  “When I get a little money, I buy books. If any is left I buy food and clothes.” Erasmus  
What is a Loaghtan?
  A Rochester Town Crier'  
Tram Tales of the Manx Electric
Railway, stories 1-3
  Following the success of the first
three stories in our Tram Tales of the
Manx Electric Railway, we decided
that it would be fun to produce
an audio version, complete with
sound effects..
  Loaghtan Books has never done
anything like this before, so it took
longer than we expected, but it’s
now available.
We’re rather pleased with it.
  Each of the stories is read out by
the author, with the addition of audio
accompaniment. So, if a tram
whistles, it REALLY whistles.
Horses clop, brakes are applied
and a dinosaur roars…
  The CD contains all three stories:
Something on the Line
Stick to Safety
The Really Big Surprise
and is purchasable through our shop.
  Alternatively, if you prefer an MP3
download, then that will be
available through the shop too.
And you can listen for free to
a small snippet of each story, just
to hear what you’d be getting.
  We do hope you’ll like it. We do!
  Welcome to the Loaghtan Books website.
As a reader have you ever felt that the books you really want to own are just too expensive?

So did we!

To rectify that we at Loaghtan Books keep our prices as low as possible and the quality of our books as high as we can.

We are a small but growing independent
publishing house, founded to produce the sort
of books we want to read but can’t find elsewhere. At the moment we publish only factual books,
but in the future, who knows…?

We don’t restrict ourselves to specialising in
certain subjects, preferring to base our books on what readers tell us interest them. Whatever the subject each publication is researched thoroughly and imaginatively illustrated. Our books aim equally at education, illumination and entertainment or, to put it another way, learning and fun.

Some of our books are based on unique historic material; manuscripts and photographs not previously published to which we have added commentary so that our readers can understand allusions in the text not obvious to modern eyes.
Other books are completely new, researched and written in house or by authors whose standards are as high as our own.

In this digital age, information can be can be seen by thousands merely at the click of the mouse.
But how accurate is it? And who checks that it’s true? At Loaghtan Books we check. We verify everything we publish. And accuracy needn’t
be stuffy and boring. Look at our book pages
to find out.
