Some people have found The Governor hard going in places due to his scatological preferences. In my defence, it isn't my fault that he turns out the way he does; he's just doing what comes naturally to him. Anyway, as an act of contrition, here's a nicer short story I wrote quickly whilst the idea was in my head.

The Governor

New story line, combines some pretty basic stuff with, hopefully, a reasonable story. August Ling isn't a hero, he's a guy willing to take risks to get what he wants; and a guy willing to make use of his local power to do stuff no self-respecting woman would allow, unless they had promised 'anything'. He's also, again, hopefully, a likeable rogue. He walks a tightrope of having to achieve success to satisfy his superior, and not too much success so he gets nervous.
And he has a heart too, if not a heart of gold, at least of silver ... okay, maybe bronze with some lead in it.
Hope the scatology doesn't put too many people off, it comes and goes and is necessary to the plot.

A Sailing Trip

Even the biggest war (so far) leaves room for people to live their own personal lives and enjoy the peace of a sailing trip. I wanted to try and show that in this little story of a pilot recuperating and a summer trip delivering goods by ancient technology (sail), just before the world went down the rabbit hole of holocaust and nuclear destruction.

Oh dear, seems this short story isn't what my readers want. Ah well, never mind. I just liked the idea when it came to me, of him working his way up to the top of the school (and then finding a like mind). Of course in reality he would have been arrested, flung in gaol and beaten up by a load of crims. but we aren't dealing with reality are we?

Summer Camp on The Lake

Final chapter just posted. From a simple idea of a letter change in a name changing someone's sex, it burgeoned into quite an enjoyable tale to write. Hope you all enjoyed it too.
