There is man chained to a book. Or, perhaps, it is a book chained to a man?


It is a book full of stories. The most terrible and wonderful stories you will ever hear. Stories of misery and monsters, of capitated heads becoming UNcapitated heads and of people who – despite all appearances to the contrary – were dead ALL ALONG.


His name is Hector Kreeping and this is his Book of Despair. Dare you hear what’s written within?


An hour of rib-tickling and spine-chilling comedy spoken-word from the slightly cracked mind of Tom Moore.
