Following the November publishing of 'Northern Derbyshire - Snapshots in Time', Tom Bates' prolific output continues with another book from New Age Poetry Press due to be published in time for Christmas!
'Weird, Wacky & Wonderful Derbyshire Folk!' (ISBN 0952210843) is described on the title page as "A Book of Tributes" and in the Introduction the author writes:
"In the pursuit of writing potted biographies for magazines and newspapers, I have interviewed some well-known Derbyshire celebrities over the years - and spent long hours in the local studies library researching famous and infamous ones from the past! Many of these potted biographies have been previously published in magazines and newspapers; the unedited versions, some of which have been either updated or otherwise re-written, are collected together here for the first time in book form. My selection criteria is simple: - my intention in producing this book is to pay a personal tribute to some of those who, either by their hair-brained insanity, courageous and adventurous spirit, or pure talent and tenacity, have defied the odds and impressed me sufficiently to warrant inclusion.
They will certainly impress the reader!"
