:“Very Funny”“Extraordinarily comedic moments”“If you like surreal humour like The IT Crowd, then I heartily recommend this book.” “This is a very funny novel and I guffawed many times while reading this.” “I really didn’t want to put it down”For fans of Magnus Mills, Matt Haig and Nick Hornby as well as offbeat sitcoms like The IT Crowd, Black Books, Seinfeld, The Mighty Boosh, The League of Gentlemen, and more.If you like offbeat comedy, take a “Look Inside”!

Officer Material Vol 1 (Men of the Octofoil) by Sally Hull

Officer Material Vol 1 introduces the platoon during basic training, the year before America enters into World War Two. In this five book series, a platoon of misfit American soldiers from all walks of life forms a team to be feared during the European Theatre of Operations during World War Two. A simple country farmer shares his faith with these, his fellow GIs, and changes their lives forever. The son of a billionaire seeks to earn his father’s love and respect by becoming an officer. A street-wise, homeless teenager makes the army his home and family. These three bond together and form a family in the midst of bombs and grenades exploding all around them, day and night. Back home, their families learn to grapple with the realities of war as well—ration stamps, fear of receiving telegrams from the war department, more work to do than there are hands to do it, the temporary and permanent absence of husbands, fathers, brothers, and sons. Through it all, though, God’s provision is amazingly demonstrated.
