The Pen is Mightier than the Bomb

War is a Failure of Politics
By Henry Disney

Unashamedly political poems from an author that’s been criticised for being too hard on Bush and Blair as opposed to the likes of Hitler or Saddam
 

Henry Disney's experience has convinced him that it is folly for the West to intervene in conflicts in the Moslem world, not the least because it leads to a surge of recruitment to the most extreme Jihad movements. His experience has also served to reinforce his Christian commitment to the rejection of war as a means of solving political conflicts.
These pointedly political poems are punchy and hard-hitting, the author pulls no punches in denouncing the warmongers. He purports a different approach because he is convinced there is a better way - Christ’s way - a rejection of violence…

About the Author: R.A. Milnes II

R.A. Milnes

I am a business professional working in the healthcare industry. Luna's Lost Ball began as a gift to my niece and nephew. I have such love for them that I wanted to give them something that they can hold on to. The beauty of this work is that I am able to incorporate my dogs, Shiloh and Luna, into telling a story of friendship, teamwork, sharing, and reward.

I hope that you enjoy this story and it brings your family joy each time you read it. My goal is to continue to write more stories under the Shiloh and Friends brand.

Over and Doubt ...Gracious English, dry wit, learned asides, well-researched background

Fancy a bit of political theory mixed up with your murder? a group of Danish students with daring plans for a new world order? a scam involving some missing music scores? wolf-ravens in Scandinavian folklore? Then this is the book for you!
The wife of a London modernist composer, unhappy in her marriage, seeks fresh interests at Copenhagen University, she gets involved in a student movement and meets a brutal death. The investigation uncovers some dubious characters and a confusing web of possibilities, but DI Wickfield is equal to the challenge – just! …


The Author - Member of an ancient but completely undistinguished York family, by chance born and brought up in the Midlands, Julius Falconer studied abroad before working as a translator back in the UK. Thinking that he could earn more as a teacher, to fund his extravagant life-style, he took a PGCE at Leeds University and duly turned to teaching. He slaved away at the chalk-face for twenty-six stirring years in both Cornwall and Scotland before retiring to grow cabbages in Yorkshire, where he still lives – when he’s not occupying a remote cottage in central France. His wife of thirty-three years unfortunately died in 2000. He has one daughter, married. In 2008, looking to fill his new-found leisure profitably(?), he started to write detective novels and is still happily scribbling away eighteen books later. Go to www.juliusfalconer.com for further exciting details.

“Erudite, witty and superbly crafted,
murder mystery from the master of the genre”
