I have always been a bit of a storyteller. I used to do it in the army. I've lost count of the times I've had to "invent" some wild story or other to tell my Battery Commander to stay out of the Guardhouse. Then, when I came out of the Army, I couldn't speak or walk so whilest in hospital, learning to do so, I taught myself to type so that I had a means of relating my stories. Okay, it's not the same as talking but it's a hell of a lot better than having a story locked in your head and you can't get it out properly. Now, however, my speech has improved sufficiently to enable me to talk quite succinctly but it has taken a long time.

A STORY FOR CHILDREN & CHILDISH ADULTS
Smart and keen – Malcolm was a street cleaner. Suburbiaville’s children loved him. The council decide to replace him with a machine, manned by droids,called the “All-in-One-Der”. He is inspired to contest the council – man versus machine. The council are so confident of winning so they give him a head start.
