A great book  by local author Chris Roberts which comes highly recommended by Cornercopia!  I've known Chris for many years, he has a sharp wit and his writing style is very sharp and most enjoyable.  Alongside writing, Chris has been a tour guide for most of this century and is also responsible for a failed musical about Margaret Thatcher.
If you would like to sample a story before buying the book, he has made some podcasts of the stories - https://soundcloud.com/chris-roberts-737799

Bus Travel In South London
It’s London but not as you know it. Welcome to the south, the Surrey Shore, the Sunny Side. Get on a bus, go Transpontine and immerse yourself in some of the stories of the city over the water.

South London is Britain’s second largest city held together by shared geography and buses. The stories are set on, linked by or alongside some of these bus routes and are divided between those that might be considered real and those which could be labelled magically real. This is a less than perfect dichotomy in a place that contains a HellRaiser bus stop near the Bricklayers’ Arms Roundabout, dozens of roving bus preachers as well as the Peckham Terminator at Nigel Road stop. If these are real, and they are real, how does one designate the uncanny?

​Inside you’ll find angels, cyborgs, pirates and terrorists. There are shapeshifters, London folk demons and vengeful goddesses but also stories of love, friendship, growing up and revenge.
