The ballad of the rocks

What connects a prisoner in Peterhead with a quarryman in North Wales?

How did Ron Egyptian get his nickname?

We know all about the Holy Grail, but what about the Knight’s other (and some may say even more difficult) quest?

Following the successful publication of his story-in-verse ‘A Fishy Tail’ in 2010, Dave has brought together a number of his other writings.

Whether telling the tales of the Ballad of the Rocks, the Other Quest, evoking memories of childhood or creating nonsense verse, Dave shows how he loves words.

  • Bufo bufo
  • A creeping madness
