Writer finding his voice – in short stories.

Spent this morning writing a short story of a self deprecating male and his sexual fantasies.  The story which will feature in my new book; The Psychedelic Traveler is the last of twelve stories that have one thing in common – exotic places.  Each story is set somewhere unusual including, Brazil, Liberia, Zimbabwe, Papua New Guinea, China, Siberia, Crimea, Iraq, New Zealand, the Pacific, Japan, and India.  I hope that this collection of short stories will find a place with travelers whether at home in their armchairs or on a plane or train. Each story is around 5000 words

The moods of the stories vary from suspense, comedy and human interest.

The art of the short story is alive and well though I find no support from the larger commercial literary enterprises.  However the advent of the electronic age has cast us all into the pit of unmerciful competition, where the multitude of talents, both big and small vie for a moment in the literary sun.

My two novels,”Smiles in Africa”, “The Poisoned Banquet”, one memoir- “My Boy” still languish in the dark, let’s hope “The Psychedelic Traveler” gets a little sun.
