What's in a name? My previous articles on the meaning of the place names of Bishop's Cleeve and Winchcombe created a lot of interest. This month I'll travel to some of the places in the Directory's wider circulation area to explore their meaning. Our journey starts in the Vale and ends in the Cotswolds. The key to understanding any place name is to discover the earliest spelling, although the settlement itself could have come into existence many years before. In the Vale we encounter three villages named after the leader of a group of people, possibly an extended family. This was a logical and very common way to identify settlements. So we'll start in Alderton. The name might suggest a farmstead or settlement (ton) where alder trees grew. However, the earliest name, recorded in 1059, was Aldritone. Experts believe that the name was originally in three parts, meaning the farmstead or settlement (tone) of the people connected with (i) a man called Ealdhere (Aldr). The same format can be applied to nearby Toddington (Tuda) and Teddington (Teotta). But the interest in these three names does not end here! Toddington's earliest written record is found in Domesday Page 6

Book in 1086; Teddington's appeared in 780AD. The similarity in the type of name suggests that 'Alderton' and 'Toddington' are also likely to have been formed by 780AD, and in all probability all three names were in existence a century or so before then. Teddington has a further mystery, for the name Teotta has never been found anywhere else, except in Tettenhall in Staffordshire. It's just possible that it was a pet name for Theobald, who gave his name to the Tibblestone which still stands at Teddington Hands and which was first recorded in Domesday Book.

Cutsdean

From the Vale if we travel along the B4277 up Stanway Hill we reach the most easterly villages of the Directory's circulation area. We first arrive at Ford where the road crosses the infant River Windrush. The meaning of the name here is obvious and it has remained the same since its earliest recording in 1154. Then, by following the river upstream, we reach Cutsdean where the name has far more intrigue. First recorded in 974AD as Cod's settlement or valley, the name Cod occurs earlier in 780AD as Codeswella (Cod's stream or well or spring). However, 'Cod' is another name which has never otherwise been recorded. Some scholars think it could refer to Cuda; a goddess worshipped here before the Roman invasions of 43AD. Some also believe the whole of the Cotswolds was named after this goddess, for 'Cotswold' could mean Cuda's wald or forest. On the Cotswolds we now find the landscape itself is more likely to provide the distinguishing features, rather than people. Many readers will have visited Bourton on the Water where the River Windrush makes the centre of the village so attractive. Few, if any, might realise the earliest name for the river was the Guiting brook (Gythingebroc) first recorded in 780AD and meaning a torrent or fast-flowing river. Upstream from Bourton the river gave its name to a large area of land. About 1160 some of the land was given to the Knights Templar – a religious society which had been set up to

The River Windrush near Temple Guiting

encourage soldiers to fight in the Crusades in the Holy Land. So 'Temple' Guiting gained its name, to distinguish it from the settlement a little further south near the same river. But the story behind Guiting Power will have to wait for another article. - David Aldred David Aldred is well-known through his writing and lecturing on historical subjects. He has written several books on the area, including A History of Bishop’s Cleeve and Woodmancote and The History of Cleeve Hill. He lives in Gotherington. His books can be bought in all local book stores and also online at www.amberleybooks.com or www.amazon.co.uk

New walk-in backrub First time a walk-in back rub centre opens outside of London centre opens in Dominic says he is "thrilled" CHELTENHAM to bring it to his neck of A brand new concept in massage therapy is now open in Cheltenham. Hands On walk-in backrub centre will offer people the convenience of walk-in treatments, ranging from 10 to 30 minutes. As well as not having to book, customers do not have to take their clothes off or get covered in oil as the treatments take place on a specially designed, angled upright chair.

"Hands On aims to open up massage to people who would like to have one, but who never get round to it," said owner Dominic Neate.

"It's like this technique has cherry-picked all the best bits of other massage therapies and incorporated them into one sensational experience." Situated right in the heart of Cheltenham next to the Everyman Theatre, Hands On is there for you when need to relax, de-stress and have a professional ease your cares away, whether you are in town shopping, heading to the theatre, working, in need of a rub-down after exercise or busy doing errands. Traditional treatments lasting up to one hour are also offered in separate therapy rooms and can be booked or on a walk-in basis if a therapist is available.

"All the classic reasons why people don't bother with massage are gone: you don't have to take clothes off in front of a stranger, get greasy, pay inflated prices, or even book, you simply pop in whenever you feel like it."

the woods.

The technique for the standard backrub was developed by the American David Palmer in 1986 and is based on the Amna, a 1,300-year-old traditional Japanese system of acupressure. It is designed to maximise the pleasure of the recipient in a short space of time.

Sessions usually take 20 minutes but can be adapted to 10, 15 and 30 minutes. Prices start at ÂŁ10 for the 10 minute session. The therapists at Hands On, whom Dominic says he chose for their "magic touch", will offer other therapies including deep-tissue, Shiatsu, holistic, foot rubs, reflexology, pregnancy massage, lymphatic drainage, constipation relief, etc. Specialist sessions can be booked by calling the centre on 01242 243333 or by e-mailing info@handsonbackrub.co.uk.

Finance How to make your child a millionaire Raising children costs a small fortune (it’s currently estimated at around £200,000), but if you’re clever, you could help them to become millionaires. Pensions for babies Stakeholders

Probably the easiest type of pension to take out for your child is the Stakeholder pension. Anyone is allowed to set one up which means that a child’s legal guardian(s) can start a pension for newborns. You can pay in up to £2,880 each tax year, which is then topped up by a government tax-back incentive to £3,600. You can stop and start contributions as you wish without being penalised and the minimum amount you can pay in at any time is £20. Anyone can add to it and if the full amount is paid each year, by the time the child is 55 they will have well over £700,000 and if they access the account at 70 they will have over £1.8 million. The money invested won’t be accessible until the child reaches 55 meaning they can’t blow it all when they hit 18. Once they start working, they can also contribute. They will receive tax benefits if their income is less than £130,000. You can find out more at Moneymagpie.com. There’s also a list of registered Page 12

stakeholder pension scheme providers at www. thepensionsregulator.gov.uk.

SiPPs

You can also set up a Selfinvested Personal Pension (SiPP) for your little one. Like a Stakeholder, they are open to anyone but the difference here is that you manage the money in it. So instead of leaving it to a pension fund to decide what to invest in, you choose the products yourself, whether it be shares, bonds, commercial property or other things.

Junior ISAs

ISAs are savings accounts which allow you to deposit a maximum of £3,600 a year completely tax-free, attracting interest as well. Your child has access to the money when they turn 18. Should you contribute the maximum amount each year, the fund could grow to a whopping £64,800 plus interest by the time they reach adulthood. You can choose either a cash ISA or a stocks and shares one. As your child has a good few years for the fund to grow, you could start with a stocks and shares ISA and then gradually change into cash for the last 5 to hold onto gains. The only snag with a Junior ISA is that if you were eligible for a Child Trust Fund you can’t open a Junior ISA. A good place for

further information is www. familyinvestments.co.uk.

Teaching your child about money

A sure-fire way of making your child a millionaire, or at least comfortably off, is to teach her how to manage her money early on. Start as soon as they can toddle round the supermarket with you. Ask them to tell you the numbers on the price labels and then, later, run around finding the cheapest version of what you want to buy. Give them pocket money and set up a savings account, showing them how their money can grow over time. Go to pfeg.org for downloadable financial education guides that will help. Remember, it doesn’t matter how much money your child has later on, if she knows how to live below her means and save for her future she will never be poor.

Fun fact: On average, parents are putting savings of £42.45 aside a month for each child. By Jasmine Birtles, Moneymagpie.com

Becoming a Divemaster Bernard is now realising his dream of becoming a Divemaster and has already taken his Open Water Theory Exam for the Advance Open Water course. Here Bernard is pictured being taught by Dive 90 instructor, Greg Perks, the skills which he will need in order to pass his upcoming Open Water Practical Exam. "Greg showed me how to check the equipment, and went through the practical steps of preparing yourself for a dive. I was also able to practice the signals used under water to communicate with your diving buddy, and how to keep yourself from

sinking with all the heavy equipment you carry." Next, Bernard will complete his Dry Suit Diver course to enable him to complete his open water dives in the chilly UK waters. Have a look on Dive 90's website to see what a Dry Suit Diver course invoives!

Twice Baked Cheese Souffles Makes 4

Ready in 1 hour 20 minutes

If the thought of baking a fragile cheese soufflé for a special dinner seems a little too ambitious, then think again. Baked once in advance then baked again just before serving, these delicious individual soufflés work every time. Ingredients: • 40g butter, plus extra for greasing • 40g plain flour • 225ml milk, warmed • 4 large eggs, separated • 3 tbsp fresh chopped parsley • 75g mature Cheddar cheese, grated • 75g Stilton cheese, crumbled • Salt and freshly ground black pepper • 150ml double cream • Green salad, to serve • Cayenne pepper, to sprinkle (optional)

Tip To prepare ahead, leave the soufflés to cool after the initial baking, then turn them out into the baking dish and cover with cling film. Chill in the fridge for a few hours or overnight and top with the cheese and bake for the second time just before serving. Page 18

Melt the butter in a saucepan then stir in the flour and mix with a wooden spoon to make a smooth paste. Cook over a low heat for 1 minute. Gradually whisk the milk a little at a time. Once all the milk has been added, cook over a low heat for a further 2-3 minutes, whisking continuously, until you have a smooth and thick sauce. Remove from the heat and cool for 5 minutes. Beat in the egg yolks, parsley and two-thirds of the Cheddar and Stilton. Season lightly with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4. Butter four large ramekin dishes and line the bases with circles of baking parchment. Place the egg whites in a clean, grease-free bowl and whisk until stiff. Beat one spoonful of the egg whites into the cheese sauce to loosen it slightly then gently fold the sauce into the remaining egg whites. Divide the mixture evenly between the prepared dishes. Place the dishes in a roasting tin and pour in boiling water to come halfway up the sides of the dishes. Bake for 20-25 minutes until risen and golden. Transfer the dishes to a cooling rack (the soufflés will sink a little but don’t worry). Increase the oven temperature to 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6. Turn the soufflés out into a shallow baking dish and remove the lining papers. Sprinkle over the remaining cheese and return to the oven for 15-20 minutes until piping hot and puffy. Spoon the cream over the top and bake for a further 2-3 minutes until heated through. Serve immediately with salad, sprinkled lightly with cayenne pepper, if liked.

Light Up Your Life Sensors, smartphones and serious savings

As we come into the winter, we start to need more light in our homes both day and night. There seemed little new in the lighting market for many years, but this has all changed now and from energy saving and long life to remote control, the technology has come out of the dark ages. The most obvious change in lighting is the end of incandescent bulbs and the arrival of low energy lighting. While early CFL (compact fluorescent) bulbs were pretty horrible and couldn’t be dimmed, today’s models are far nicer and can even be bought with remote controls to dim and brighten them. The big news though, is the rise of LED. Light-emitting diodes aren’t just incredibly cheap to run; because they don’t get as hot as other bulbs, they are much more versatile. They’re already a common sight in car headlamps, and you can replace most of your house’s incandescent bulbs with LEDs for relatively little cash - including halogen downlighters, which were previously difficult and expensive to replace with LEDs. Page 20

When you combine LEDs with sensors, things start getting interesting. For around £12 you can get LED motion detectors, which light up stairs and other potential hazard areas and a LED in an external motion-sensing security light will give you the same peace of mind as before without the enormous energy drain. As technology gets smaller and cheaper, it also gets smarter. Wouldn’t it be great if your lighting linked in to your wireless network and could be controlled by your phone? That’s already available: Philips’ Hue lightbulbs do just that, enabling you to change both brightness and colours - so you might use a gently brightening yellow glow to wake you in the morning, or point at a photo to get the lighting to match its colours. It’ll be a while before such technology is every day affordable though - a starter pack will currently set you back £179 for one controller and three bulbs - but it’s still quite exciting. Another exciting idea is Wemo, Belkin’s wireless technology for home automation. You can already buy Wemo-enabled

plugs, and now you can buy Wemo-enabled light switches. Once again it isn’t cheap - expect to pay around £39.99 for a light switch and the same for a plug socket that you can use to control table lamps - but the technology is interesting: you can combine Wemo with the “If This Then That” web service, so for example you could add a motion detector to switch on the hall light when you open the front door or get the light switch to activate at sunset each evening. If you like the idea of motion sensors, light sensors or timers for your lighting but would rather not shell out for expensive smartphoneconnected kit, you don’t have to: a simple but effective motion and sound-sensing light switch will set you back less than £10, an electronic timer light switch will cost less than £10 and one with a built-in sensor will only cost a few pounds more. The smartphone-compatible hardware may have the wow factor, but lower-tech options won’t give your wallet the “ow” factor. By Gary Marshall

Climbing Plants Climbing plants, especially those with flamboyant flowers or fantastic foliage can transform a garden and offer a whole new planting opportunity, as your garden literally goes upwards and takes a vertical climb.

by Pippa Greenwood

Supporting Cast A few climbers are self-clingers and don’t need a special support system when grown against a fence or wall; Virginia creeper and Hydrangea petiolaris for instance. But most need to have a proper support, and it pays to put this in place before you plant. For lighter weight climbers some trellis, perhaps prettily painted will do the trick, but for heavier climbers such as a vigorous clematis, or wisteria, you will need galvanised straining wires. Easy Access If you use trellis as a support on a wall, it can be attached to wooden battens which are fixed to the wall using rawl plugs. Use a series of hinges to attach one edge of the trellis to the batten, and a few hooks to allow you to raise or lower the trellis for when you need to maintain the wall. Planting Distance Climbers won’t thrive if they don’t receive enough water at the base. The ‘rain shadow’ created by the house roof and the drying effect of the wall’s foundations can make the soil close-by extremely dry so plant a minimum of 45cm (18in) away from the base of the wall and fork in plenty of well-rotted bulky organic matter before planting too. Train it well If the climber is quite small, it may need to be trained in the right direction. A short bamboo Page 26

cane or several for a multistemmed plant, can be angled from the base of the plant to the vertical surface, allowing you to tie in the stems and edge them towards the support. Once the climber has reached the wall, the enlarging network of stems may become congested if left to its own devices, so actively train the stems to grow in the direction you need them to.

Ten Top Climbers Climbing roses Honeysuckle Clematis Hydrangea petiolaris Vitis coignetiae Solanum crispum Tropaeolum speciosum Akebia quinata Actinidia kolomikta Parthenocissus henryana Extra Care Climbers planted against a wall will need extra TLC if they’re to look their best. Make watering them top-priority, especially for the first 18 months whilst they’re becoming established. Apply a good, bulky organic mulch to a depth of about 8cm (3in) or so all around the rooting area, but take care to avoid the mulch coming in to direct contact with the stems.

Arches, Arbours and Pergolas Climbers don’t just look good on house, garden and garage walls and fences, they can also be used to great effect over arches and pergolas or to clothe an arbour. You may need to install some supporting wires here too, so go for galvanised wires and sturdy vine-eyes as fixings. Choosing a scented climber or two will add to the charm of a cosy arbour or archway. Clever Combinations If the surface that you want to plant up is big enough, try to use climbers that flower in different seasons as, chosen carefully, the plants you use will increase the period for which the arch, pergola, arbour, wall or fence, looks its best. Bare Ankles Many climbers do have a habit of becoming a bit bare at the base, especially after they’ve been in place for a few years. Try some seasonal bedding plants around the base, or plant a small and attractive shrub a little further away to hide the bare stems.

Textures For Interiors The way a space feels is just as important as the way it looks. Interiors expert Katherine Sorrell reveals how an imaginative use of different surfaces can make an impact in your home. By Katherine Sorrell Colours and patterns may be the first things you notice when you walk into a room, but spend any time in it and the textures become increasingly important. Not only is the right surface in the right area a functional necessity, but an appreciation of texture also enables us to relate to our surroundings in a direct and sensual way, making us feel comfortably and securely at home. Textures, in short, bring a room to life and make a house a home. Underpinning every design scheme, textures relate to just about every aspect of a room, from size and lighting to colour schemes and style. Consider this aspect of room design as layering one texture with another (floor, walls, upholstery and window treatments are the basics), then adding touches of one or two more (cushions, lamps, vases, rugs and so on). At first the concept may sound challenging, but it will soon come entirely naturally. Start with key areas – upholstery or loose covers in a fabric that’s neither so shiny and slippery that you slide off it the moment you sit down, nor so rough that Page 32

it’s uncomfortable and snags instantly. Curtains that draw easily, worktops that are tough and durable, floorboards that can be cleaned easily. If you wanted to bring out the cosiness of a small bedroom, say, you could combine a fluffy rug, matt-painted walls, velvet curtains and chintzy quilts. Or, to emphasise a bright and airy living room, the main features might be varnished floorboards, glossy white woodwork, sheer curtains and glass or chrome lamp bases. The aim is to achieve pleasing contrasts rather than clashes, so avoid too many unusual, eyecatching textures in one space. Texture has an important part to play in the overall style of a room. Modern rooms tend to be feature harder, shinier surfaces, whereas a vintage or ethnic look is more rustic and varied in texture. You only have to think of the contrast between a contemporary room that features lots of stainless steel, chrome and mirror, with a more nostalgic room that contains quilts, knitting, embroidery and lace, to understand how important texture is in setting a scene. Using understated colour

schemes and simple patterns allows textures to speak for themselves. This is where a palette of neutrals comes to the fore – just think of the beautiful, natural hues of sisal, shell, stone or wicker. A dash of brightness may add a focal point, but the subtlety is in the surfaces themselves. Lastly, remember that good lighting shows off textures to their best advantage. Try to pick out interesting features and highlight them with uplighters, spotlights or angled lamps placed appropriately. Once you have grasped the basic principles of using texture, you can incorporate all sorts of different elements: distressed or varnished wood, woven willow, worn stone, foxed mirror, distressed leather, fake fur, buttons, raffia and crochet, to name but a few. Textural possibilities are endless and, with just a little effort, you can achieve a look that is individual, intriguing and truly remarkable.

The Life List Halloween Habits Childhood, as I recall, was marked by annual traditions - there was Christmas, New Year, Easter, the long, glorious summer break from school, and finally Halloween. When you’re an adult, it can seem like it’s only for the kids now, but those Halloween habits are still just as relevant when viewed from another angle. 1. Trick or Treat - strictly speaking, for grown-ups, this now comes with the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement in November. And sadly, if you are a saver, there are usually few treats. 2. Bobbing for apples - a great way to test your teeth and gums. The winner is the person who finds an apple that has not been grown in a poly tunnel and which actually tastes of apple.

3. Bonfires - this ancient ritual involves sacrificing pallets and old furniture in order to undercook or cremate baked potatoes. No one really knows why. 4. Shops selling Christmas cards (to be fair they’ve probably been doing this since September and the Valentine cards are already in storage). 5. Carving pumpkins into lanterns - a great way to scare away your neighbour’s children. Often combined with sitting in the back room in the dark - a great way to save on electricity. 6. Telling scary stories - these often involve hospital visits, the car’s annual service, that last holiday where one of you was nearly caught short or the perils of online dating. 7. Watching scary films - anything 3D without the glasses (although it’s often more blurry than scary). © Derek Thompson www.alongthewritelines.blogspot.com

The Better Life No Ifs or Butts

There are two things you can say with confidence, where we live. Firstly, that it rains - a lot. Secondly, if you don’t like the weather, just give it half an hour and then there might be something along that’s more to your taste. If, like us, you’re keen on becoming more green, having a water butt is a must. Otherwise, you’re literally tipping a valuable resource down the drain. Our problem has always been the layout of the garden. Well, that and my feebleness at lugging watering cans around. But Anne, who uses the Internet for research rather than Twitter, found a solution. “This water butt,” she declared, pointing at the screen, “will fill other water butts for us - and wherever we want to place them.” I must have made a ‘wow’ face because Anne immediately nodded sagely in my Page 36

direction. Our Rainwater Hub arrived a few days later in the post. (Anne had, of course, ordered it before showing me, to save time.) After I’d prowled around it a couple of times, we agreed to let our neighbour put it up, so that it was done properly. To be fair, the instructions were easypeasy, only I’m known to be drilly-silly. The neighbour popped over in the week, looked over the paperwork and scratched his head. “Are you sure it goes up on the wall?” “Of course,” I replied with my rehearsed answer, “it’s a gravity fed system.” Now it was his turn to make a ‘wow’ face and he didn’t disappoint. I left him to it and went off to make some kindling - because every man likes to feel useful. Half an hour later, the Rainwater Hub was installed and connected by a hose to water butt number two. The next day it absolutely poured down and, after a little trial and error (the error being that I hadn’t read the butt connection instructions properly - too busy sniggering), I checked the online video and soon everything was in place. The hub and our three water butts were duly named John, Paul, George and Ringo. Collectively: The Buttles. The whole system is, in effect, one giant water butt, only

it’s spaced out around the garden. Now for the first time, we can also use rainwater, from the hub’s second tap, for the indoor plants in the conservatory; great news for us, the sweet peppers and the chillies, as we’re on a water meter. The cat was curious about all the garden hoses, but soon went back to stalking the frog that Anne discovered in the damp ground behind the monbretia. Being able to harvest this much rain also means we can wash the car for free, should I ever get round to it. It’s on my list, along with growing kale beside the perpetual chard and trying a small lemon tree in the conservatory. Our handyman neighbour has already been back to see the hub in action, and to see the storage capacity of the system. He dropped hints about us renaming John in his honour. However, as he’s not named George (as in Martin), Pete (as in Best), or Stuart (as in Sutcliffe), that’s pretty unlikely. Mind you, there’s always the possibility of adding another Buttle to the band! Derek Thompson is a writer and humourist based in the West Country.

Around Britain 5 Raids & Invasions 1. The Channel Islands - The Channel Islands were the only part of the Commonwealth occupied by Germany during the Second World War. On June 30 1940, two weeks after the government demilitarised the islands, Germany invaded and took control of Guernsey, then Jersey, Alderney (where they built four concentration camps), and lastly Sark on July 4. The occupation lasted five years. 2. Deal, Kent - In 1495, a pretender to the throne named Perkin Warbeck landed at Deal to summon up support for his claim to the throne by alleging that he was one of the Princes in the Tower, whose disappearance led to the accession of Richard III. Warbeck’s invasion, however, was scuppered and after a second attempt in 1497 he was imprisoned and executed. 3. The Isle of Wight - In 1377, at the height of the Hundred Years’ War, the French launched a series of attacks along the English Channel and invaded the Isle of Wight, seizing town after town en route to Carisbrooke Castle. The castle remained impenetrable, however, and after a lengthy siege the French eventually abandoned the island. 4. Lindisfarne, Northumberland - Lindisfarne was attacked in what is considered to be the first Viking raid on the English coast in 793. Not as rampageous as later attacks, it nevertheless left much of the island’s 7th century priory desecrated. Viking raids continued for more than two centuries. 5. Pevensey, East Sussex - It was at Pevensey that William the Conqueror – then William, Duke of Normandy – first landed in England in 1066, one month before the Battle of Hastings. The Battle lasted more than nine hours, William eventually overcoming Harold’s exhausted army, killing Harold and taking the throne. © Taken from The British Isles: A Trivia Gazetteer by Paul Anthony Jones, out now.

Nothing To Be Afraid Of

The Shining Stephen King For Jack Torrance, taking a new job as caretaker at the remote Overlook Hotel is far from the fresh start he’s hoping for. Off-season at a deserted hotel means a playground for madness, leaving Jack and his unsuspecting family isolated and in danger. Five year old Danny Torrance is the only one who can sense the horrors to come. He’s gifted with ‘the shining’, a sort of sixthsense for the sinister and the threatening. As the snow begins to fall, the curtain of madness descends. The Day of the Triffids John Wyndham Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the garden… If you’ve ever hated that ‘morning after the night before’ feeling then Bill Masen is having the day from hell. He misses a major meteorite shower because his eyes have been bandaged, but the next morning is far from a sight for sore eyes. He wakes to find everyone else has been blinded and the world has become a postapocalyptic nightmare. Written in a time rife with Cold War paranoia, Wyndham’s vision of bio-warfare has made this a science fiction classic.

If you don’t open your door to trick-or-treaters, try opening up a book with a terrifying plotline. There are plenty of great novels and short stories to start your knees knocking and teeth chattering for this time of year…

The Enemy Charlie Higson Your teenagers will either love this book, or it’ll terrify the pants off them. In a postapocalyptic London, all adults have been infected with a sickness, effectively rendering them zombies. They’re hungry and crazed and are running amuck in the capital, leaving everyone under fourteen who have survived the zombie virus to either find a place to hide, or come up with a plan to defeat them. It’s the first in an absolutely cracking series. Just don’t make it your bedtime reading. The Best Short Stories of Edgar Allan Poe Edgar Allen Poe The master of gothic horror, Poe doesn’t fail to send a chill down even the most rigid of spines. He has perfected the art of the psychological thriller with his tales of lunatics, ghosts and murderers all riddled with the human characteristics of jealousy, deviousness, lust for revenge and sometimes just pure hatred. Whether it’s the ‘da-dum, da-dum’ of ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’ or the haunting refrain of ‘The Raven’, his tales of terror will crawl inside your head, make a little nest, and stay there…until you’re just about to nod off to sleep.

1984 George Orwell. ‘Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past’. Winston Smith works in the Record Department at the Ministry of Truth and is beavering away rewriting history to manipulate the present and future. Under the watchful eye of Big Brother, Winston secretly plots to overthrow the totalitarian regime. He’s going to need an ally and he thinks he’s found it in the form of new love, fellow-worker Julia. One of the most influential books ever written, Orwell’s dystopian vision has spawned many an imitator and many a reality TV show. Oh, the irony. American Psycho Bret Easton Ellis If this book teaches you one lesson, it’s to screen people thoroughly because even the handsome ones can be absolute nutters. Enter Patrick Bateman: Wall Street yuppie by day and psychopathic serial killer of young ladies by night. Let’s just say, he has a lot of nasty habits he wouldn’t want to list on his dating profile…and they’re all described in graphic detail for us. Proof that the devil takes many pleasing guises.
