From country bars, back seats of cars
and colonies on Mars,
there’s tales to be told.


Three dozen such tales spanning irony,
pathos and humour from here and there
are presented in no particular order.


So, start anywhere
for your first ten minutes of distraction
from the cares of life.

Keith Cornwell studied both engineering and philosophy as an undergraduate student in London. Engineering led to his gainful employment as a researcher, teacher, Professor, Dean and such things in Edinburgh and latterly the in Middle East. Philosophy led to wondering what it is all about.

His writing has been largely scientific non-fiction and this is his first venture into the realms of fiction. Here on Mars he has the freedom to probe accepted earthbound ideas of the meaning of life.

  • John Grant

    If you only have the odd moments to read for leisure each day, you will find this book a delight. While each story is complete in itself, they do seem to have a theme running through them. This leaves you wondering about some aspect of life. A well-crafted collection of stories you will not easily forget---bring on the next set.

  • Thought provoking short stories

    This is a great book to have in your carry bag or coffee table. A selection of short stories to take you away from the humdrum of waiting rooms, on hold, uninvited guests and other such dull time wasting moments.
    Start anywhere, read what you like. Some stories are whimsical, some amusing, some allegorical but mostly they are thought provoking parables of modern morality.
    Definitely worth reading and sharing.

  • Dr T Berg

    If you are on the lookout for great storytelling but don’t want to commit to a full-length novel, then this book is for you. An eclectic mix of amusing, allegorical and whimsical whilst offering the occasional ominous moral outlook makes for interesting reading. From the idealistic to the ridiculous with prescient prediction of human idiosyncrasies, it’s all there. Read what you like, when you like, if you like.
    Definitely worth reading and sharing.
