... the Statistically Improbable. That’s the name of our latest story, designed to make you smile on a Saturday. It comes hot off the pen of Aberdeen-based adopted Scot and writer par excellence, Bill Kirton.
Two salutary tales for McStorytellers fans this Friday afternoon.
First up, Dalmuir-born exile-in-England Alasdair McPherson digs into his memoirs to bring us Nothing But The Truth, a (possibly) true story of Biblical importance.
Then Angus Shoor Caan, our favourite Ayrshire scribbler, provides us with Kung Fu Hoody, a highly topical piece about the fate of Hoody and his Hoody mates. If only that one were true!
Enjoy the weekend!
A rainy Sunday afternoon in Scotland brings four brand new stories from McStorytellers.
In Hame’s Best and Dream On, Dalmuir-born Lincolnshire exile Alasdair McPherson returns with another couple of wry pokes at the Over-45’s Sports Club.
Then Glasgow’s very own Pat Black treats us to a wee gem of a story called The Heidie.
And hot off the press comes Old Flames And Time Machines, a sad tale of writer’s angst from the pen of Grangemouth son and Greek exile Andrew McCallum Crawford.
A little package of treats from McStorytellers today.
Dalmuir native and exile-in-England Alasdair McPherson returns with more of his gentle observations in two pieces, Wall-to-Wall Sunshine and Geriatric Olympics.
Honorary Scot and up-and-coming author Kristen Stone also returns with some probing questions in If The World Hadn’t Changed.
Then it’s the turn of our favourite Ayrshire scribbler Angus Shoor Caan, who serves up a delightful children’s story about magpies called Trinket.
