Short Story Volumes
Stories From Elsewhere County Vol1.
mystery and murder stories.
Elsewhere County appears deceptively ordinary. It can be unwittingly glanced out of the corner of one’s eye. An intuitive itch or oddly pricked curiosity might be a precursor to its discovery. It is found by few in the most mundane of places, perhaps in a shoddy corner café, the local station or an innocuous narrow side streets. It resembles any place we care to frequent, but that is where similarities end and Elsewhere County begins. Prepare to have your belief suspended.

One Angry Poet
Poetry, thoughts, words and ramblings.
It is said that there is nothing new under the old sun. Just as quotes from so called great and or good thinkers, which the latter must be stated, have words that are as resounding today as in their day; to be forthcoming, honest and open in word and thought, requires a courage to look within judiciously, and express without fear of the petulant opinionted, and so called educated world. A world where bigotry, misandry, misogyny, elitism, intolerance and degeneracy of every shade, culture and type are touted like entitlement under every banner from the top, to the bottom of the perverse pyramid of this system. It is not without irony that the Romans called the sewers, the system.
Articles, news items, science, travel and even a splash of satire
What if important facts you were taught had shaky foundations,
would you prefer comfortable deceptions or unccomfortable truths?
Articles with insight, and some daring to ask the questions mainstream journalism now rarely approaches as it regurgitates edited establisment associated press releases, enforces bizarre cencorship, choice finger picks information, and calls it professional journalism and news. Propaganda by a different name.
“If people in the media cannot decide whether they are in the business of reporting news or manufacturing propaganda, it is all the more important that the public understand that difference, and choose their news sources accordingly.” – Thomas Sowell, American economist, social theorist, political philosopher, and author.
“If you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you're mis-informed.” - Mark Twain.
"Laziness has become the chief characteristic of journalism, displacing incompetence."- Kingsley Amis.
