Volume 3

by Ian Riddle
Publication Date: 17/10/2020
RRP  $17.59 $16.95
This third collection of shorts opens with A Tar Dark Night, a story written in homage to Dylan Thomas, and finishes with Our Rose the author's first foray into monologues. Both are written in a humorous vein.

In between, as previously, there's a melange of stories, happy, sad, humorous, others more serious plus a further two monologues, That's Technology a satirical piece on one man's reluctance to embrace technology more than needs be and Coffee Break, the capture of a hitman on the run.

To Elysian Fields is a sobering piece, a reflection on the state of homelessness in Britain today.

Two Total Strangers and Unforgiven are stories on human relationships. Any judgements made are the reader's prerogative.

Where Dreams Go to Die is a short piece reflecting on the danger of allowing a dream to become an all-consuming passion. The outcomes may not always live up to the expectations.

The Devil is in the Detail is the tale of a blighted spirit.

The Traveller is a rewrite, in prose, of Walter de la Mare's famous poem, 'The Listeners'. In this version, The Traveller has traded his horse for a motorbike.

'A Fracas at The Pig and Whistle' is a light-hearted summer story of strawberries and cricket.
