Nero by Nick Mann is a story based on military history. Now my historical knowledge is poor but is not as bad as my knowledge of military history which is shockingly poor so I had no idea whether this story was true or not. However, a rudimentary googling tells me that there was indeed a Battle of Dettingen in May 1743 and King George led his troops into battle, the last king to have done so apparently. So I’m guessing this is faction i.e. fiction based on fact. I enjoyed this story. It was different from anything I usually read, tightly written and with good description.

Ah, Christmas. The season of goodwill to all men. Or is it? This collection of twelve short stories, and poetry, by students of the Intermediate Creative Writing course at Nottingham’s Central College brings the festive season bang up to date. There’s nothing fluffy about this lot. These stories are food for thought. If you’re dreading Christmas they may make you realise there are others worse off than yourself. But it’s not all death, doom and gloom by a long shot. There’s a goodly measure of humour in there as well, along with heart warming poetry and clever Haikus.
