    Oldies for the oldies dust head lovers who don't mind dusting off that old vinyl and taking a journey back to the 70's love ballads, when music was music and love was love

  • 00:37


    in Books


    The Platinum Raven and other novellas is a paperback comprising a collection of Rohan Quine's four novellas The Platinum Raven, The Host in the Attic, Apricot Eyes and Hallucination in Hong Kong, each novella being also available by itself as an ebook. All four are literary fiction with elements of magical realism and a dusting of horror, celebrating the darkest and brightest possibilities of human imagination, personality and language.

    The Platinum Raven is a triple convulsion whereby our heroine Raven escalates herself into the Chocolate Raven and then the Platinum Raven, from London to Dubai to the tower in the hills in the desert - then back down again, forever changed.

    The Host in the Attic is a hologram of Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray, digitised and reframed in cinematic style, set in London's Docklands in a few years' time.

    In Apricot Eyes, a cat-and-mouse pursuit through the New York City night involves a preacher, a psychic and a dominatrix, broadcast live on air - until a horror is unearthed, bringing two of them together and the third to a sticky end.

    In Hallucination in Hong Kong, sliding from joy to nightmare and back, a plane-flight frames a journey into Jaymi's and Angel's polarised identities and perceptions, where past and present merge in an obsessive fantasy of love, death, horror and apocalyptic beauty.

    John Martin: Never Say Die

    in Self Help

    New Zealand's John Martin has always lived life on the edge.  At age 13, he biked around New Zealand's East Cape.  At age 16, he made his first parachute jump.  At age 18, he purchased his first aircraft and learned to fly.  At age 21, he made New Zealand's first base jump and at 24 years old he obtained his commercial pilot's licence.

    At age 26, he received burns to 70% of his body, face and hands when his crop dusting aircraft crashed and burned. He spent the next three months in intensive care in an induced coma, and underwent numerous medical procedures including skin grafting, debriding and reconstructive surgery. Within a year he returned to flying. He entered a partnership and purchased a branch of the company he previously worked for, providing the flying service to Motiti Island. A year later he set up his own Tandem Skydiving business which he still runs today. 

    In quieter times John spends time cruising around the Coromandel Coast on his yacht where he continues to explore his new found passion for writing. His first book, a short story called “Out of the Ashes” was used by several schools as a study aid and saw John listed with Celebrity Speakers NZ as a motivational speaker.  John’s story “Just Shut Up and Jump” is not of one of self pity but a testament as to what a positive approach and never say die attitude can achieve.
