This is a collection of short stories, verse, and so-named ‘Flash Fiction’ for the male or female reader who enjoys variety. Topical themes covered by the short stories range from Crime drama (from differing perspectives) Satire (you may even think you recognize a character or two!) and Comedy pieces doing their best to raise a smile or a chuckle. So if you would like to know what might have happened to a pacifist during the first world war, then there’s a story here for you. If you want to find out how a man called Malone deals with his unfaithful wife, there’s a story here for you. If you want to visit a coward’s grave (with a difference) you can do so within these pages. If the spiritual world interests you, then hopefully you will find something positive to take from ‘It’s Only Words’, the short story bearing the title which has been given to this collection. As for the versed work within this collection, the author has again ranged across a multi-coloured palate of subject matter. He has written to amuse you or stimulate you, or even move you if he has caught you at a time when a particular piece may resonate within you as you read.
