“Slowly, gingerly, they crept back down the stairway, one step at a time. As they neared the bottom, they turned their head torches towards the end of the tunnel and the platform beyond, and then all sense of reality left them.”
When Rich stumbles upon a secret Victorian underground network, he sees not only a great historical discovery, but also a way out of his humdrum life. He convinces three of his friends to join him, and together, they venture deep into the maze of tunnels beneath London’s bustling streets.
A rude girl made good. An aspiring writer. A cinema usher from Wales. A bookseller who dreams of being an urban explorer. Four friends trapped together in one nightmarish situation as they realise some things are kept secret for a reason.
Will any of them manage to escape the horror that lurks in the Deep Level?

Partly inspired by the events of the 2020 pandemic, this short story collection distils the best of creative thought from that year about change of all kinds. It includes everything from a man changing in the sea, to the change of planting seeds and watching them grow. The change of growing up, to career change and homelessness. Comprising poetry and prose, humour and serious thought, this is an absorbing and comforting collection from Swansea and District Writers Circle, a group of dedicated amateur and professional authors from South Wales who meet regularly to exchange ideas and learn from their peers.
This tome features two short stories by Yours Truly (albeit written under my mortal name of Rhydderch Wilson), ‘A Chorus of Vultures’ and ‘Career Change’.

“The boat hit shore at 09:27 EAT. We can be exact on this because it was picked up by the perimeter cameras. It was an old open lifeboat, navy blue, and we counted seven people on board. Eight if you want to include the baby. Most of them didn’t survive more than ten minutes.”
Two sisters and a baby, shipwrecked refugees, wash up on a mysterious east African Island crawling with giant, blue-skinned savages. They flee to an abandoned scientific facility where incredible and terrifying experiments have been taking place, experiments that could change the course of human history.
Meanwhile, the only person who can save them is a lowly monitoring station employee half a world away in Arizona – but the clock is ticking, and the universe is about to come calling.
