Do you remember those days when you were young, singing in front of the campfire, listening to the stories those around you had to tell? Maybe a parent, maybe a grandparent or a sibling - but whoever it was who told the stories, they told them magnificently. You could close your eyes and see the past, not as it was, but as it should have been. You hung upon every word, and by the time the tale was over, for a day, two days, a week or more the images - the feelings - they stuck with you. They may not have been true stories, but still, the truth lived in them.

Thus is Fables and Reflections. Each tale is woven carefully, fact and fiction melding together to create a new truth. The figures are very real, the settings likewise so - and what unfolds? Well, all writers are liars who still speak a truth.

Magnificent.
