On an abandoned street in Old Cairo, four Brits are kidnapped. But this is no ordinary kidnapping: the accommodation is three-star and the menu a la carte. They are hostages of The Serendipity Foundation, a mother and daughter act with a millennium-old prophecy to fulfill. Their field of expertise: terrorism with a social conscience...

This is fantastic! Stevyn Colgan, the master of problem solving, has shown us artistic ways to reuse old chewing gum.

Pure is the true story of my life with pure O – a rampant but little-known type of OCD with which people experience intrusive, ‘unthinkable’ thoughts, often sexual or violent in content. It tracks my farcical ten-year path to redemption, from the time I was seized by incessant sexual mental images to my eventual recovery through therapy, acceptance and love.

The book describes my obsessive questioning of my identity and my compulsive search for an answer: driving across the world in a double-decker bus; watching Jake Gyllenhaal’s face melt into a chubby vagina; sitting in the mansion of Lonely Planet’s founders and imagining them bumming across the patio… Eventually, after stepping back from the iron railings of a snow-swept balcony in east London, I find joy in the insurmountable truth that when it comes to who we are, there are no neat conclusions.

At its core, Pure is about uncertainty and insecurity, and how trying to banish these things in the pursuit of happiness will paradoxically make us unhappy. It’s about finding beauty in greyness, and embracing the unfathomable weirdness of the human mind.

A rather splendid podcast, in which Robert Philips announces an unfortunate death.

This is a book about modern dating, body shaming and a world that's afraid to look in the mirror, but most of all it's a book about being a GOOD HUMAN

Alice Jolly, writing in support of her Dead Babies and Seaside Towns project, on surrogacy, in The Independent

I used to think surrogacy was immoral – but then I watched another women give birth to my child http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/comment/watching-another-woman-give-birth-to-my-child-changed-my-mind-about-surrogacy-9657699.html
The 'Gammy’ case - that of the Australian couple who had a child born through surrogacy, but 'rejected' its Down’s Syndrome twin - has led to much controversy in the media, characterising the surrogacy process as exploitative and immoral, that it's  'shopping for babies'.

Books are now in your hands
Introduction

We think authors and readers should decide which books get published. On the Unbound site, authors pitch their ideas directly to you. If you like what you read, you can pledge your support to help make the book happen. Everyone who supports an author before they reach 100% of the funding target gets their name printed in every edition of that book. All levels include a digital version and immediate access to the author's shed while they write the book, and supporters of projects that don't reach their target receive a full refund.

If you like the sound of that, then sign up and have a look around. We've got some great projects and we'd love you to help make them happen. We're @unbounders on Twitter by the way.
