    I love the humour in this story. In the context of the calendar with naked footballers "my friend can touch you up on her computer" was a delightful double entrendre.
  2. Indeed; I wonder about all those questions, and especially what prevented Trevor from attending the award ceremony.
  3. I read the last chapter and the epilogue today. I've enjoyed it very much. It includes one of my favourite characters, Miss Jenkins, and as a bonus mentions a number of towns I know. The story is supposed to be the first of a trilogy, so there should be a lot more to come. Johnny is supposed to receive a medal so royalty may be involved eventually.
  4. I've been thinking about this for several days, butt still can't prove it though I do believe it. This is as far as I've got: Notation: In expressions of the form: abcd... a, b, etc are integers in the range 0 to 9 and abcd represents the number with digits a, b, c, d All numbers are assumed to be in base ten unless otherwise stated. The transformation T is defined to that T(abcd) = abcd + dcba The Sum S of any number N is defined as S(N) = sum of the digits of N, so S(abcd) = a+b+c+d The 'Hypothesis' is that any positive integer can be converted into a
  5. Now we have to prove it, preferably for numbers in any base.
  6. I quite like the unary system. Unix systems used to have an option to choose the number base, and I liked to set that to one.
  7. Like @Parker Owens I used to teach Mathematics and find numbers intriguing. I recently read somethings about undefinable numbers and non-computable numbers. However much we find out, there'll always be lots we don't know.
  8. Thank you for very exciting story. I'm glad there is to be a sequel if only to confirm that Vincent won that fight.
  9. I'm now a vaccinated ancient :2thumbs:  The Health Centre opened on a Sunday to jab hosts of over 80s of whom I was one.

    I liked that story. It gripped me in a way that few short stories manage. There was a wonderful balance between the grim past and the sweet happy child of today. Thank you for posting it.
  11. I wish everyone here a merry Christmas and a happy, prosperous and healthy New Year.

    May all our wonderful authors continue to be inspired!

  12. Congratulations on an excellent, front page review. 😊 It's already garnered new fans for the stories.

      Thank you for the kind words. Mike Arram's stories are brilliant, engaging and compulsive reading. I felt quite sad that I'd never be able to meet the characters.

    There's another Charlie Boone Story.


    I love Charlie Boone !

  14. I liked Zack's way of dealing with George :-)
  15. Someone here should be able to make a story out of this:

      Sounds like you are volunteering.   :P

      Consensual fun and games is one thing, controlling behaviour in an abusive relationship is another - a criminal offence in fact.

      So why has Amazon being selling this product??
