Cartographically challenged ~ Tallis Steelyard (aka Jim Webster) on tour with THREE new books…

Wonderful writing from ‘Tallis Steelyard’. (Jim Webster)
A feast of imagination, written in a unique style.
This is my kind of imaginary world!
Immerse yourself in the everyday life of Port Naain.

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

People will remember that I do sometimes lecture at the University here in Port Naain, and over the years I must have taught numerous young people. Perhaps I ought to merely say that they were exposed to my wit and erudition. I’m not sure whether many of them learned anything. Still, there were some whom I felt would go a long way in life.

      Best wishes, Pete.

      1. If I ever get through the series I’m reading (at half a chapter a night it may take me some years 🙄 ) I will put him on my TBR list. Am not sure how it happened that I’ve gone from reading a book a week, to one every couple of months!
