    Not a book, but I saw The Beast With Five Fingers



    when I was must have been 7 - I liked black and white films. I still dunno how I ended up being allowed to watch it but it gave me nightmares for fucking years afterwards.

    Must memorise this phrase for general hipster usage.

    Graham Oakleys Magical Changes

    this book still haunts my dreams. anyone else come across it?

    "It allows the reader to create 512 different surreal pictures by mixing the top and bottom half of pages (even the original pictures are really strange). The illustrations are extremely detailed and delightful, and could be enjoyed by Primary/Elementary school-aged and up."

    The Green Knowe books.... creepy for no clear reason

    A Castle of Bone... something very odd about this that I can't remember... it's the 'A' in the title that throws me... 'The' I could have coped with... best freaky cupboard story ever... fuck you Narnia...

    Sponge, X and Y - a surreal tale of fish troubleshooters...

    Leon Garfield esp Black Jack...

    The Boy With The Bronze Axe

    Alan Garner, of course

    I Am The Cheese - utterly perplexing and confusing then, still a little weird now... and of course Cormier also wrote The Chocolate War and countless other very close to the bear / bare bones children's stories.... with complex psychosexuals and all kinds of nasty spins...

    Thirded (or whatever we're up to now) on Watership Down, book and film both.

    The only bit I remember from Rosemary Sutcliffe's The Eagle of the Ninth is a scene of some kind of religious ritual witnessed by an AWOL Roman soldier in a chambered burial mound in second-century Scotland. Awesome stuff.

    If we're allowed adverts...the "Mister Soft" Trebor softmints ad:



    Of course I was too young to realise at the time that this is quite transparently a visual representation of being on ketamine. And to think they showed this to kids!

    Yeah very nasty, teenagers being properly cruel to each other, I could dig it.
