8 August 1963; a railway track in Buckinghamshire. The moon shines clearly over Bruce Reynolds and sixteen other men robbing a train of its sacks of money. The Great Train Robbery has entered British folklore as one of the most audacious and extraordinary crimes of the twentieth century. The haul £2,631,684 - is, in todays money, a staggering £26 million. Bruce Reynolds, the leader of the gang, was sentenced to 25 years in prison; even the Commissioner of the Met, Sir Robert Mark, thought that excessive. On its first publication in 1995 Bruce Reynolds autobiography was widely acclaimed and it is now regarded as a classic in the true crime genre. Now reissued with a new introduction and final chapter, the story is brought up to date to include the return of Ronnis Biggs to the UK, the deaths of Buster Edwards, Roy James and Taters Chatham and the continuing story of Reynolds life since his release from jail, as well as dozens of previously unseen photographs.

What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare?' (LEISURE BY W.H. DAVIES) Loneliness and criminality determined William Henry Davies’ childhood and teenage-years. At the age of 22 he decided to leave Wales for America to chance his luck abroad. But getting there was not as easy as expected. At that point in time, he became a tramp. In his best-known work THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A SUPER-TRAMP, Davies tells the story of his lifetime. He explains in a very intimate and touching way what it is like to grow up in Great Britain at the end of the 19th century. Furthermore, he describes how he felt during his vagabond life and what made him settle back in the UK. After all, Davies develops into the most popular poet of his time.
