The Old Man on the Green has been published today on T Gene Davis's Speculative Blog.
This story is the first of what I hope may be a series of tales set in the fictional Lincolnshire village of Micklethwaite, where life is lived at a slow pace and close to nature. Of course this does not mean that exciting events never happen there.
I should be very pleased to hear what readers think of the story, which was one that I really enjoyed researching and writing.
It is an interesting thing (at least to me) how often a speculative story demands extensive research. I do like to feel that I have my facts consistent even if sometimes I have to make them up!
