“In Dead Men’s Teeth and Other Stories Jamie Rhodes has mined and minted gold from the British Library Archives. Inspired by sources as various as a ship’s surgeon’s log, verbatim interviews, diaries or even advertisements for false teeth, Rhodes gives us glimpses into unexpected places, the forgotten corners of history, in stories told with the authentic weirdness of truth; touching, quirky and humane.”
“An utterly charming delight, snapshots of British history viewed through the people who have lived in and around this castle for almost seven hundred years, a reminder, if one be needed, that these magnificent structures are more than just our architectural heritage… this is a lovely and unusual addition to British comics shelves, and a charming read for both those well-versed in history and those who are only dipping their toes in, curious to know more.” – Forbidden Planet (read full review here).
“Jamie has an infectious love of words and a belief that as an aspiring author you can do better. He is a gentle force that keeps you focused on what you can achieve and the kind of mentor that pushes you to succeed.” – Lainy Malkani, author (Sugar, Sugar: Bitter Sweet Tales of Indian Migrant Workers. 2017)
