  1. Unusually, I have been asked by a new member to post a story on his behalf.
    I am unable to take any responsibility for the grammar, spelling, and certainly not for the content.
    It is also possible that Bleda might choose not to accept it, but that remains to be seen.
    For myself I think that it should be included if only to make up the numbers, After all, you don’t have to vote for it if you don’t want to.
    It is called ‘And it was Some Topic’ and was written by a chap called ‘Algy Musth’ (which, between you and me I happen to know is one of the pseudonyms used by Algernon Fortesque, the Fifteenth Duke of Mudchester), 🙂

    You should be able to find it here …


  2. I’m afraid I’ve failed this month. Had an idea but had what I suspect is dose of flu after a flu jab last week – I was “upgraded” to the heavier over 65 dose as my birthday falls in early December. Feeling rough over the weekend and spent most of today in bed asleep


  3. Hello everybody, as September is a free topic, here are three stories that I wrote some time ago:

    “Towards the edge” (
    “Fairy tale endings and new beginnings” (
    “Changes at The Walnut Tree” (

    Looking forward to reading your stories.
