The Oxbridge Limerick Book

Filthy limericks for every college in Oxford and Cambridge

by Lewis Williams

156 pages  ISBN 978-0-9932472-4-8

The third and final volume in Lewis Williams's not-for-the-easily-offended filthy limerick trilogy.

 

Presenting the very finest in vulgar humour, The Oxbridge Limerick Book revives the ancient and noble art of the filthy limerick, injects it with a large dose of twenty-first century humour and applies it to the venerable institutions of Oxford and Cambridge, giving every college in the two universities a filthy limerick to call its own. The results will cause hilarity and provoke outrage, with what is quite possibly the best and most original little book of filthy limericks to be published since 1928.

Lewis Williams went to Darwin College, Cambridge (for one evening, that is, in 2015 for a dinner he was invited to). On the other hand, he did genuinely work at Oxford University for a number of years.  His ignominious departure from its employ had nothing whatsoever to do with his writing rude limericks concerning the place or its employees. He is the author of The Great British Limerick Book and The Scottish Limerick Book. He hasn’t devoted the whole of his recent past to the art of writing filthy limericks, either. He is also up to over level 400 on Candy Crush.

About the author

Child of Winter

Ten dark and twisted tales

by T. R. Hitchman

154 pages ISBN 978-0-9932472-3-1

About the author

T.R. Hitchman’s first crush was on Christopher Lee. She grew up in love with the eerie stories of Edgar Allen Poe and, as a child of the eighties, was profoundly affected by being allowed to stay up late to watch Hammer House of Horror on TV. She has written for The Gothic Society and her acclaimed novella, The Homecoming, was published electronically in 2014. It is included here in revised form, along with nine other equally brilliant dark and twisted tales in her debut story collection, Child of Winter.

A brilliant collection of ten dark and twisted tales by T.R. Hitchman, master of modern macabre.

 

An old woman harbours a painful secret and meets a troubled man with a dark secret of his own; a narcissistic journalist learns that the camera can tell the truth in more ways than one; and a man makes the worst mistake he ever made in his life in discovering that sometimes you shouldn’t talk to strangers ... Ten stories of love, loss and disappointment with a dark twist that are the product of the imagination of writer, T.R. Hitchman, the new master of modern macabre.

AVAILABLE NOW

Surely it can’t be done. But it has been done. For the first time in the history of mankind someone has been dedicated enough and fool enough to write a filthy limerick for every town in the UK which, unlike Leeds or Devizes, doesn’t already have a classic filthy limerick to call its own.

From the author of The Great British Limerick Book, comes a second limerick book with more of the very finest in vulgar humour and a limerick for every town in Scotland, granting, in fact, every town, city or village in the country with a population of 3,000 people or more a filthy limerick to call its own.
