Perhaps I could just stay here in the four poster bed, lulled by lavender and flowers and the odd bottle of Aphrodite whisky.
Cherry

The Net Caster (Part Thirteen)

Faced with a professional assassin awaiting instructions to kill me, I poured myself several glasses of whisky.
Cherry

The Net Caster (Part Twelve)

A table, a bottle of Aphrodite whisky, and two glasses. The scenario was familiar. Was this really down to dumb luck? '
Cherry

The Net Caster (Part Eleven)

It hardly mattered in which direction I walked. It was only a matter of time. And there was a figure standing at the end of the street.
Cherry

The Net Caster (Part Ten)

I'm fascinated by this. 

Posted on Fri, 06 Jan 2017

I'm fascinated by this.  There's shades of Doctor Moreau, ​and the dialogue is very evocative of time and place.  I think it needs a bit of editing - it's a bit too wordy in places and you lose the pace.  But it's well worth the effort...

Pure gold.  No wonder politicians keep saying breakfast when they mean Brexit.  Eggstrordinary.

Enjoyed the rhythm of this, and sense of fun.  In this weather it's all too easy to feel that the keyboard is the best option!  A lovely Christmas message.
