The ramblings of a man who thinks he's seen an angel. A drunken commentary on a night out on the town. A goddess snatching a holidaymaker down to the underworld. A desperate husband seeking help for his dying wife. A man stuck down a manhole after his stag do. The tell-all story of the ups and downs of a global pop band. An appeal to His Satanic Majesty.
These are just a few of the eclectic cast of characters and stories assembled by L. A. Davenport as he explores the meaning of life in the modern world and the frailties that we all have to face, all woven through with finely drawn observations and a strong sense of the absurd.
L. A. Davenport is an Anglo-Irish author. He sometimes lives in the countryside, far away from urban distraction, but mostly he lives in the city. He enjoys long walks, typewriters and strong black coffee.
He wants proof? Fine. She bets Blake she can make him fall for her by using the rules in her latest novel before the end of the convention, or she’ll denounce love in front of all her fellow authors and fans at the Romance Lovers Convention ball. A dangerous game to be sure, but humiliating Blake is worth the risk.
But when Seven realizes she’s the one who’s being seduced, she’s no longer sure who is playing whom...or whether she’ll have a career when the bet is over.

Or if I even want to.
Helen Marshall can’t believe Ricardo’s outrageous proposal, or that she’s considering it, but she must help clear her parents’ debts or her family faces financial ruin. The small print on the marriage contract states they’ll be husband and wife for three months in every way—including in the bedroom. But there’s nothing in the contract about falling in love, or what they do when the three months is up and they want to negotiate a clause binding them forever.
A teenage girl desperate for reconciliation with her absent father. A woman manipulated into thinking she is insane. A dystopian future where unhealthiness is punishable by death. The unrequited love of a young shop assistant. An intimate journey into London's kaleidoscope heart. The wedding dream of a dying solider far from home.
Meet lives thrown against each other by chance, with potentially devastating consequences, resistance fighters battling against a brutal state that uses Wellness as a means of oppression, pretentious designers, lazy office workers and drunken bar flies as they spiral into the twilight hours of city life, and many more.
No Way Home is a new collection of thought-provoking, poignant and thrilling stories by L. A. Davenport, featuring Screen Grab, Deathcast, Stations of the Soul and three other brand-new stories.
“Good Omens . . . is something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated. Lots of literary inventiveness in the plotting and chunks of very good writing and characterization. It’s a wow. It would make one hell of a movie. Or a heavenly one. Take your pick.”—Washington Post
According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.
So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.
And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .
