What better way to cheer us up on another wet Saturday in Scotland than with two new stories all the way from sun-drenched Cyprus from master McStoryteller, Ron A. Sewell?
A close shave from a climbing accident is the subject of his spooky tale, The Smoking Chimney. And there’s another close shave, this time from the clutches of a vamp, in his crime piece, A Night Ashore.
Enjoy – and watch out tomorrow for our selection of Father’s Day reminiscences.
Now published on the site, three new stories to help pass the time on a dreich Scots Saturday afternoon.
Our favourite Ayrshire scribbler Angus Shoor Caan begins by making us chuckle with Ten to Seven, his tale of a smart queue jumper.
Then that elusive Edinburgh-based writer David D. Sharp treats us to In the Shade, a poignant piece about a trapped vampire.
And courtesy of Glasgow’s very own storyteller Pat Black comes Short Cut, the story of a hillwalker who takes a bit of a fall.
