For Readers

We are delighted to be presenting a series of digital samplers featuring extracts from our 2024 finalist books for your reading enjoyment, and hopefully to entice you to go out and buy the books or loan them from your local library. The Ockhams Samplers will be loaded here as they become available after 6 March, so keep an eye out for them.
