Video: London 1927 by Claude Frisse-Greene

A moving postcard of the past

This is one of the most profound and engaging glimpses of the past – of a Western city – that I’ve ever seen. Applause go to Tim Sparke for posting it on Vimeo. And to Claude Frisse-Greene, who made this movie as part of a series of travelogues in an age when colour was almost unheard of. Beautiful.

For me, connecting on a personal note, I’ve only ever visited London (clubbing in the 1990s and noughties, and later savouring the history and culture that resides forever there), never lived in the place; but it is a remarkable and fascinating city throughout all ages.  Rather wonderfully, the video focuses a lot on the area of the Thames around Tower Bridge – which is the location of the first scene of the novel I’ve been working on since last year (The Social Club click here to read notes on work in progress). Lovely to see the location in a historical context.


God Seed a sci-fi dark fantasy novel by British author David J Rodger

Available in Paperback or Kindle

Paperback : from LULU & Kindle: US ($), UK (£), DE (Euro)

GOD SEED { novel } For acclaimed documentary film-maker, Adam Kyle, this was going to be another feather in his cap. Embedded within a team of highly trained corporate mercenaries, he was covering the start of an operation in England. But when the operation goes terribly wrong, Kyle finds himself battling for his life, his sanity, and maybe even his very soul as a new and dramatic story unfolds, dragging him across the globe…and beyond. It isn’t just his documentary that is at stake, but the fate of every living thing in the Universe. David J Rodger delivers a gut-wrenching and epic journey in a novel that plunges deep into the crawling chaos and takes you to the edge of the membrane of human existence.
