Welcome to the site. It contains original stories, random drivel, plus possibly experimental HTML 5 page or occasional CSS3 experiment.

Quote of the week: “Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.” ― Mark Twain


All stories published on this site are original. Some have first appeared on my blog.

Disqus comments have been added to the stories. Because it would be interesting to see if anyone feels moved to comment on a story.

I currently have several novels in various stages of editing. I may eventually publish snippets of those novels here. I will certainly advertise any of them that are published but none of them have reached that exalted state at this time.

New - The Shakespearian Insult Generator. For all your classic insult needs.

Reading room

This is about the author, about the site and general contact information.
