Wilkie Martin sets his Unhuman series of novels in the Cotswolds, where he lives. He introduces readers to a close-knit, small-town community filled with quirky and occasionally dangerous inhabitants, and an ‘unhuman’ policeman who maintains law and order.

Thank you, Deborah
I had not thought of publishing an addendum, but it's a good idea and I'll have to give it some thought. Drawing maps is not my strongpoint, though I have a sort of map of Sorenchester and its surroundings in my head that is based very loosely on the town where I live. I like to play with the idea that ancient myths and legends have some basis in reality, and it's fun to imagine that some of the beings from these tales are still around and more or less integrated into society. (Occasionally I meet people that make me think there really are unhumans!) I have plans to write at least one more Hobbes book when I have completed my current one.(less)

A couple of months after Inspector Hobbes and the Bones was published, I spoke to Rona Laycock in The Writers Room on Corinium Radio (our local radio station). I give a couple of short readings from the book (which I don't read as well as the excellent narrator of my audiobooks, Tim Campbell), along with a few comments on Hobbes's origins. This interview took place before the Hobbes audiobooks... Read more of this blog post »

“They forgot to feed them for a few days and, when they remembered, both lions lay limp in their cage, as if dead. A juggler and a clown went in to check - the clown had nicked himself shaving and was bleeding. Anyway, to cut a long story short, the lions weren't dead: they'd merely been sleeping and woke to find two men in their cage and the door wide open." "Gosh," I said. "That must have been very scary, especially for the bleeding clown." "Language, Andy. As it happens, the lions, ignoring the clown, went straight for the juggler..”

“I heard you’d gone into a monastery.’ Tony nodded. ‘I did, only I didn’t stay long. I couldn’t be doing with all the praying and getting up early, though I kinda liked wearing those robe thingies.’ ‘Cassocks?’ I suggested. ‘No, it’s true.”
