Stephen Peter Oldham is relatively new to the poetry scene. In his first book, he explores the issues facing ‘Modern Man’ through poetry, muse and stories in his original style of ‘Real Fiction’. Stephen examines issues facing humanity at this time as diverse as the family unit, drug and alcohol abuse, mental health, creation and revelations of prophesy! In this unique book, there are many questions raised which may one day lead to the ultimate question. Who are we and just what is it that we are supposed to be doing here! Take your time and enjoy his rhymes or read more purposeful perhaps. Designed to entertain, Philosophical Muse will certainly make you ask questions!

Stephen was born in Liverpool and grew up in a small village called Rainhill, near St. Helens. He attended West Park Grammar School and moved on to graduate from the university of Aston with a BSc Hons in Managerial and Administrative Studies. This led him into a sales career, where he worked successfully for a brewery and several pharmaceutical companies. After completing his MBA at The Manchester Metropolitan University, he successfully moved into pharmaceutical management and later ran and owned a public limited company selling ECG equipment. Following an unhappy divorce and descent into depression, alcoholism and at times drug dependency, natural pathways have led him into becoming a writer, poet and storyteller. He lives in Cambridge, near his three children, where he often performs his work on stage in his unique and original style of ‘Real Fiction’.

    A very interesting read. Provocative, but poignant. Makes me ask questions about this world! A serious book, but also entertaining with humour

  • David B Hopes

    Stephen Peter Oldham's book PHILOSOPHICAL MUSE and STUFF 'N' NONSENSE would have struck me as various and original even I hadn't known the author from a distant life in Cambridge. This relationship allows me to assert perfect unusual honesty in the voice-- it is clearly Stephen's voice speaking candidly and directly about what moves his heart at the moment. The mix of poetry, fiction, performance poetry and philosophical musing is unusual in contemporary writing, harking back to the days of Carlyle and Macauley when a man considered it within his grasp to master more than one subject and view from more than one perspective. PHILOSOPHICAL MUSE is fun and thought-provoking. Follow the author's trail down a number of rabbit holes into a set of Wonderlands unique to the literary world. The soaring and exploratory performance poems make one wish the book came with a CD,

  • Rob Williams

    Thought-provoking, engaging and entertaining. This collection of poetry and reflections drawing on the life experiences of the author provides a perfect respite in these Covid days.
