Hosted Stories

I am selecting only excellent stories to host here. We are critical of the stories sent to us. By no means all make the grade. They are chosen for totally arbitrary reasons. Some may have particular merit. Some may be literary gems. Some may catch my imagination. Some remind me of me. Some are simply "different". All hosted authors are the copyright owners of their own material. Copyright is not always explicitly mentioned in a posted story, but is always the author's property.

The mark of a good story is not grammar, not syntax, not even spelling. It's the ability of the author to get into your heart.

The authors here have been selected for that merit alone. The ability to reach somewhere special, and to make you live their tale as if it were you. Some make me laugh, other make me weep But all get through my defences.

Write to each of them if you like their work. Please? As a favour to me?

The index of authors

There is no right way of doing this, so I have chosen the following scheme, just like your local lending library:

I reserve the right to get it wrong! But that scheme is my intention. If you find anything that seems out of order please feel free to email the webmaster. It's all to do with Afferbeck Lauder.
