"Scarfolk is a town in north-west England that did not progress beyond 1979. The entire decade of the 1970s loops ad infinitum. In Scarfolk children must not be seen OR heard, and everyone has to be in bed by 8 p.m. because they are perpetually running a slight fever..."

Part-comedy, part-horror, part-satire, Discovering Scarfolk is the surreal account of a family trapped in the town. Through public information posters, news reports, books, tourist brochures and other ephermera, we learn about the darker side of childhood, school and society in Scarfolk.

A massive cult hit online, Scarfolk re-creates with shiver-inducing accuracy and humour our most nightmarish childhood memories.

Book Description:

"Discovering Scarfolk is a hilarious novel filled with so-creepy-it’s funny illustrations and a relentlessly silly back story...The entire thing is a well-deserved and cunningly observed parody of modern Britain, reminiscent of Jonathan Swift at times...The discomfort simply makes the gags funnier and the result is a book that is genuinely laugh out loud funny but also makes you wonder what is wrong with you. The laughter will stay with you for some time, as will the commentary."
-Starburst Magazine

"The parodies are so accurate you'll never look at the real thing in the same way again....A 'Must Read'."
-SciFi Now Magazine

"Beautifully realised."
- SFX Magazine

"The clever perfection of the parody images, combined with the Pythonesque word play and riffs on the stranger aspects of British culture, are a masterpiece in absurdist horror."
-The Daily Grail

From the Back Cover:

Welcome to Scarfolk...

Imagine you and your family are held captive in a town that is forever locked in the 1970s.

If you cannot imagine it, just think what it would be like.*
