For some reason Goodreads has this book as #4 in the Chronicles of Narnia and it isn’t it’s #6, so I hope that can be corrected. #4 = Prince Caspian. Prince Caspian is in this book although he’s King Caspian X whose son Prince Rilian has disappeared. Eustace Scrubb and Jill Pole escape from bulliesContinue reading “The Silver Chair – Review – CS Lewis”

How the Yeti was named and other stories.

I have written eleven stories including the obituary of a former flying ace who died along with his guide dog as they free-climbed Mount Robson. There’s a rejection letter to William Shakespeare for his play “Hamlet” and an explanation for the building of Silbury Hill in England. I also researched, from ancient texts, the storyContinue reading “How the Yeti was named and other stories.”

Book Review – Day of the Triffids

This is the classic catastrophe novel of the 20th Century and I appreciate the ending where there seems to be little room for optimism for the human race. There’s no cavalry coming to the rescue here, everyone on Earth is either dead, blind, or going back to basics for the rest of their lives. It’sContinue reading “Book Review – Day of the Triffids”
