  1. 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 got mine on Thursday, so grateful.

    Born Again

    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.
  3. I wish everyone here a merry Christmas and a happy, prosperous and healthy New Year.

    May all our wonderful authors continue to be inspired!

  4. 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 !

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

      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??

    Chapter 1

    'The Lady Benefactor' is a delightful euphemism

    Chapter 24

    I was intrigued by this passage: "‘Hang on, Henry. Do you mean you don’t think God is all-powerful and can do anything?’ ‘As it happens, no, I don’t think He’s all-powerful." Henry the heretic is my favourite character !

    Chapter 12

    I notice that 'Rothenia' became 'Ruritania' in the course of Oskar's story. I enjoyed reading 'The Prisoner of Zenda' when a youngster.

    Chapter 19

    It's strange that, although this story was posted on the site in 2011, all the 'likes' for this chapter were posted in 2018 or later. I'm finding it quite exciting and am surprised it seems to have been neglected for so long.
  15. This is the first in a series of linked one chapter stories about the adventures of Charlie Boon and his three friends. Gradually, as the series progresses, others are drawn into the tale. Elves make frequent appearances and quite a few aliens are encountered. These highly imaginative stories are very exciting, and each story offers something new. What makes the series most attractive for me is that Charlie is always kind, his first reaction to a strange creature with an unusual problem is to befriend them and help to solve the problem. These are stories to be read when you want to feel
