DISTURBING BEDTIME TALES (FOR VERY BAD PEOPLE)

Disturbing Bedtime Tales is an anthology that takes the medium of the fairytale and fable to new dimensions of dark and twisted, comedic surrealism. From the story of Brasnips the Pisswitch, who terrorises a village by slashing on its vegetable yield, to the fable of The Chronic Arsetronaut, the first sexist man in outer space, these fragmented parables will leave you wide-eyed and wondering if there really is a God. The Liar, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Angels of the Garden Shed and Wee Willy Knicker-Sniffer are the cautionary tales the Brothers Grimm nearly wrote but thought better of and the ideas Hans Christians Anderson dismissed as the onset of madness. Enjoy. And… unpleasant dreams.

REVIEWS

horrorunlimited.com
This is a collection of short stories that is not only very funny despite it's vulgarity but because of it. The more astute reader will soon realize that there is in fact some very clever writing here when you look below the surface, which given Dean Wilkinson's credible and experienced writing background in books, games and television is not surprising.

As I said, Shakespeare it isn't... but I'm sure Henry IV and Macbeth would have been markedly different if the bard had read these tales beforehand. If you have the energy for a four hour long snigger punctuated with bouts of rib cracking, hernia inducing laughter then I heartily recommend it! 

THE LEGEND OF ARTHUR KING

It's an ordinary day for Arthur - he's just faked a heart attack to get out of Maths and is contemplating the beauty of Gwen Lott. But a glimpse of her bra strap sets off a chain of events that reveals that Arthur's so far rather pitiful life is far from ordinary. He and his new (only) friend Lawrence are about to discover that they are the spirit of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table reborn. Our noble heroes must save Albion Wood and a rare species of 'white bird fingies' from destruction. God's swimming trunks, are they up to the challenge?

ARTHUR KING AND THE CURIOUS CASE OF THE TIME TRAIN

There're odd things afoot in Thornaby, again. Rips in the very fabric of time are leaving bewildered people hours out of sync with their lives, and Lawrence gets mugged by cavemen. Then there's the strange nightly rumblings beneath the town - some say it's the sound of a ghost train. More importantly, for Arthur at least, is the fact that he still hasn't got off with Gwen. Arthur and Lawrence embark on an adventure more perplexing than any of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson's - can their detective ancestry (or something) help them crack the case?

SARKYLOCKS AND THE THREE BEARS

It’d be a very boring world if we were all exactly the same, and one young girl finds that out in this hilarious new take on the classic fairy tale.

Sarkylocks comes to realise that it’s wrong to lower someone’s self esteem by making jokes about them just because they’re different to what you think people should be like.

Sarky learns that differences are to be celebrated, and you yourself will feel a lot happier and more confident if you make someone else feel the same way. One nice word is worth a million nasty ones.

THE TEES BALLY FIBBER - VOLUME 1

Foreword by Harry Hill

The choicest cuts from the now defunct spoof news website The Tees Bally Fibber, entirely written by Dean. The website ran for 6 years and with headlines like…

‘CYCLISTS WHO WEAR LYCRA DESERVE TO BE KNOCKED OFF SAYS TOP COP’ 

‘STRICKEN FERRY OFFLOADS CARGO OF AUSTRIAN NUNS.’

‘BONES OF CHARLIE CHAPLIN FOUND IN KEBAB’

‘DOGS THAT DON’T KILL CATS ARE HOMOS SAYS VET’

…it was always alive with controversy and silliness. It caught the attention of the great and the good and top TV funny man Harry Hill offered to write a foreword for it.
