My ever faithful editor Dave has a wicked sense of humour. When, after more than 1½ years of complete "radio silence" - and close on 3 years since I last sent him anything to edit, I suddenly sent him a short story, his reply e-mail was headlined "It's ALIVE!!!"
Point taken, Dave.
And point taken, the - surprisingly - many of you who have made discreet - or blunt - inquiries if I was planning on publishing anything ever again.
I was willing; but The Muse was conspicuously absent.
Until now. A brief story in the "Danish George" subgenre of the George series has now seen the light of day. As usual for those, the new story, Kærestekedelig, it is based very loosely on real characters, real places and real events, but the outcome is complete fiction.
Oh, yeah, the title. He he. I got away with posting a story with a Latin title (De Minimis Non Curat Lex). This time the title is, befittingly, in Danish. You'll simply have to read the story to find out what it all means. When you do, please vote and write me a note telling we, what you think.
Acknowledgements: Thank you to all those of you who wrote and urged me to try and lure The Muse back. And thank you, most of all, to Dave who always make my stories so much better from his precise editing that is a ruthless to mistakes as it is respectful to the author's intentions.
