Hi, I’m Charles Sarland. Welcome to my website.

A little more about me: I am also a ‘serious academic’ (retired!) and I’m interested in children’s literature in general so if you click on ‘Children’s Literature’ you’ll also find an essay about Masterman Ready and several chapters of a book that I am working on about the discourses of children’s literature, and which I am loading as I write them (very slowly!)
Also on the website is a self help ‘do it yourself’ Guide to English Grammar: Grammar: The Naming of Parts which I wrote when I was an education lecturer. Click on ‘Grammar Workbook’ to find out more

ART & CREW The book they wouldn’t publish!!!
A mystery thriller for kids! Blood spurts when Art smashes the children’s home bully on the nose, blood that will start a chain of events that even Art hadn’t predicted. In the meantime there’s a show to be put on for the other kids, and it needs to be a rude as possible! But when someone goes missing things start to get serious. Will Art and his mates be able to find them and to rescue them from the villains? Will he survive his encounter with the racing blade of a vicious saw or will it shred him to pieces??? Find out by reading ART & CREW. It’s the book they wouldn’t publish! Adults will hate it, kids will love it! It’s exciting! It’s suspenseful! It’s hilarious! It’s sexy! It’s extremely rude!
“Give them back!” yelled Art as he ran, stark naked, across the dormitory floor. Colin Sneerswell, the children’s home bully, held Art’s pyjama trousers up in the air, taunting him.
“Come and get them, Blackie!” he yelled, and ran out of the door. Art chased him out into the corridor.
“Come back, the girls’ll see you,” shouted Jamie, one of the other boys, but Art was too angry to care. Colin raced down the corridor and into the loo. By the time Art got there he was locked in one of the cubicles.
“Come and get me, Blackie,” he taunted, and Art battered on the loo door.
“Give them back here you bastard!” he yelled . . .

ALCHESTER VAMPIRE Horror! Blood! Slaughter!
It started with the cat, soon it was the humans, as blood bespattered bodies started to pile up! Who, or what was doing it? As their college friends get slaughtered, Anne-Marie and her boyfriend Jimmy need to find out. When will it be their turn? How many more people must die before they discover the truth? Will it ever be safe to go out in the dark again?
The cat slunk along the edge of the field, keeping close to the ground, low, every sense finely tuned. It had been in a fight, that much was evident. It was covered in blood. One ear was torn. Patches of fur were missing. All the cat knew was that it must get away from that ‘thing’ out there, the thing that had attacked it. It was a miracle the cat had ever got away at all. Now it needed to get back home, to get some milk and to recover. But at the same time it could feel the thing calling to it, calling it back to finish the fight, and it was an irresistible call. It couldn’t be ignored. The cat knew that whatever it was out there was evil, utterly evil. But it had invaded the cat’s territory and it had to be challenged, it must be fought. Even if it meant a fight to the death! * * * * * * * * Alchester was a small country town. Its only claim to fame was a huge white horse carved on one of the hills that overlooked the town from the north. Otherwise it had nothing of interest to offer, and nothing very much ever happened there . . .
