In "For Want of a Memory", we have the story of a best selling author that gets into an accident, and ends up with amnesia. After being rescued by a young woman in a small town, all he can remember is that he writes. Read along as he learns about life and discovers a new type of writing.

For stroke, as the author mentions, there isn't any sex for a long time, though there is a lot of overt flirting that definitely raises the temperature in the room. Once the sex does start, it is urgent, hot, and very well done. Even the simple act of describing a woman's appearance while wearing lingerie was hot. Even though the sex takes a long time to get to, the anticipation was extremely well done, and was worth that wait.

The plot itself is excellent. From the very beginning, I was drawn deeply into the story, and compelled to keep on reading. The characters are intriguing, fun, and often make you smile.

Technically, I only noticed one flaw, and that was a word being capitalized when it shouldn't have been. Other then that, this was was very clean. For a story of this length, that's well done.

Lubrican has written many very good stories over the years, and he is one of my favorite authors, even despite the fact that the whole "making all the women pregnant" fetish isn't something that turns me on. In this story, he takes a departure from that story type, and quite frankly, I think he should consider doing it more often.

To put it simply, this is the best story I've read of his to date, and that's saying something.

Thanks, Lubrican, for writing such a great story. And thanks to Peaches, who inspired it!

I am a sucker for a good love story, but this ain't one! No it is a terrific love story. Thanks, Robert!

Murphy's law states categorically that if anything can go wrong it damn well will. So, lets consider our hero, Kris; brought up in the Outback of Australia, moving to New York, getting involved with a real bitch, and then on top of all that poor old Kris is a published Author.

Then he interrupts a kidnapping of the Governor's wife, and gets shot in the head by the incompetent kidnappers, and ends up in the arms of a beautiful Samaritaness (is there such a thing?) and then he loses his memory of everything that has happened in his past life.

See what I mean? Well Lulu, his saviour, changes everything for the better, with the help of Mitch, the cop, and Jessica, the nurse.

Now, folks, if you are thinking that Uncle Bob will suddenly appear, forget it. Instead sit back and be really entertained by this happy romp through rural America. but definitely not a stroke story, as weird as it may seem.
