Seven short stories with no overarching theme but with a slant toward the unexpected.
True Colours: A petty criminal owes money to the local crime baron and is living in fear. Could a mysterious caller offer him a way out, or is he simply bringing a different kind of trouble?
Don’t Forget Maggie: Two wartime schoolgirls help one another in the aftermath of an air-raid.
The Witch’s Stone: History comes alive when a young couple make their new home in a very old house.
A Streetlight Named Desire: A new streetlight causes mayhem in this tale of love, light and the neighbourhood watch, which was written in homage to Tom Sharpe.
A Streetlight Named desire is also available separately via Amazon.
Spiders: An arachnophobe goes deep into enemy territory.
A Woman Reflects: It’s an odd thing; how the police can make even an innocent person feel nervous and guilty, or is innocence simply a matter of perspective?
The Library at Saint Pélice: A Victorian academic’s studies take an unexpected and dangerous turn when he visits the eponymous French abbey in this homage to the ghost stories of M. R. James.
