Themed Short Story Collections
Ten short stories illustrating the pleasures and pitfalls of growing men from beans. How do you get rid of a bean man when he's outlived his usefulness? Why do Emily's men seem to have an aversion to mushrooms? How does 'Spider' know so much about the moon? What's so special about Las Vegas? Find out in 'Grow Your Own Man', a humorous look at the pros and cons of having green fingers.
A collection of short stories loosely linked by the theme of love. Stories of meetings and partings. Stories of hope and loss. Romance, danger, desire and wishful thinking. A little humour, a dash of pathos and a whole lot of love.
The collected stories from the Vertigo Research Labs. How can stairs stop working, when up becomes down? Can something be bigger on the inside than it is on the outside? Jepherson Thomas, janitor at the Vertigo labs, tells all in eleven humorous stories from the world's most unlikely research establishment.
A woman dreams of chameleons every night; a man in an orange jumpsuit finds himself marooned on a featureless plain; the first confirmed message from an extra terrestrial source; a cube with a mind of it's own and a bored space explorer all feature in this collection of eleven sci fi short stories in the old style. No magic, no wizards, no warlocks, no werewolves and not a vampire in sight.
‘Love’ reviewed on Smashwords (March 2019) by H5Bea A surprising selection of "love stories", really illustrating "Aspects of love " in very varied and often surprising tales. Each one "stand alone" a most soothing, comforting way to end my day. Loved it!     ‘Love’ reviewed on Smashwords (March 2019) by JoniH2503  An enjoyable volume of heart warming stories, many with an unexpected twist to finish. These are a perfect length for reading on a bus or train commute or at a lunch or coffee break.Recommended! ‘Vertigo’ reviewed at Smashwords (Jan 2015 by Elizabeth Rowan Keith Barnaby Wilde makes me think. And I have fun doing it. There is nothing typical about Wilde's work. I try to read something from him about once a month. It is easy to recommend.  This book is full of engaging entertainment with an intellectual twist. In one story, a soggy group of underwear-clad physicists are found running down the hall to witness a rare scientific event. It’s hilarious. And it’s entirely the thing scientists would do. Not many people would know that. Somehow, this author does. It makes me wonder if he learned from experience, and keeps a change of clothes at work. ‘Vertigo’ reviewed at Smashwords (Jan 2915) by Tracey Howard A unique collection of short stories based around one central character who tells his tales with gentle humor and good natured acceptance of the truly unusual place he works in. (not to mention the not-so-subtle lessons in science!) I whole-heartedly recommend this read for anyone who enjoys a little fantasy with their physics and a good chuckle with their coffee read!
