bookshelves: short-stories

Jumble Tales is a collection of thought-provoking short stories. They offer snapshots of the lives of characters who have the everyman's interest in music or sport or work, yet who are unusual in some way. Often the main character has to deal with some piece of good or bad fortune that reverses during the course of the story.

There is the man who scores the winning goal in a football match, the members of a pub band who get lucky when it ought to be too late, an overprotective father, a corporate hitman, a mindreader. There are men responsible for local security; others who are responsible for global security. Bargains are made that have consequences for those making them.

Whether set in the future or the present, whether realistic or fantastic, all the stories have a neat twist at the end. I liked the way that each one had an idea behind it.
