  1. A Fairy Story

    Forenote: A few weeks ago a lady for whom I do some occasional work asked me to take a permanent position in her organisation. I did not have the heart to refuse but I knew that it would have been impossible for me. I didn't want to lose contact and I wanted to continue to work for a few hours per week at this keyboard (cos I am a lazy and selfish sod!)

    Adventure

    Trevelyon P Wymering had been born the son of the owners of a small, non-descript hotel in the small Welsh town of Mychynlleth and spoke in that lilting aspirated North Walian accent that is seldom heard in foreign climes.

Bit busy at the moment proof reading/re-writing a hundred or so pages and completing an 8 page cartoon strip insert (proof reading has to be the worst job ever invented. Had I access to a time machine I would be tempted to travel back a couple of hundred years so that I could volunteer to pick okum!)

    Maybe its simply a desire to be loved! .... or was it the ...

    A Rose by Any Name

    Algernon Twygge had an unusual charm but little else to commend him. Born Alan Twig in a small Dorset village he had been a studious boy and had excelled in matters academic. His father had been an underwriter in the family firm of Twig, Alsop and Murchison, and it had been an accepted fact that Alan would follow in his father's safe and steady footsteps and the family had high expectations. So it came as something of a surprise when he announced that he had secured ...
