“They say time and tide wait for no man. I, on the other hand, wait for you all.”

A clock ticks above your head, counting down time, counting down your life. There’s no escaping it. For millennia, I have walked amongst you. I have only one job: collection of the newly departed. My name is Death. In all this time I have never spoken to a living soul… That is until now.

Follow Death through the annals of time as he shares the tales of his ‘collections’ from the docks of London to the cotton fields of America and the heat of the Burmese jungle.

These tales of love, hate, joy, and fear are all illustrated with an eclectic Spotify playlist and an extraordinary debut novel by author Andrew Reid.

Andrew Reid was born in County Antrim, Northern Ireland in 1967. He has written poems and music since he was 12, when his parents bought him Pink Floyd’s album The Wall for his birthday. The album changed everything for Andy. The darkness, moodiness was sheer brilliance – almost instilling fear into him. He was already writing short poems, but this new music and lyrics inspired him to be more adventurous with his writing. He no longer had to write for the ‘norm’. Andy has now finally turned the pen to his first novel. His love of music is a strong influence in this novel as he links tracks poignantly with the deaths of his fictional, and sometimes real characters. It took three years to finally complete the book, with life priorities often taking over. As this book is published, Andrew is excited to be starting his next project and hopes you will follow his work.
