A Story of May

I was born in October, and I always knew my name was chosen as a political statement. My Dad was a member of the International Marxist Group back then. They were big in the seventies.

I thought it was a bit more

Posted on Sat, 31 Oct 2020

I thought it was a bit more ambiguous than a prank, just from the scale of the thing.  I was assuming that Mr Hain had a very special hotel and was able to produce effects that owed more than a little to 'special powers'.  However, did think it...

You have so cleverly created

Posted on Thu, 23 Jul 2020

You have so cleverly created an atmosphere where their nerves are jangling, and everyone they come across might be an enemy.  And then it's a relief when someone is kind to them, but the reader is still on edge because it might not last.  The...

Posted on Fri, 03 Jul 2020

Just read all the parts of this straight through, and most disappointed that there's not a link to another one!  I remember the first draft of this, which I really enjoyed, but this is another level entirely.  Utterly engrossing.  The characters...

Agree so much with your words

Posted on Sun, 14 Jun 2020

Agree so much with your words about 'tolerance'.  Tolerance of others is a privilege for the powerful.  

I'm going to be coming back to this one, because there's so much in there to think about.

Posted on Thu, 02 Apr 2020

There have been times when I've felt just like that.  It's a bit like when there's an eclipse of the sun, and you know it's going to come back, but then it takes longer than you thought and somewhere deep inside you a little prehistoric creature...

Completely echo Drew's comment.  I love hearing writers read their work, it always brings an extra dimension to it.  And no ashtrays heard here, either!

Posted on Thu, 05 Mar 2020

I did like your list of apocalypse threats that we have all survived!  As you say, we shall get through this one too.  As far as I understand it, it isn't that this virus is hyper-deadly, it's just that it's new so  no-one has had a chance to...
