This book describes 40 fictional Sports. This should give you something to smile about when you’re at home longing for a little bit of escapism.
The Sports include:
The Dracula Race in Romania. Here contestants have to run around Sighisoara before cycling to Bran Castle and cook kebabs on the way.
Mongol Vegetable Chopping from Russia. Participants have to chop vegetables whilst riding along on horseback.
Curling Pool from the USA. Here the players have to score points, by trying to ricochet their curling stones into depressions in the ice.
All the stories are individual and distinct and can be read independently if necessary; a book for the busy individual who perhaps has five minutes to spare to understand the complexities of Bull Pulling or Unicycle Volleyball.
Bio: I am a writer. I love writing creatively especially about subjects such as British traditions, where my made-up traditions are no less ridiculous than the real thing. A list of my books, both fictional and factual (about travel), can be found here.
Julian was born in Leicester, attended school in Yorkshire, and university in Liverpool.
He has been to 94 countries and territories and intends to make the 100 when travel is easier.
He writes travel books, murder / mysteries and absurd fiction.
His sense of humour is distilled from The Marx Brothers, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders.
His latest book is about a Buddhist cat who tries to help his squirrel friend fly further from a children's slide.
