The stories in this book touch upon the author’s own life and his sense of humour and wide-ranging interests.

‘By the Waters of Stepney Green’ is half historical recollection, half romantic dream.

‘Gilda’, a story set in Burma in World War II, will keep you reading well into the night.

‘Gareth’ is the story of a young man from orphanage to officer and tells how deep friendship can emerge from enmity, while ‘Chess Board Execution’ is a story of love, deception and revenge.

These stories will appeal to all readers who enjoy a mixture of genres and moods.
