To complement the publication of my most recent collection of stories entitled ‘Consequences’ (details below), I thought I’d share some comments regarding said stories:
‘Probably the greatest book I’ve never read.’
‘Whilst not quite Dostoevsky, Kafka or McEwan, the author certainly uses words.’
‘A real page turner. I couldn’t wait to finish it.’
‘Simply a collection of short stories.’
‘I have just read an outstanding collection of wonderfully crafted short stories. This wasn’t it.’
Three tales exploring consequences; the consequences of random events, of choices and decisions made and of fate or chance.
A Slow Return sees a man analysing his emotions as he is forced to face up to the consequences of his actions following a random accident.
In The Witness a man’s life unravels before his eyes after he becomes an unwilling witness to an event which may or may not have happened.
But the collection opens with Spinning Wheel, a story of fate creating a situation in which the boundaries between reality and fantasy become blurred, leading a man into a series of unexpected consequences.
Should you feel inclined to purchase a copy I send you my thanks in advance!

Hilarious Chris. And a cunning advertising plot! You left out Dorothy Parker: This is not a book to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.
Thanks, Bruce, and especially for seeing the joke and leaving your feedback – I think that there are a few out there who either missed the point or don’t read closely!
I’m nit sure how much a ploy this will be (probably fa at the first hurdle), but hey-ho. Love the Dorothy Parker quote!
