Livening up the Hay Literary Festival


Comedy scriptwriter, Stan Arnold, has lived on the holiday island of Lanzarote for six years, during which time he’s written six funny novels - The Implosion Saga.

The Implosion Saga has already had around sixty 5-star reviews on Amazon, without publicity!

The books feature Mick and Jim, two Soho-based corporate video producers who drink too much, don't earn enough and get too many death threats. It's a world full of often-maniacal, off-beat characters and bizarre situations - whether in Southsea, Las Vegas, North Yorkshire, Hollywood, Glencoe, the Caribbean, or up the far end of the Amazon.

Mick and Jim are continually trying to keep their desperately flared nostrils above water – or whatever unpleasant liquid they’ve been dumped into. Or to put it another way, they live life at the bottom of a barrel no-one wants to scrape.

In a previous life, Stan Arnold was a stand-up comedian playing the university circuit, doing 1200 gigs before bowing out for family reasons to become a copy and video scriptwriter where he wrote humorous scripts for the likes of Microsoft, Coca-Cola and British Telecom.

He also had a spoof rock band, the Stan Arnold Combo - type Stan Arnold Combo into any search engine. And for two years, wrote and performed funny topical songs on BBC Radio 4.
