Will There Be Toilets on Delos?

A Personal Guide to the Greek Islands for the Nervous Traveller


Will There Be Toilets on Delos? is a record of visits to 60 inhabited Greek islands. Before he retired, John Bishop read that there were 166 such islands, out of which by then he had visited 10, partly from nervousness about the Colonels, flying and the heat.

Setting out to fight his fears, he quickly quadrupled the total, thanks to the configurations of the Greek ferry system.

At this point he realised the rest of the islands were difficult to get to, and some islands needed multiple visits to fully appreciate what they had to offer, although his new discoveries did continue.

The book is an ideal travel prophylactic for the nervous traveller or someone who wants to go off the beaten track, but not too far!

'The Chinese Attack: Ypres 1917' is the second edition of the 2011 paperback, currently available as a Matador ebook but re-issued in paperback format. This will coincide with the centenary of the foundation of the Chinese Labour Corps in early 1917.

'Will There Be Toilets on Delos?' is scheduled for release on 28 August 2021.

 John Bishop

John Bishop was born in Heswall on the Wirral and now lives in Codsall near Wolverhampton. Originally an English teacher, he was for six years a College Principal in Birmingham.

'The Chinese Attack', his first novel and originally published by Vanguard in 2011, was inspired by his grandfather's involvement as a sergeant with the Chinese Labour Corps on the Western Front in WW1.

His second novel, 'Love, Freedom or Death', derives from a long-running love affair with Greece. His third novel, 'Refuse to Forget', emerged from a fascination with the way WW1 started and drew people into a cataclysm they could never have imagined.

During Lockdown2 he decided to complete a project he'd envisaged several years earlier, namely a personal guide to the Greek islands for the nervous traveller, with the title 'Will There be toilets on Delos?'
