HISTORY

HORRIBLE! horrible! HORRIBLE! but FABULOUS
Well you've probably read the books - I love them.  Years and years ago when they were first published and dinosaurs roamed the earth,
I purchased the first HORRIBLES directly from the UK.  
HORRIBLE Histories are designed to engage and enthuse the reader
about a subject while appearing subversive, primarily aiming to entertain with a background educative purpose. 
IT’S HISTORY WITH THE NASTY BITS LEFT IN!
