Peters has done it again...his talent in taking you along as if you're talking to a new pal you've just met in a bar, with great short stories...captivating, very very funny, and written in a highly individualistic style...I've downloaded all of his recent offerings, and found all of them equally highly entertaining..treat yourselves..

Like 'Solo' a book of highly amusing short stories, and some very observant ones at that. Indeed, I can see why I'm such a fan, it's obvious that I've found somebody who seems to be able to read my thoughts in some situations. I'm led to believe there's a novel on the way, the readers are reminded of this regularly and given what bits are left out of these tales, it should make interesting reading. Do keep them coming...please...

Brilliant! The powerful writing jumps from the pages. You, the reader, will feel as though you are listening to someone sitting beside you.
Each monologist speaks in a unique voice, addressing an unseen listener.
I received this book free through the goodreads FIRST READS program.

I picked up "Monophonic" by Andrew Peters through a special promotion on Amazon. Having read previous work by Peters because of their Welsh connection I was reassured to see that he has a much wider range of ideas and talent. "Monophonic" is a selection of short stories, many of which are laugh out loud hilarious, others more subtle. Peters uses all day mindlessness and idiocy as main target for his witty and often sarcastic subjects. With a great gift for observation of human behaviour, with re ...more

Born in the swamps of Glamorgan, I have wandered the world, generally with a guitar in hand.
Here I am in a beautiful village in central Spain, where the sun shines, the lake is warm, the drink is cheap and the people and animals are friendly.
I share my place with two gorgeous local cats, more guitars than I can count and a fridge full of wine.
Oh, and I write stories. Many of them about Otis King,
