Mr South and His Warm Bucket

Well dear readers I have some exciting news for you : Mr South’s fourth book about Grunty Fen has been published!


And other

This book is the fourth of Mr South’s series of investigations into the world of Grunty Fen. Described by the author as “…non-existent tourist trails around imaginary locations…variable geography, questionable history and unreliable truth…” 

Discover an English region you never knew existed yet it is right on your doorstep. Up that boggy lane, behind those thorny bushes, over that stagnant ditch.

Let Christopher South lead you on a strange East Anglian journey to meet outcasts who can neuter wrens in flight and crafters who whittle whisks and whistles. But don’t go near the radioactive cosmetics and plague laboratories.

And don’t forget your bucket.

About 90 glorious pages plus an introduction and a free index.

The WARM BUCKET will be available very shortly. The people at McCaw Press (they now look after all the Grunty Fen books) tell me the books will be ready by Tuesday 10th December so that Father Christmas can have some if he wishes.

A new book from Mr South

My nervous sister Miss Edna and I are thrilled to tell you that Mr South has finally written the third book in his series about Grunty Fen! Called The Customs and Folklore of Grunty Fen it’s currently being looked at for spelling and will be available this autumn.  I’m told that the book will indeed, using numerous pictures and words, describe the customs and folklore of Grunty Fen.

I’m particularly looking forward to the description of some of our local dances – “Celery Nellie” being a favourite of my youth and illustrated here (photo from Mr South’s latest book). I was not present on this particular occasion due to stocktaking.

We’re just giving you fair warning about the book at the moment – we’ll let you know once it’s published. Keep your eyes peeled!
