During the 1960s swarms of motorcyclists roamed along London's North Circular Road in nightly burn ups. Their pit stop was the Ace Cafe at Stonebridge Park. This is their story as told by the boys who raced and the policemen who chased, woven against a background of contemporary reports.

Seattle, with its spectacular natural beauty and rough frontier history, has inspired writers from its earliest days. This anthology spans seven decades and includes fiction, memoirs, histories, and journalism that define the city or use it as a setting, imparting the flavor of the city through a literary prism. Reading Seattle features classics by Horace R. Cayton, Richard Hugo, Betty MacDonald, Mary McCarthy, Murray Morgan, and John Okada as well as more recent works by Sherman Alexie, Lynda Barry, David Guterson, J. A. Jance, Jonathan Raban, and others. It includes cutting-edge work by emerging talents and reintroduces works by important Seattle writers who may have been overlooked in recent years. The writers featured in this volume explore a variety of neighborhoods and districts within the city, delineating urban spaces and painting memorable portraits of characters both historical and fictional.

Chronicles Of Nightmarch

Author : Duncan Stearn

This compilation of the columns of Nightmarch covers its beginnings in the Pattaya Mail newspaper in June 2000 and goes all the way through to its conclusion in the Pattaya One newspaper in September 2011. Almost unwittingly it provides an interesting social history of the growth of the nightlife scene in Pattaya in the first decade of the twenty-first century. This volume also includes items that were cut out of the published versions because they were deemed to strong for the censors. They reappear here because in most cases the items were nowhere near as controversial as the editors thought at the time. Compilations of newspaper columns very often fail to have the impact on those readers who recall reading the pieces in the original. This is simply because the material for a newspaper column is rarely written with posterity or the future in mind. Its impact is meant to be felt in the present. Even so, there will be many who have lived in Pattaya or been regular visitors to the city over the time frame of the Nightmarch column who will no doubt have their memories jogged of the times they spent trawling the bars. For others, who might not have ever been to Pattaya, the pieces will provide an essential introduction to the jigsaw that makes up its unique nightlife.

It became - for most of them - the centre of their social activity and natural supplier of entertainment; the highlight of each week. Too strong a statement?
