Cruel and Unusual Cover


Buy Cruel & Unusual Punnishments!

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was Aardvark. So begins Mark P. Henderson’s introduction to his beautifully crafted and wholly unlikely collection of animal sonnets that form just one part of Cruel and Unusual Punnishments. Add to these his fables without morals, his tales to tell and the skilful illustrations of illustrator David Moss, and you have a wonderful collection of entertaining short pieces of poetry and prose to make you laugh out loud, cry hysterically and throw yourself to the ground in utter disbelief.

    Mark, you are so talented!

  • Brilliant!!

    • Thanks for visiting, Phibby! At some point I hope to get ‘Perilaus’ republished in the UK, but I must get the current novel finished before I turn my attention in that direction…

      Hope all’s well with you!

  • Love the new site Mark, looks super

  • Hey Mark,

    Great looking website – I’m a little jealous – makes mine look like an over tired toddler had a hand in it.

  • One day, dear friend, I will purchase your book. I promise.

    • Mark Henderson

      Hey, dear lady, that’s really sweet of you – but I’d swop it ten times over for news that your financial and family circumstances had become settled. If I get my latest effort at novel-writing published (and we know it can take ages if it happens at all!) I’ll be delighted to send you a copy gratis!


  • Hello Mark

    Wow, your website looks terrific!

    I love the photo of Sam in the snow, he appears to be in his element.

    I love your imagination, it is almost like watching a movie. You are so talented.

    well done!


  • hey mark the book looks interesting by any chance will be available to buy on the kindle via amazon uk ?

    • Mark Henderson

      Hey Saeed –

      Good to hear from you! I hope all’s well with you.

      I’m not sure whether Amazon have “Perilaus” on Kindle but they do have hard copies, both new and second hand, for reasonably reduced prices. If you do a Google search for “Perilaus, Mark Henderson” you’ll get the Amazon link immediately, and I see there’s an option there for requesting a Kindle version.
