Marie is turning 69 this year, but there are no signs of her slowing down - she has a new male lodger (very into conspiracy theories), an intractable iPhone to wrestle with, and a trip to India to plan! As usual the year brings plenty of challenges as well as opportunities. Marie is burgled, which sends the street into uproar. Ex-husand David is still around and getting rather too close for comfort. Marie's cat Pouncer is starting to look rather peaky (her conspiracy-theorist lodger is convinced someone is poisoning him), and probably worst of all, it seems her grandson Gene is getting too old to want to hang out with his granny any more. Maybe learning to graffiti and speak street slang will help win him back? Full of Virginia Ironside's inimitable wit and featuring plenty of popular characters from this series, this is a hilarious and touching look at getting older from one of Britain's best observers of relationships.

Always a glutton for punishment and in sore need of money again by 1976, Larry set sail for Africa to work in the supposedly lucrative mining industry. Africas casual attitude to everything, including Workplace Health and Safety, made Larry, with his astute ability to keep any piece of machinery going with chewing gum and string, a valuable national asset. Sadly, his work skills had no impact on his ability to pull birds, and teaming up with his best mate, the super-hot Jim Bridges, made his failures seem even more spectacular. Accompanied by the sorriest collection of colleagues, bosses and enemies to grace a book, Larry and his bunch of wily mates scrape through life, with an eye ever open for the chance of a quick buck, including winning the National Darts Championship and buying a racing yacht. They always managed to stay within the law unless the law was downright inconvenient and escaped Africa before the authorities discovered their expired visas or the mayhem and murder they had left behind. Whats more, Larry always managed to leave with a little something extra tucked away somewhere.

This is a steamy historical romance short story (word count 6,798) Harriet runs away from her family to be with Robert the Baron, the man she loves and believes will brighten up her life from her current boring existence, and show her the world! There is only one problem: Robert says he does not feel the same way. He had only promised to whisk her away based on idle chatter and intoxication; he had not meant for her to hold him true to his words. He has no intention of seeking a wife and he certainly does not want to face the brunt of her father and brothers’ anger when they find out Harriet has run away to be with him. Realising their misunderstanding, Robert and Harriet both finally agree, after much argument, that Harriet must return home and the two must get back to their separate lives. Their plan to return Harriet all fares well until they are ambushed during their journey by a highwayman. Robert is left temporarily unconscious, but this is not the only drama that unfolds as Harriet and Robert are forced to share a room for the night. Will they now finally give in to their obvious passion for each other? Warning: Sexual content included within the story.

From the moment I watched a documentary of Chris Bonington and Tom Patey climb the perpendicular flanks of the Old Man of Hoy I knew that my life would not be complete until I had followed in their footholds. That was in 1983 when I was thirteen. Within months I was tackling my first crags and dreaming of standing atop Europe's tallest sea stack with the Atlantic pounding 450 feet below. Those dreams went dark at nineteen when I learned I was going blind. I hung up my harness for twenty years and tried to ignore the twinge of desire I felt every time The Old Man appeared on TV.' Middle aged, by now a family man, crime novelist and occasional radio personality, Red Szell's life nonetheless felt incomplete. He was still climbing, but only indoors until he shared his old, unforgotten, dream with his buddies, Matthew and Andres, and it became obvious that an attempt had to be made. With the help of mountain guides Martin Moran and Nick Carter, and adventure cameraman Keith Partridge, supported by family and an ever growing following, Red set out to confront the Orcadian giant.
