The Turning Of The Crow
Sometimes
there’s a sound like a
drawer opening and closing and on
the final thud a noise
like powder raining
on paper. It took two
mugs of coffee to solve
this early morning mystery: the
turning of a crow in a
cracked terracotta chimney pot sending
down a ...

The Intruder (Part Four)
Albert kept in the shadows, hardly daring to
breathe. Meanwhile, the intruder continued to survey the bewildering garden
casually as if he owned the place. It was a complete role reversal. Maybe Albert should have done something to

Albert lay on the sofa and realised that he

The Intruder (Part One)
Albert Johnson was enjoying an afternoon of
tonsillitis.                    Certainly, the coughing and the sore throat
had been something of a drag and the pink streaks of blood in his phlegm had

Smugglers
The wind
rattles the doors, shakes the

through the eaves, the
midnight slots where
pieces of the bricks that
complete the puzzle that is a
house are missing. The same
black squares w...

Untold Stories
The hours that make a
Saturday - or a Sunday, can
stretch, if you don’t try too hard, into years. I wanted to see a ridge of
hills spread out against a

The Intruder (Final Part)
Enough of this, enough of this messing around
- scared now, Albert took the mobile phone from his dressing gown pocket. … ‘Mind if I take a look in the garden, son?’ Albert followed the policeman. There was, of course, no man in the garden.

The Intruder (Part Three)
The previous night had brought a gale. A fence
panel lay like a dead soldier on the lawn. A mess of wild entanglements made up
of brambles and branches and escaped black bin liners made access through the
