MY OWONGOO NONSENSE.
It started with very early man, or a hominid who wasn't quite a man, and I called him Owongo and when I'd had enough of him I killed him off. But there were other sagas revolving in my mind (you know, in the few minutes between getting into bed and actually going to sleep – my wife says it isn't even minutes where I'm concerned, but it's long enough for ideas to be given birth), so I moved to a forerunner of mankind about whom very little is really known – Neanderthal man. He was around for longer than our own species has been around, archaeological evidence indicates his brain may well have been larger than our own (though, they say, size isn't everything) and he fascinates me.
So I moved down the line of the late and rather great Owongo and came to Owongoo, and it transpires that a) he was, spookily enough, also an ancestor of mine and b) Owongo was an ancestor of his!! Now I've got him and his ilk flooding through Europe, with many an idle quip or blood-curdling adventure on the way!
There are always fresh readers cropping up, so I thought I'd present a list of episodes so far, starting with a link to the complete Owongo stories. I limit the length of each to around 800 words, so there's no pain in reading them!
Then on to the Owongoo stuff:
There we have my outpourings thus far. I only write the stuff for fun and I hope that it's read in the same blessed frame of mind. That's around 46 very short stories for you to savour or mock or just read!!
