I am a Brummie living in Northampton. I love to write but get distracted with other things. I love horror/fantasy and anything that provokes original thought. My literary heroes are Clive Barker, Edgar Allan Poe and HP Lovecraft.

I think that everyone should read George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-four .

My stories

The World's End Motel

In the beginning, things were great. Seemingly, it had been a match made in heaven. All the signs were that we had a bright enough future together. I can still recall our wedding day. The sky was an ebullient blue, phosphorescent clouds in the minority as the sun streamed down on the gathering entourage. We readied ourselves for our vows with the theme of the day being how well suited we were. Maybe even the stars had fated our partnership, what with Aquarius and Aries a completely compatible combination. It's hard to imagine how things could turn out so differently.

Private Hell

It had been this way for thousands of years; there was never a question of boredom so long as new entertainment could be found. The only hell in a purgatory of sorts was to be bored. After all, this was forever in a manner of speaking. Memnock took his place as he did every day, perched on top of his fluffy white cloud, positioned nicely for the coming hours.

This reads in a whimsical way but interwoven with an element of drama/trauma that, I imagine, drives the whimsy. Apologies if I have misunderstood. Anyway...will read the next part...

Enjoyed reading this. You can't help concluding that we have got it all wrong in the UK with the frantic nature of life. I wish there was a culture of taking more time and enjoying being with friends and family on occasions like the one in your...

Yes, there would be a strange reaction if Alfred's memories were discovered. I imagine he would be accused of witchcraft!
