Reading Group Guides

Sandman Reading Groups' Guide

If you are a member of a reading group and would like to select 'Sandman' as a novel for study, please click here.

Sandman is very much a character study, and the Sandman Reading Groups' Guide will include focus on the characters, the representation of their different points-of-view (POV), why particular characters are chosen as POV characters, the nature of the different characters, genre, relationships, structure, scene-setting, sense of place. It includes both questions for general discussion and in-depth discussion. How you use this guide is entirely flexible.

Sandman Creative Writing Notes

If you are a creative writing student you might find these notes helpful since they include lengthy examples of different aspects of style. Please click here to see them.

These notes cover: 'show not tell' — and why you might sometimes break the rule; pace; dialogue; changing voice with point-of-view.

Flying a Kite Reading Groups' Guide

If you are a member of a reading group and would like to select 'Flying a Kite' as a novel for study, please click here.

'Flying a Kite' is a most unusual novel in that its characters are involved in a really detailed quest. It includes character studies perhaps even deeper than those in 'Sandman', and the reading groups' guide will include focus on the characters, the representation of their different points-of-view (POV), why particular characters are chosen as POV characters, the nature of the different characters, genre, relationships, structure, scene-setting, sense of place. It includes both questions for general discussion and in-depth discussion. How you use this guide is entirely flexible.

"The most abstract of concepts are communicated in a clearly digestible form… There is a tremendous need for the genre represented here: arguments which transcend the physical world. For many, if not most, the task of adequately preparing oneself to respond to such questions is simply too daunting. I appreciate the scholarly professionalism and the extensive referencing… [The author] rises to the challenge of what most would consider an extremely difficult calling." (James Revoir - Authonomy)


"This is a very intriguing piece. I believe there is a significant demand for such discussions... I especially appreciate the inviting style, which will definitely be a plus for more skeptical readers." (Faith Rose - Authonomy)


"The survey of arguments both for and against the existence of God provides the reader with a way to better compare and contrast different viewpoints… Presenting the strengths and weaknesses of all of these different viewpoints was one of the things I liked most. I was really interested to read these chapters because, as a mathematician and a Christian, while there may be perceived conflicts between science and religion, I believe there are no conflicts between the structures and systems of the universe and God. This book also explains things very well… [and is] accessible without sacrificing scientific integrity… I think the book will be enjoyed by many and will encourage lively discussion." (David Bortress - Authonomy)


"Extremely well written, researched and set out. Every point is very clear. The analogies are extremely imaginative and very effective. The passion in this work is powerful and every paragraph is thought provoking. The arguments are well thought through and persuasive... I would suggest that everyone reads it and think very carefully about what you say." (Gareth Naylor - Authonomy)


"'Reality Check' is an interesting and accessible book... that sets up the basic argument well, an intriguing one at that: proof of God in brain and mind being two different things, mind existing beyond the time-space continuum. At this stage my interest was piqued. I haven’t come across an argument like this before so it appears original... I was entertained and informed along the way and feel richer for the debate. Anyone interested in these themes would do well to have a read of 'Reality Check'." (Ross Clark - Authonomy)


"This is one hell of a book, excuse the pun; and so well researched, and the thoughts are radical on this matter... [the] Albert Einstein line, very relevant to-day and very much relates to what you have written... I was totally intrigued... and found it to be very informative." (Tom Bye - Authonomy)
