My daydreams often take the form of stories, short or long. I hope that other people will enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them. They are for fun, and offer no message, lesson, or moral insight, but are entertainment, pure and simple. Taken as such, I think they afford the reader very good value. For a pittance, less than a dollar, one may be amused, amazed, cheered and diverted for an hour or a day!
The first set of stories which I’d like to offer tell the tale of a young man as he passes from youth through early manhood. While he is very well off in a conventional sense, his life isn’t without difficulty, whence the stories. Each story is complete in itself. Together they follow James from the end of childhood to the end of his twenties.
To let the reader sample what’s on offer I’ve included a link to one of these stories which may be read without charge.
