The Black Knights are finally on the road to stardom. Not so long ago they were just five Northern lads trying - and failing - to make the big time; a band no one had ever heard of, with nothing else to do except keep chasing a seemingly unattainable dream. But then along came Phil Martins, a streetwise roadie determined to turn them into a proper band. Suddenly, courtesy of Phil, they have everything they could ever want: drink, drugs, girls - and, finally, a recording contract. But fame comes at a price, and someday soon they'll have to pay.

Vail

Authors:
Trevor Hoyle

Following a motorway accident in which both his wife and daughter are killed, Jack Vail, now alone in the world, finds himself in London - though it is not quite the city as we know it. While his home in the North of England was stricken with poverty and radiation poisoning, the capital is characterized by consumerism, media-obsession and moral corruption. Basic manufacturing no longer exists, but pornography, show business and money-marketing flourish. Vail is immediately drawn into this sinister world, yet throughout the novel he attempts to maintain a belief in a larger order of things. In such a society, however, it seems impossible to defy the chaos, and it isn't long before Vail is engulfed by the ever-developing anarchy surrounding him. Through his nightmarish vision of the country in a not-too-distant future, award-winning author Trevor Hoyle vividly reflects the grim mood of 1980s Britain, the period in which this cult novel was originally published.

The Man Who Travelled on Motorways

Trevor Hoyle
Authors:
Trevor Hoyle

During his long, late-night drives along the motorways of Britain - through Manchester, London and the South Lancashire mill towns - our narrator falls victim to a series of psychoses. Soon these familiar landscapes are no longer what they seem, taking on a nightmarish quality as he descends into reminiscence and doubt, and the objective world crumbles to dust in his hands. The Man Who Travelled on Motorways is a cult classic, the first novel to exploit the mystique of motorway travel - the realities, unrealities and fantasies that take over the mind of the long-distance driver - from award-winning novelist Trevor Hoyle.
