This is to announce that Simon Barnes comic novel DARKLY FLOWS THE TAFF  is published – as an e-book and in paper-back, and is obtainable from Amazon now.

The book – a satirical comedy thriller set in 1986 – pays homage to Hitchhiker’s Guide with a mix of Lucky Jim and James Bond (shaken but not stirred) and echoes a landscape as bizarre as Clochemerle.

Rupert Courtney Morgan, a young in-experienced ‘agent’ is sent to Wales to investigate the death of a government inspector, found dead on the Brecon Beacons – with a copy of Under Milk Wood,  and a deflated rugby ball by the body.

The culture of Wales is most emphatically rugby – it reigns supreme over all other arts and crafts, so here must be a clue!   Follow Rupert is his quest to unearth the truth and avoid death in:


Simon Barnes, Actor/Playwright, founded Llandovery Theatre, writing plays and directing professional and youth actors from 1976 until his death in 2006.  If he had survived his cancers; Monday, December 7th 2015 would be the 50th anniversary of his marriage to Jacky, so an auspicious day to launch his book.
