Big Fish

Andrew Osmond

Become a ‘backpacker in peril’ on the paradise island of Bora Bora, as one by one your fellow travellers begin to mysteriously disappear…

Innocent abroad Stuart Ward becomes a backpacker in peril when he travels to French Polynesia and the island of Bora Bora as the first stop on a Round-the-World itinerary. Arriving hopeful of adventure and romance, instead Stuart is unwittingly drawn into a conspiracy to cover up a fatal road accident, and he quickly discovers that the beautiful paradise islands are no Eden. Things begin to look even more perilous for Stuart as one-by-one his co-conspirators begin to mysteriously disappear...

You may travel to the ends of the Earth, but you can never travel far enough to escape your own guilt.

For wannabe globe-trotters, armchair travellers and mystery fans, alike.

I have found Liminality a very original and poetic read - lovely evocative descriptions that give me a real sense of place, and the link between photography and memories is one that I have always considered ripe for great literary and philosophical exploration. Altogether a fascinating and interest... view book

Dear Toscka, 'Ballard meets the Beach' brings with it a high expectation, as I am a massive fan of Ballard and a quiet fan of The Beach. Expectations were well and truly met in Shalimar, though. I found your dialogue quickly drew the reader into the story and both the setting and story convincing ... view book

"It's just bird poo" has now become an awful Ohrwurm that will not leave me rest. I always enjoy the humour and intelligence of your writing and Knights in the Garden of Spayne is no exception. All the best, Andrew. view book

Dear Marit, I have thoroughly enjoyed Diary of a Would-Be-Protagonist and, like so many other people on this site, can entirely empathize with the mindset that must have led to the story. It has made me return to my old filing cabinet of forgotten writing just to make sure 'past friends' are doing ... view book
