This is our story: a story of how two ordinary people live with the diagnosis, the check-ups, the disappointments, the relief, the questions, the answers, the operations, the recovery, the emergencies, the denial, the acceptance, the anger, the pain, the loss, the love, the fear, the frustration - and the happiness.'

- Paperback - Mainstream Publishing
At the height of the hedonistic 1990s rave era, Steven McLaughlin policed some of Blackpool's most dangerous and chaotic clubs as the virulent dance and drug craze exploded onto the scene. From clubland's front line, he recognised the menace lurking beneath the pilled-up clubbers and smiley-face T-shirts, witnessing door wars, gang grudges and ever-present drug dealers in the dark underbelly of club culture. He saw people revel in it; he saw people profit from it; and he saw people die as a result of it.
Callander & Oban Railway Through Time
- Paperback - Amberley
Construction on the Callander and Oban Railway began in 1866, although the line itself didn't open until 1880. Designed to link Callander, near Stirling, with the west coast port of Oban, the line was never profitable although Oban developed as a fashionable resort after the arrival of the railway. Although the section of line between Crianlarich and Oban remains open as part of the West Highland Line, the eastern section between Callander and Crianlarich closed following a landslide in September 1965. In this book, Ewan Crawford uses a mixture of old and new photographs to recall the history of the line.
