    'Blackly humorous, utterly un-PC, Robert G. Barrett revels in being controversial and contrary. He's a true original and is much loved by his many thousands of readers.

    'This year is the 25th anniversary of the publication of the first Les Norton novel and to celebrate we are releasing the first new material from Bob in two years. First published in 1996, Rider on the Storm was a collection of Les Norton short stories and articles by Bob on subjects as wide-ranging as acting, dating, getting the dole and being famous. It is described by Abe Books as "one of the author′s more scarce titles".

    'We are now reissuing it with updated and extra new material, as Still Riding on the Storm. As well as a new introduction to explain the book to Bob's readers, there are two new Les Norton stories and he is also writing an article about the last few years of his life and his battle with cancer -- but in his inimitable, unselfpitying style! It′s looking like Bob′s finally beating the illness, and his "cure for cancer" will surprise many ...' (From the publisher's website.)
