From Magic Localism to post-regionalist eco-apocalypse realism, from materialist anti-irrationality to the livin' end of punk rock mythology, from collective identities to utter individualism, from alienation to belonging, from Cambridge Royal Mail sorting office to Hove public library, the stories collected together in Place Explosion describe the fistula between knowledge and consciousness that has emerged in this totally precedented era of total control. With obsessive focus, Neil Palmer's stories travel beyond the exo-political world of ideas and narrate the deterioration of the life of the mind of a self-taught intellectual in the aftermath of a late-20th century university education - a waste land become an investment opportunity, where inspiration is viewed as an unwanted irrational intervention, or at least willful ignorance, and idealism is cast as dumb insolence. Place Explosion delves deep into the unlucky dip of popular culture in the long late-20th century, drags out its most enduring archetypes and ciphers - politics, identity, culture and the weird ? and makes them sing and dance for their very existence.

In the uptight world of the London media elite, even the opening of a new exhibition of Prison Art is regarded as an exciting adventure. Senses dulled and out of his depth in the face of an unfolding story of the real elite - the one that wields the real power - Bryn Nolan rouses himself from his cocoon of self-confidence and rises to a challenge that only he, London's premier public relations operator, can overcome. The wild valleys and mountains of the Caucasus and the even wilder alleys and concrete rifts of the London landscape collide in this meticulously researched novel of high adventure happening elsewhere to other people, while the urban-exiled narrator finds himself embroiled in his own grave drama, picking up the loose threads of distant hazard that lead inexorably to his home town. Nolan quickly discovers that in time of danger the tale becomes the truth, spurious anecdote becomes fact, and plausibility itself becomes a vehicle for transmutation.

Welsh football legend Trevor Ford was not your typical football player from the forties and fifties. In a era where football club owners held all the cards, and were more than happy with the GBP20-a-week maximum wage given to the game's stars, Ford was a man who knew his own worth and challenged the status quo. A fearsome centre-forward loved by the fans he played for, and a villain to the opposition, he filled stadiums and ruffled a few feathers on and off the pitch. Born in Swansea in 1923, Ford played for Swansea Town, spent three seasons as Aston Villa's top scorer, and in a debut for Sunderland against Sheffield Wednesday, scored a hat-trick, broke the opposing centre-half 's jaw, charged the Wednesday ,keeper into the net and broke a goalpost. Returning to his native Wales in 1953 to join Cardiff City, he was banned from the game for two years after admitting receiving illegal payments while at Sunderland. Ford left the Welsh capital in 1957 after more run-ins with Cardiff manager Trevor Morris. He then joined PSV Eindhoven in Holland as his two-year ban from the British game kicked in, which may have led to his exclusion from the Welsh World Cup squad of 1958. Join author Neil Palmer as he details the career of a man whose goal tally was 175 goals in 349 games, scoring 23 goals for Wales in 38 appearances, making him Wales's second highest goalscorer of all time.
