2011 Awards

The annual Best Of awards for last year (in my opinion) are...



Best book (that I've read) : Ian Rankin - Let it bleed

I spent the year reading the whole Rebus series so one of them had to win... This one is certainly one of the best.


Best Scouse complied anthology of more than 37 short stories: Off the Record by Luca Veste

There could only be one winner... Click here to see what the fuss is about and also for details of a huge competition.


Best short story : AJ Hayes’s Small Separations at Shotgun Honey

Chilling, concise and very memorable read it here.


Best collection of short stories : Julie Morrigan’s Gone Bad

Fab collection of dark and wonderful shorts. Buy it here.


Best Takeaway menu typo : My local kebab/pizza shop

Nun bread - Either it's an ecclesiastical delight or they've misspelt Nan bread. No picture I'm afraid but here's something similar I found. (Number 9's the good bit)

























Best Road Sign :
















That's all. Back with another old man rant early next week.

Luca - Trophy eh? Maybe next year...

Sean - Thanks for popping by. Best of luck to you as well this year.

Charlie Wade said...

Here's one I forgot to include...

Best Search Term used to reach this site:

Cable Ties He Was Helpless

Yep, it scared me too.

Kym Hamer said...

Love the sign! Welcome back

Charlie Wade said...

Thanks Kym. Yeah, I think the sign's a roadside equivalent of a snake eating itself.
