I'm loving these characters. 

Posted on Sat, 13 Feb 2016

I'm loving these characters.  The detectives in particular jump off the page.  You are very firmly in that tradition of engaging, gently surreal British humour that gets its strength from strong characterisation and situations that are extreme...

Sad but with the re-emergence

Posted on Mon, 08 Feb 2016

Sad but with the re-emergence of hope at the end.  Oh, the way we sabotage ourselves by listening to others!   I found this very moving.

I loved this.  Despite the title I didn't see it coming, and I think it's a brilliant idea.  I think my poor wardrobe must see itself more as a carer in an old folks' home...

Trying to pick out, as one

Posted on Sun, 25 Oct 2015

Trying to pick out, as one does, the 'I particularly liked...' bit, and I can't, because each paragraph is so rich and multi-layered.  Just blown away by the way you use words to envoke feelings, sensations, physical textures and so many vivid...

Posted on Tue, 15 Sep 2015

It's the same anmesia you get with childbirth.  It hurts like hell at the time, but somehow, a little while later, it all seems like a terribly good idea again...

Enjoyed and empathised with this!

Posted on Mon, 14 Sep 2015

I've read this several times and appreciated it more each time.  In its dissection of the way people are brutalised in war it held echoes, for me, of the WW1 war poets.  Disturbing look at the questions of how and why people can do such things to...

Posted on Fri, 11 Sep 2015

Subtle and sad. Such effective imagery, especially with the daisies at the end.  It's only when you reach the second part of the poem that you realise the current of unease has been there all along.

Posted on Wed, 09 Sep 2015

Intriguing.  Strong descriptions - the grey of things and the houses as 'almost protecting'.  The hints that this is not the first time for this scenario.   Is this stand alone or will we find out more?  I hope more! Welcome to ABC Tales.

Wonderful use of language. 

Posted on Mon, 31 Aug 2015

Wonderful use of language.  That opening paragraph has the reader hooked, and the image of palms of velcro is so very evocative.  The final paragraph hints at all the emotional turmoil experience says is to come.  Acutely observed.

I enjoyed this.  Very visceral, and the physical descriptions are particularly good.  Anna's character is also well drawn at the beginning.  I wasn't quite sure about the final paragraph.  I...
