Rags to Riches. Not. — Tony Rogers
A few lessons learnt from Bikwil.

Winter Harvest — Bet Briggs
" . . . to savour winter's flowering . . ."
A Word in Your Pink Shell-like — Harlish Goop
"This time it's a consonant which sometimes causes problems for learners that I'd like to look at — though, as you’ll see, the trouble it causes for the foreign student is by no means the only noteworthy thing about it.  Actually, it's a pair of consonants we're dealing with here: both are written th, but the sound is slightly different in each."
Here's another English sound that sometimes causes problems.
Jacob's Ladder — Michael Buhagiar
A poet in the library.
Bone on Bone — Tony Rogers
"As I've mentioned, the physio-hydro roster varies from one day to the next. I have reluctantly come to believe that this is no accident, nor, despite appearances, ungrounded in reason, but a carefully planned tactic mounted against boredom and complacency. You can deduce this from the hospital brochure, which quite openly warns that prospective visitors should always ring the patient the night before, in case they arrive when you're exercising."
Part 2: our editor finally stops talking about his operations.
Mary Bennet — Jennifer Paynter
Part 11 of our serialised novella.
Web Line — Tony Rogers
Quintessential Quirky Quotes
Comic and Classic, from Everywhere and Everywhen
From the Back Verandah — Fizzgig
