HOLD ON TO YOUR COMICS AND MAGS -- The future's only round the corner

I’m pretty sure there are many like me who have a predisposition to hoard. The Aladdin’s Cave of any home is the attic or loft where all the unwanted stuff gets piled away and is forgotten — out of sight, out of mind. My attic is the home to many of my kids’ (now grown up) old toys and comics, lovingly preserved and…

YOUR THOUGHTS RECORDED -- FOR EVER

A THOUGHT: The act of thinking; the exercise of the mind in any of its higher forms; reflection; cogitation. 



"All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him,… Continue

MEADOWMANIA -- GOOGLE, ARE YOU WATCHING?

THE MEADOW by Mike O'Hare and Elfreda Pretorius. Available at most of the usual book outlets, including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Borders, Chapters etc. There is a whole new world created when the marketing machine gets into gear. Here's where it's important to get the right image and interest going with the intention of creating a sound or an image that will stick. Of course, once the book has been read, everything changes course and a more subtler approach is… Continue

THE PHYSICAL MEADOW -- By Mike

“The Meadow” has been written in a very extraordinary way. For example, there was never any intention to bring the story into manuscript format. It was only after my encounter with Elfreda that it became a reality and, between us, we prized the idea out of my head and onto a hard drive.

THE SPOTTED COW

No guessing what the title is referring to. The Spotted Cow probably fits into the top ten of country pub names that are dotted around the UK and Channel Islands. However, there is one Spotted Cow which has a relevance and energy all of its own. In years to come, I wonder how much of this short story holds an irony which proves very special.



"The Meadow" novel features locations all around the world, and different times in history. Its characters are more than colourful… Continue
