Box 010 Number 10: Results, Michael Cargill

This week’s special guest was Michael Cargill, who writes all sorts of stuff because he hasn’t stuck to any particular genre. His latest work, Underneath, has been compared to Ruth Rendell – but he also likes writing humour and satire, as we’ve discovered. You can find more of that on his website here .

So Michael, ladies and gentlemen. I bet you’re absolutely ganting to know how the vote went. Quite well as it turns out.

Michael, thanks to your fine efforts, the world is no longer doomed to suffer the existence of the following three things:

  1. Three-quarter length trouser-short things
    That’s me buggered, everyone will have to see my giant swollen knees now but a promise is a promise. In they go.
  2. Poo
    Congratulations everyone. Although I’m not sure what the monkeys in the zoo will fling now.
  3. Audiophiles
    I like a good stereo as much as the next person but yes, there are limits.

Michael, thank you for joining me in Box 010. Now everyone, off you go and buy his book, Underneath!

Oh and in case you’d forgotten here’s where you can stalk Michael Cargill on the internet.

Box 010 Results: Number 9, Lynda Wilcox

Hello Ladies, Gentlemen, those who aren’t quite sure and, of course K’Barthans. This weeks’ guest on Box 010 was Lynda Wilcox writer of the children’s adventure books and light hearted whodunits, the latest of which, Strictly Murder.  You can find her website here .

Right I hope you’re sitting comfortably, here are the results…

Lynda, you got a fine and dandy 3 items into Box o10 and they are.

  1. Rude people/the current trend for rudeness
    Excellent, next time someone’s rude to me I can just stick my fingers in my ears and shout, ‘la la la I can’t hear you from Box o1o.’
  2. Texting and mobile phones
    Because they all deserve to walk into lamp posts
  3. Council Speak and the way they waste money
    Yes! In it goes.

Lynda thank you for joining us on Box 010.

Ladies and gents there will be a slight hiatus now as it ‘s the school holidays and I’m afraid I have to turn into Mumzilla for 6 weeks but Box 010 will be back in September… unless I do a rogue one in the middle of August.
