It read like a literary Guy N. Smith story. Very retro, very spooky.

Nicely done.

Anybody see The Voice  last night? Wow. That show just gets better and better. I'd say three world class performances last night. Mesmerising afro

Congrats Geoff.  afro

I just finished my second story of the year.  cheers  Clocked in at 9,300 words. Only 1,800 words over the max word count.

Limbo isn't sparking any ideas just yet, but I'll see if I can come up with something before tomorrow night.

Just started research for a new story called The Noise. I got off a bus the other day and walked the mile home through a quiet country lane. I heard a whining noise all the way home. I then thought what if everyone heard it all over the world? And it got deeper each day. What if it reaches infrasound and make people ill? Where does it come from? Revenge by whales or from space? I'm  salivating with anticipation of writing it smiley

Meanwhile another of my mad sf stories is published and free to read. I'd be obliged if you hit it and maybe even like the button on it or leave a comment. I've had to apologise to my nearest village of Dodleston, which is obliterated in my tale.

Nice one, Geoff. Loved the detail of the meteorite landing and the immediate aftermath.

Were you a Siberian reindeer in a previous life?

Of interest to our cycling members like Del.
A short illustrated article of mine is in the cycling emagazine, Sevendaycyclist. (only an ezine but it pays £35 per piece) I ride on top of Offas' Dyke in this piece, meeting the Chester Deva Divas and a BBC morning TV presenter. This little lane is my favourite stretch in a lovely part of Wales kind of between Chester and Wrexham and I'm among 1200-year-old landscape shapers.

Some of you migrants to Canada and other interesting places other than UK might know of Offa but in case you're rusty-- Offa's Dyke is 1200 years old and is a ditch and ridge earthwork stretching about 80 miles between what used to be the border between England and Wales. My ride is along a stretch in the northern section. Free to read. Quintessentially British.

Nice read, Geoff. Looks like an interesting site, too - will investigate it sometime. I get a bit fed up with most of the cycling media and magazines these days - they're all about Sportives and £6000 bikes and reviewing the latest £200 pair of shorts and offering training weeks in Majorca and all that. There's nothing out there for those of us who like to  tootle along for 50 miles on the back lanes on an old bike in old gear just for the sake of discovering old villages, beautiful countryside, and eccentric characters!

Just found this in my inbox. A new low for the spammers. Imagine how a naive person might react to this...

Message body
Attention, I am very sorry for you, is a pity that this is how your life is going to end as soon as you don't comply. As you can see we are the members of the Deadly Networks in the world, which is responsible for the bombing of twin [ISO-8859-1?]tower’s in America on Sept. 11th and the bombing of London transport services on July 7th (AL-QAEDA NETWORKS WORLDWIDE), I don't have any business with you, my duty as I am mailing you now is just to KILL you and I have to do it as I have already
been paid for that.
   
Someone who you called your friend wants you dead by all means, and this person have spent a lot of money in this venture, This person came to us and told me that he wanted you dead and he provided us with your name, picture and other necessary information's we needed about you.

So I sent my boys to track you down this including bugging of your phones with satellite tracking devices and they have carried out the necessary investigation we needed for the operation on you, and if you doubt this information am going to give you all the necessary information about you back to you in your next reply so that you can believe me, and my boys are really on you but I told them not to kill you that I will like to contact you and see if your life is important to you and the one of your family. I called my client back and ask him of your email address which I didn't tell him what I wanted to do with it and he gave it to me and I am using it to contact you now. As I am writing you this mail my men are monitoring you and they are telling me everything about you.

Now do you want to LIVE OR DIE? Since all program has be made and draw to kill you. Get back to me now if you are ready to pay some fees to spare your Life, $8,000 is all you need to spend in this process you will first of all Pay $3,000 and then I will send a tape to you which I recorded in every discussion I had with the person who wanted you dead and as soon as you get the Tape,
You will pay the remaining balance of $5,000. If you are not ready for my help, then I will carry on with my job straight-up.

WARNING: DO NOT THINK OF CONTACTING THE POLICE OR EVEN TELLING ANYONE BECAUSE I WILL KNOW ,REMEMBER, SOMEONE WHO KNOWS YOU VERY WELL WANT YOU DEAD! I WILL EXTEND IT TO YOUR FAMILY, INCASE I NOTICE SOMETHING FUNNY ABOUT YOUR TELLING THE SECURITY ABOUT IT BECAUSE A GOOD LOOK IS OUT YOU AT THE MOMENT. DO NOT COME OUT ONCE IT IS 8PM UNTIL I MAKE OUT TIME TO SEE YOU AND GIVE YOU THE TAPE OF ALL DISCUSSION WITH THE PERSON WHO WANT YOU DEAD THEN YOU CAN USE IT TO TAKE ANY LEGAL ACTION. GOOD LUCK AS I AWAIT YOUR REPLY"

A BIT REPETITIOUS, but definitely needs an edit here:-

I called my client back and ask him of your email address

Lash, it's best not to respond directly to such emails because it shows they've hit a real person and can flag up their database as such, leading not more hits from them and others they sell their databases too. They can be reported to various authorities set up to investigate such perpetrators because they are breaking several lawa such as misuse of computers, threats to kill, etc.

If you were to cut my brake cable I'd be in little danger because these days I'd call on passing butterflies to help slow me down Wink
