"Residue" is my first collection of non-genre mainstream stories, and was published by
HalfCut Publications in both paperback and illustrated hardback on 20th November 2006.

"Residue" contains 19 stories, of which 7 are previously unpublished.

Laura Hird has provided a quote for the cover as follows:

"(his) characters are real, clear as day, living, breathing, angry human beings. I feel like I'm standing next to them, eavesdropping. Wonderful stuff."

 

The contents page is as follows:

Dirt
Never Doubt My Love For You
Paper Aeroplanes
Doors, Windows & Gutters
Be Like Me
Offof
People You Know Who Excite You
Contradict
Double Cross
In A Box

The Summer of Hate
Like A Single Eye
Tight
The Stone Box
By The Time I Get To Egypt

Here are some sample reviews:

"This book will entertain you, because Hook is an excellent writer, but, more importantly, will make you think -- which is what fiction should always do" - Mario Guslandi, Infinity Plus

"If the moody, reflective, almost static approach to fiction is your cup of tea, then I would heartily recommend it - it probably doesn't come much better" - Sean Parker, The Zone

"Hook displays skills as a writer of multiple styles. Residue has styles that will suit all tastes. Some will delight, others will torment the reader" - Karina Kantas, Future Fire

"It is clear that Hook is extremely
skilled at observing and describing the small details of life"
- Alison Littlewood
