My Short Stories

11th April 2020. In these days of enforced isolation/quarantine/lockdown/curfew – call it what you will – I have decided to utilise my time productively (in addition to working one day each week at our medical clinic and continuing my university teaching job doing lectures and tutorials online one day each week) by writing short stories.

This will be a good opportunity – as that Duke said in As You Like It, “Sweet are the uses of Adversity!”.

I shall start putting pen to paper – or finger to keyboard – to make use of all those ideas and products of my imagination that were waiting to be written “when i have the time”.

There will be a new story added each week for the foreseeable future.
