This is the latest of my lockdown stories – The ‘Pataphysical Detectives.
It is one of my stories of the London Institute of ‘Pataphysics – not the real organisation of which I’m a member, but what it could be in an ideal world. Although I’ve tried a bit harder to use some of the pioneering techniques developed by pataphysical writers it’s still a bit of a grab bag of jokes, cultural references and random ideas I can’t be bothered to develop properly, so it doesn’t pretend to be a proper story.
Like all of the other lockdown stories it will be published when revised in a book whose profits will go to a local food bank. I’m still open to suggestions for other stories if you email the genre, main character and location to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment at the bottom of this post.
If you do enjoy the story there are more in my e-book The Cat Factory and Other Stories.
