… and time
The year: 1968. They were turbulent times, with huge advances in science and music that remains with us today, but was also marked by what seemed like a never-ending war and, in the U.S, the assassinations of both Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy. Brian Williams charts a tempestuous year in, inevitably, Those Were the Days.

And further back still ...
Stewart Ross is pleased to announce that his Timewarp Trials, launched by Evans before they disappeared, have now reappeared under the Readzone imprint. Stewart describes the idea: ‘Professor Geekmeister has found a way to bring historical characters back to life for your readers to put on trial … are they guilty or innocent?’ Titles are Boudicca, Guy Fawkes, Henry VIII and William the Conqueror. Interacative and delightfully illustrated. For ages 7–11.
