Lots of strange and

Posted on Tue, 26 Jul 2016

Lots of strange and fantastical things here, with a fluidity between dreams and reality.  I was wondering if it might help with the pacing if you used the dialogue to push the story forward - eg if, in the conversation between the narrator and...

Posted on Mon, 25 Jul 2016

Hello!  I enjoyed this very much.  Beautifully constructed, and some lovely strong phrases like 'the yoghurty morning light'.  A mysterious and unsettling atmosphere with underlying humour.  A rewarding read.

Posted on Mon, 25 Jul 2016

Very perceptive, Luigi - an acronym to sum up someone who lived by the soundbite and image manipulation.  I never really took to him personally but I both voted for him and, later on, marched in protest against him.   The early years of his...

I don't know what you're worrying about, Ewan.  Thousands will march, sweeping all opposition aside, in their quest.  Pikachu will save the world.  #WTF

I don't share your Christian

Posted on Mon, 11 Jul 2016

I don't share your Christian faith, but I admire your honesty and ability for self reflection.  This struck a real chord with me because of what I have been calling a lot of demands on my time recently from people who need support, and it's easy...

Posted on Sat, 09 Jul 2016

Interesting piece, and I'm not sure quite where I stand on this one.  In many ways I agree that if we want quality journalism we should accept we have to pay for it, but the digital genie's out of the bottle with news as with music and other...

Pissing on someone's

Posted on Thu, 07 Jul 2016

Pissing on someone's strawberries will now become part of my lexicon.  Decidedly more evocative than raining on a parade!  As always, this is so wonderfully visual.  The image of policemen with pink binoculars is to be treasured.

Posted on Thu, 07 Jul 2016

The picture is stunning, as are the words.  I suppose I'm reading this as a companion piece to your 'Folklore', so the beauty seems to have a number of barbs.  Particularly liked the verse about history shooting arrows.

Hi!  Welcome to ABC Tales.

Hi!  Welcome to ABC Tales.

Very intruiging start to your story and I am looking forward to seeing where it will go next.  I like the blending of SF and fantasy and the way you contrast the day to day requirements of the narrator's job and...

Clear-eyed about the risks

Posted on Sat, 25 Jun 2016

Clear-eyed about the risks and the fears, and offering encouragement that it can be done.  I felt as thought I wanted to know what had been the tipping point for this woman, what finally made her feel she and her child deserved better.  A good...
