Speaking about…

In native Boltonian Mark Cox’s debut novel, The Wanderer, he prefaces the work by saying:  “The town of Bolton had always been known as a place of growing stature and reputation that had become the target of ridicule and rumour from the capital, which had taken the up and coming town as a threat to their dominance over all.” Naturally, the genre in which he writes is that of science fiction.
