Great stuff, Harry.

Nice mixture of short stories and poetry, plus the taster chapter for Tom Fleck, which I have on my waiting list,

Capture of dialect was good.

But what really made it for me was, coming from the same background (I even kicked Marconi into touch in the same place - Hull) you took me straight back into that wireless room. Funny how wireless became radio and now wireless became something else, which I am using even as I write this.

How did you remember all those technical things lik

This book does not have epic sagas about Kings, Princes, or Warriors heroic deeds, it has short snippet-like stories about ordinary, hard working, everyday people, past and present.

The poems are not about anything other than what can be seen, by anyone, in everyday life.

It is an island of calm in the storm wracked, turbulent seas of modern life.

I am so glad I read it.

I loved, loved, loved the short stories, sonnets, and poetry in this volume. My only complaint is that it was over too soon! More, please!

This little anthology is a delightful selection of short stories and verse from the author of Tom Fleck. There are tasters, including an chapter, from the bigger book and other material too. I felt it wasn't quite as polished as Tom Fleck, in that there were little formatting issues, but the work itself was, as you would expect from Harry Nicholson, absolutely captivating. A very good read.

I’m thinking back, trying to discern how I came to write an historical novel. When I was tapping out Morse in the pitching wireless cabins of tropical steamers, it was not in my mind – though I read all the books in the ship’s library. A career in television studios might have brought it about – thirty years working with stories in pictures soaks the mind with images. Now I’ve retired I have more ...more
