Delivered magazine is now being delivered. There’s a comp in it and prizes for the top 3. So if anyone has bought a copy or read it over someone’s shoulder, I’d be honoured if you’d consider voting for my Camera Shy story.
Camera Shy first saw light on the BeWrite community and this is its first outing since. Based in Paris it is a humorous take on a thief stealing a tourist’s camcorder. The victim leaps on the thief’s abandoned (stolen) bicycle and chases him into the Metro. Only at the end is the truth revealed about why the victim is sooo keen to retrieve the recorded film and why his wife may not believe him…
You email Michael the owner and name the top 3 in your opinion to the email at
They are seeking more short stories of under 3000 words so if you want to submit a piece it wouldn’t do you harm to spend £3 on a copy (inc p&p)
Just by chance I notice that another of the writers in Delivered is Gustavo Bondoni, who writes terrific science fiction stories – so good we’ve published two already in Escape Velocity mag. Good to share a literary magazine with you, Gustavo!
Vic and I, from Peoples-Connections Chester walking group, enjoyed a great hike around Aber Falls yesterday. Poor turnout from the group but I’d rather a few than a marching army. My original plan was to heave ourselves up to the summit of Drum and then ridge walk Foel Fras, Moel Llwytmor and down to Aber Falls, but we didn’t. Why? The ice-line was around 750 metres, and I don’t mean crunchy loverly snow, but slippery hard ice along with a gale to blow us inside out and off the summit across to Ireland. So after we returned via the Roman Road, we did a lower level hike to the falls and over to the North Wales Coastal Path back to the coastal village of Abergwyngregyn. Vic said I could photograph him with the falls dramatically gushing behind him.
