Number 19 in my lockdown stories. This is one I wrote earlier and have just revised: famous last words. It’s a tribute to all of the post war writers who were lucky enough to have lots of options for their stories and who wrote quickly and efficiently to fill the voracious columns of papers and magazines. Some of them are mentioned in the story and if you want to learn more look at biographies of Gerald Kersh or Jack Trevor Story or read Mike Moorcock’s semi autobiographical fantasy The Whispering Swarm
The option is till open if you want to suggest ideas for future stories – which will be published in book form post lockdown with the profits going to a local food bank. Just send a genre, character and location to me via email@example.com or my facebook page tim newton anderson.
