Short Stories

Strange CompanyMy father wrote at least nine short stories at various times, varying in length from 1,000-20,000 words. Titles include Malmansion, Denny Oat and the Life Thrust, and The Time Has Come.

At one stage he submitted them for publication together, under the title Strange Company, with a cover he designed (illustrated). Malmansion won an award and was published by South East Arts.
