Six would-be novels which never grew past the 'Good idea' stage, and remained forever short stories.* The only short stories I can still find, the remainder now lost in the mists - and garbage cans - of time. Curse of the the typewriter period. Och, the puir wee orphans! *(Er, except for the one which became a stage play.)

Sardonic Novel: There is so much nonsense written about King Arthur that one can easily forgive students for being confused by accounts written centuries after Arthur's time. Here we bring you personal accounts by People Who Were There. Personal perspective, Time Slither, sheer terror, and certain anomalies in the Time Equations are all properly considered. Make what you can of it. Good luck!
All Together

Playwright's delight - a play within a play. Actors trying to get a Shakespearean play on stage, and also trying to find their own identities in the ephemeral world of Theatre. Many of the elements of this work are true although the totality is fiction. This play is not suitable for amateur production.

Was the Old West really won, or merely stolen? Opinions differ on that one. We go back to a time when Law was more or less what men made up as they went along.
Looking For The Road To Wisdom
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 50,880. Language: English. Published: December 5, 2009. Categories: Fiction » Humor & comedy » General
Sardonic Novel: Pornography. Not that I think much of porn; to me it's usually lousy writing for sex maniacs who cannot manage the real thing for themselves. So, here you have the subject ridiculed, the practitioners ridiculed, and the ludicrous pretensions of various self important folk also put to the literary sword. I won't promise you'll laugh, but you might perhaps smile as you read it.
For The Love Of Charley-Am
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 61,010. Language: English. Published: December 3, 2009. Categories: Fiction » Thriller & suspense » Crime thriller
Edition 5. Charley-Am Watts is a pretty young widow making a meagre living in Vienna. Hugo Renner is a tough, suave cop charged with protecting the Austrian Constitution. He is faced with uranium smuggling, murder, a bungling British agent, a vicious CIA rendition squad, all somehow involving Charley-Am. There is mystery, humour, high courage and low trickery in this novel.
