Worts 'n' All
by Stewart MacInnes
Worts 'n' All is a collection of short stories I've written over the years; more than I care to say. Some of the stories I wrote with a friend or two which brings back memories of evenings discussing ideas of plots and characters. A lot of these stories were published in small press magazines which were once in abundance in the days before the internet. One by one though these small press magazines ceased publication and to my knowledge none of the ones I subscribed to exist today.
The stories are a mixed bunch. Ghosts, love, adventure, social injustices and environmental concerns are all featured in this book but there's also humorous stories and a few which are just plain silly.
I had to decide what order the stories should be in. I could have blocked each type together or I could have separated the ones I wrote by myself from those written with friends. I decided though to arrange each story in alphabetical order which I concluded was not only the simplest thing to do but is as a good an order as any.
This book of short stories are ideal reading for when you've got five minutes or so to spare as they can be read from start to finish in a short space of time.
