Beyond the Cogs

I’ve been standing in my lounge now for nearly an hour. You ever done that? Just stood there. Doing nothing. I got home from work. Came in. And just stood there. I wasn’t thinking about anything. Or, maybe I was feeling something. Ideas are hard to explain. You don’t think in words, or maybe you…

Gallot

Gallot knew things. Ask him and he’ll confirm it. “Gallot,” you’ll say, “I hear you know things.” “What do you know?” he’ll likely reply. Gallot was a simple man, in my opinion. He wore this weird coat that had too many pockets and only one sleeve. I think he found it in a charity shop….

The Acronym Game – An Experimental Book Promo

I was driving home from work, it was a long drive, when I got stuck behind a lorry for about half an hour. I decided I would use this time to try and work out what the acronym on the back of it meant: DFDS
