Robert Wringham - Stern Plastic Owl

A collection of short essays and flash fiction compiled by Robert Wringham.

"Sir, you couldn't count the number of cylinders I'm firing on..."

Meet Robert Wringham. He strides across the landscape of a slightly fantastical world. It's the same world that you and I live in... only more so.

It's a STERN world.

It's a PLASTIC world.

You'd better believe it's an OWL world.

It's the world of the STERN PLASTIC I-KNOW-NOT-WHAT.

- Is it possible to walk through a duckpond using a corncob pipe for air?
- Just what was H.G. Wells like in the sack?
- And how high can you raise the eyebrow before it interferes with the flightpaths of planes?

Deft Mr. Wringham skirts around these questions and more in his latest collection of what The Financial Times recently described as "some dope shit"*, some thirty classic pieces tenderly gouged from their original contexts and artfully mashed into book form.

*they said no such thing.

Not in the UK?

Fear not! Many items can still be ordered. Amazon in the UK delivers to many international territories, whilst their Australia, USA and Canada stores also supply many equivalent or imported items.

If you are in the North America, look out for US/Canadian flag icons on popular product listings for direct links.

If you order from a UK store, please note that the UK is in Region 2 and B, respectively, for DVDs and Blu-rays - check your player's compatibility, or look for multi-region products if you are located in another region.

If you are in Australia or New Zealand (DVD Region 4), note that almost all DVDs distributed in the UK by the BBC and 2entertain are encoded for both Region 2 and Region 4. The UK and Australasia are in the same Blu-ray region (B).
