Short Fews 1

By Richard G. Stevens

Short stories | eBook


Short Fews 1 is a collection of 8 short stories based on the truth. But what is truth? It ranges from the zero truth of some politicians to the infinite truth we could expect from a woman in Holy Orders. Now I have never been a politician in the normal sense of the word but some have suggested that my tongue is sufficiently forked to qualify me for the highest office. Obviously I couldn’t possibly have been a nun in Holy Orders, but I did borrow a nun’s bike from outside a convent once, because it had a nice looking saddle. In between are shades of grey and it is for you to decide what I actually did or have come to believe I did. These stories span some thirty years and have been chosen because when I have recounted them, they have elicited a variety of reactions from the incredulous to the astounded, but rarely without some amount of laughter. They are based on explosive experiences I have had over some thirty years, ranging from a 10 year-old potential boat destroyer to a forty year-old taking desperate steps to join the exclusive Mile High Club. In between are revelations that might shock, but I hope will amuse. If you should only chuckle at each of my stories, publishing this book will have been worthwhile.

Somerset born, with more than 20 years aeronautical/defence experience, followed by stints in different education sectors. I enjoy bringing these and my pilot experiences, plus a love of all things mechanical, into my writing. My first exposure to `writing` was as editor of an apprentice magazine, not a stellar beginning, but it fired a beneficial interest throughout my career. As a retired polyglot and polymath, I remain just able to bring a wealth of experience from my 60-odd years to the world of authorship.
