Title: Here be Dragons
Author: Phil Girdlestone.

Description: This is more an "autotechnography" than autobiography in that it reveals almost nothing about the author himself. It focusses almost entirely on his professional career as a locomotive engineer which began in the late 1970s on the Festiniog Railway in Wales, took him to Sudan in the 1980s, and at the end of that decade to South Africa where he settled near Durban. See the book review page for further details.

This title is expected to be available in October 2017. Anticipated price £32.50 (subject to change).
