Edited by Jeremy Kroeker and with a Forward by Ted Simon, this is a new collection of short stories from riders you’ve heard of, and many you haven’t. It’s a great volume to just dip in to for entertainment, or as a way of deciding whose work you should buy next.
Some of the stories included are:
Lois Pryce exploits her dead grandmother and an imaginary husband to access the Congo.
Neil Peart finds his rhythm through the curves of North Carolina.
Paddy Tyson numbs his fear of crocodiles with a few drinks in Australia.
Carla King rides with a screaming, doped-up trucker in China.
Sam Manicom is forced out of country by the military in Sudan.
Geoff Hill breaks a Royal Enfield, falls in love, and becomes a hookah hooligan in Iran.
Jeremy Kroeker yearns to slap a rain gear designer in Slovenia.
Ted Bishop tricks himself into one final ride through the United States.
Mark Richardson puts his foot up and makes connections in Rwanda.
Jordan Hasselmann stares down the barrel of a wooden gun – and possibly a real one, too – in Guatemala.
Christopher P. Baker nearly crashes as he crushes crustaceans in Cuba.
Ted Simon ponders humanity while observing a rescue at sea off the coast of Malaysia.
For a full review of what we think of this new book, click here, but more importantly, come along to Motorcycle Live this year and ask Jeremy all about why he chose to include what he did. He’ll be flying in from Canada specially to be on the Overland Magazine stand throughout the event at the NEC.
He will also have stock of his other titles, not often seen in the UK.
