Ol ’75

Doug has (had) a contest going: write a 75 word story….. here.

The comment thread for it is … here.

My first entry is a take on the Thousand and One Nights…. the second echoes Conan Doyle. I’ve taken the lazy writers’ path, using a back story that the literate reader will recognise straight away so that I don’t have to soak up unnecessary verbiage in scene-setting. It’s a wheeze that the writers of syndicated Star Trek paperbacks have made an art form.

UPDATE: I won, wow!
