From biblical times to the Bristol riots of 2011, each of these stories take you into a different world, and as you travel in time, so you travel around the world, from darkest Africa to Buckingham Palace, from a Butlins holiday camp to Hell. Stories vary in length from 50 to 2,500 words, so whether you have five minutes or half an hour, pour yourself a drink, put your feet up, and enjoy over 50 short stories containing more twists than a Chubby Checker concert. From the innocent question ‘Mummy, where do babies come from?’ to the search for eternal youth: join royalty, children, teenagers, mums, dads, grandparents, vampires and superheroes as they face the stress and strains of everyday life. Love affairs begin and end, relationships are laid bare, and sometimes, blood is spilled. Romance, horror, an abundance of humour, and possibly the world’s worst practical joke idea (page 109), are all here in these reflections of normal (and abnormal) life. You may guess a few story endings, but I will surprise you, often. ENJOY.
