Living OneThe Living One: Contemplations on the Gospel of Thomas

Stuart France

A unique and personal telling of the Gospel According to Thomas sheds a clear light on the underlying symbolism.

Two stories, side by side and seemingly unrelated cast a new and unique light on one of the scrolls from the Nag Hammadi Library. In this retelling the words of the ancient codex are given a startling relevance to the eternal quest for truth faced by every one of us.


Crucible of the SunCrucible of the Sun: The Mabinogion Retold

Stuart France

The Mabinogion, a collection of ancient and almost universal tales, is retold with great beauty and humour in an eminently readable style.

The ancient tales of the Mabinogion contain themes which are echoed through all times and cultures. This lyrical and poetic retelling captures the ancient spirit of the bard and invites the reader to share the tales once more around a common hearthfire. “Very inspiring.” Philip Carr-Gomm.

Adventures in Sacred Chromatography

Sue Vincent & Stuart France

Two friends discover a mysterious blue light in an ancient church and the landscape of history seems strewn with beheadings and symbolism.

A romp through the ancient landscape and churches of England brings Wen and Don face to face with a strange light as they find their way through a tangled web of history; unravelling myth, legend and religious iconography. What does the rainbow of light signify… and why have so many saints lost their  heads…?


Heart of AlbionHeart of Albion: Tales from the Wondrous Head

Stuart France & Sue Vincent

Arcane lore and a vision that spans the ages meet in this second romp through an ancient landscape.

Don and Wen begin to understand the skills of the ancients who shaped the landscape of Albion. Join them as they explore hill forts that are the gateways to vision, the stones that hide wisdom in plain sight, and the shocking revelation of Thornton-le-Dale. And then, there’s the jester…


BookCoverPreview22Giants Dance: Rhyme & Reason

Sue Vincent & Stuart France

Games, fairytales and nursery rhymes take Wen and Don’s attention as they explore the myths of the old gods in a sacred landscape.

Cat’s cradle as sacred geometry, the mystery of the shepherd’s crook and why there had to be four-and-twenty blackbirds are just a few of the odd themes Wen and Don are able to link as they continue their romp, learning of Merlin and Odin and how, in symbolism, there is nothing new under the sun.

Stuart France & Sue Vincent

How is it possible to hide such a story… the hidden history of Christianity in Britain? Oh, there are legends of course… old tales… Yet what if there was truth in them? What was it that gave these blessed isles such a special place in the minds of our forefathers? There are some things you are not taught in Sunday School. From the stone circles of the north to the Isle of Avalon, Don and Wen follow the breadcrumbs of history and forgotten lore to uncover a secret veiled in plain sight.

Stuart France & Sue Vincent

…. something was spawned up on the moor… something black that flew on dark wings…It heeds not time or place…It seem to have developed a penchant for the travels of Don and Wen….
“Are those two still at it?”
“Apparently….”

Sue Vincent & Stuart France

A Graphic Novel
Where do they come from?
They come out of the night…
Where do they go to?
Back to the night they return…
They dance in the dark to pipe and drum and fiddle
They dance in the dark with fire and brandished flame…

No-one knows who they are…
But why do they dance?
What is the story behind this magical spectacle?
There are rumours, legends…
Don and Wen set out to investigate.
In a darkened corner of the Waggon and Horses, Langsett, a hooded and enigmatic figure whispers secrets…

Bone-white winter gleams in the moonlight. Silent shadows hunt in the night…. The Hunter’s Moon sails above dark hills, caught in the empty fingers of the treetops. A mysterious company gathers to kindle the flames of the dance; arcane patterns of fire woven in the blackness to the beat of the drums. Silent as ghosts in the darkness, others follow their trail, lurking in the night to watch… and wait… seeking their chance to usurp the forest throne… Old Fox wanes with the fading year, his fur touched by the silver of frost. Can he hold his realm against the ghostly challenge of the Demon Dogs? Yet all is not lost. They have seen it in the smoke… three magicians use their arts to breathe life into the spirit of Fox…

Stuart France & Sue Vincent

For once, Don was right… it was all Wen’s fault.
If only Ben had not insisted in going back for the gun…
Don and Wen should hand themselves in and share the fate of their co-conspirator. It would be the noble thing to do.
Does this course of action appeal to our errant duo?
Not on your Nelly!
As Ben languishes in the dank cells of Bakewell Gaol, Don and Wen hit the road. Their headlong dash for freedom takes them north, where they are beset by a host of ‘Orphan Stones’ clamouring to be led back home.
But they are not alone… and the sinister Black Shade is not the only thing dogging their heels as they blaze their unorthodox trail through the signs, seals and sacred sites of old Albion…

Stuart France & Sue Vincent

“Foxes, Welch!” When Special Agent Tommy Welch is called into Tee’s office, he has little idea of the perils of his latest assignment. Accompanied by the sensuous Miss Hunnyfludd, Welch believes he is to investigate an outbreak of mysterious Foxes. Instead Tommy finds himself flung far back in time, to the court of King Arthur, where a Green Knight is about to extend a deadly challenge… Within the humorous spoof that frames the story, the reader is transported to Camelot to witness the confrontation of Gawain and the Green Knight. Based upon the story that lies deep at the heart of Arthurian lore, the threefold nature of the ancient myth unfolds…

    1. Yes, it surprises us too sometimes Kev…
      The initial remit was to get books out quickly to support the work we do with the Silent Eye.
      Things have settled down a bit now but there are plenty more in the ‘pipeline’…
