A Geordie sketchbook featuring time travel, reincarnation and the
entire history of Newcastle-upon-Tyne from Roman to present day.

Merging historical fact with picturesque invention and involving
notable names, perilous deeds and fantastical undertakings, Ocellus
is a unique mix of all things weird and wordy that boasts both
supernatural elements and everyday machinations, served up on a
plate of local manners with a good dollop of humour, metaphysics
