THE QUIET ONE offers a unique, never before revealed and behind the- scenes look at the highs and lows of the life and career of Bill Wyman, former founding member of the Rolling Stones and renaissance man of rock and roll. Throughout his life Bill shot hours of “unseen” film footage, took thousands of photographs and collected a vast archive of memorabilia. Bill also kept a detailed diary to accompany these treasures. The film uses this private, one of a kind, collection alongside interviews with Bill’s family and friends to take the audience on a first-hand journey of Bill’s life. Exploring his childhood in the war, the golden age of rock & roll and life in the present day, these are the experiences and stories of an amusing, engaging and down-to-earth man often simply called ‘The Quiet One’. This phenomenal archive has never been available to filmmakers before.

  • The Curse of Tenth Grave

    By Darynda Jones

    Signed Hardcover

    As a Part-time PI and fulltime grim reaper, Charley Davidson has asked a lot of questions throughout her life: Why can I see dead people? Who is the hot supernatural entity following me? How do I get gum out of my sister’s hair before she wakes up? But, “How do I trap not one malevolent god, but three?” was never among them. Until now. And since those gods are on earth to kill her daughter, she has little choice but to track them down, trap them, and cast them from this dimension.
