Wild & Improbable Tales – Equilibrium

Empires rose and fell but still the wall stood strong. When the most advanced technologies of Earth stuttered and failed, the wall remained, standing sentry over a land that retreated back under the cover of nature. Unseen, she stood with it. Hair of golden grasses streaked with green, skin of warm brown earth, eyes the [...]

Wild & Improbable Tales – Which Way Up?

A Thrill Of Recognition

Back in November - in amongst the chaos of NaNoWriMo - a very lovely thing happened that I'm only now getting chance to savour and respond to.

Wild & Improbable Tales – A Ghost Of Warmth

At first, it looks like a room full of people. With a languorous certainty, they circulate, moving like the inexorable grace of a glacier, the entrancing dance of the fire. And then you notice something strange: there are no heads, no hands, no legs. They are a sea of jumpers and sweaters, moving as though [...]
