“I could smell them and hear them long before I could see them. Soon the grove was filled with movement. They came on me from all sides at a rush, as if they had planned to ambush me. But I was not afraid. Far from it. I was filled with joy…”
This diverse collection of sixteen short stories includes murder and mystery, humour and hallucination, poignancy and plotting, fantasy and fun. The characters are varied and compelling and each story leaves you with a thought-provoking ending…
John will read from The Paper Aeroplane Man, take questions, sell and sign books.
