Stories by AB


AB has decided to retire, certainly for the present, from authorship. His writing career here has been excellent, the more so since he writes in a language which is not his mother tongue. Long ago we forgave some unusual spellings and phrasings, none of which have affected the enjoyment of his imagination and his tales.

His two remaining tales will run to conclusion, one after the other

His personal circumstances are his property, but his retirement has been caused by joy and happiness. He may tell you more if you email him, but he has the right not to.

As owner and editor of this site I think I speak for all readers in wishing him well for the future. I also thank him for telling me at the start of January 2018 rather than just fading away. I would have worried about him otherwise as I worry about many other authors who have simply gone dark.
