Starting with A Cuban Affair and Other Short Stories, the author skilfully relates his hilarious adventure on a 'R and R' location for Castro’s rebel forces.

The book's 23 stories are grouped in a way to keep the readers enthralled as they go on a journey of hilarious and bizarre experiences to exotic locations or share, under Viking Tales, the pioneering experiences of the UK and Norway rushing to develop North Sea oil.

But it doesn’t end there as the author unfolds further chaotic tales of woe happening on ‘his watch’.

These include;

  • A misidentification situation with security forces at a major airport
  • A key witness in a bank robbery
  • The first game of golf
  • Observations of a supermarket bag-packer

And many others.

Also included are two amusing letters written through the eyes of a young boy to Santa and the Prime Minister.

A word of warning to the reader. This book is best read on ones own as outbursts of laughter might raise cause for concern from the casual onlooker.


Ian L Prince was born in Oldham in 1946. At the age of seven, he moved to Portsmouth with his family where he stayed until his mid-20s.

For most of his working life, he was employed in the oil and gas industry, which offered him the opportunity for extensive travel. After living in Norway for 13 years, he moved to his current home in Aberdeenshire.

Ian is an ardent lover of ‘Keep Fit’ and regularly seen gyrating at the local Jazzercize venue.

Now, in semi-retirement, Ian still travels extensively both for work and pleasure.

He is the author of The Age of Chaos, a humorous and scathing commentary on the pitfalls of contemporary living. His second novel, The Siege of Pickeltillum, is the hilarious tale of intrigue and chaos in a rural Scottish village.

Ian is also the author of Decommissioning Strategies for the 21st Century, a technical and less-disgruntled work.
