King Arthur of Cameldung - political satire

King Arthur of Cameldung and his fabled Sword, Expeditor In the heart of the great nation of Albion lies a swamp. In the middle of which, more or less, is a large hill - very broad, but not so tall – on which has stood for ages beyond memory the great City of Cameldung. The famous city; the royal city; the city of legend; the sinking city ... In fact Cameldung, and more significantly

Morphene: first job - Grandma and the Biscuits

Grandma and the Biscuits Morpheen checked his reflection in a monitor – it felt about right … fairly androgynous, non-threatening, but not inclined to tolerate endless nonsense. It would do. Morpheen left his ship, which was now morphed into the appearance of the derelict camper van he’d bought (to acquire the legitimising paperwork) then sold for scrap, with identifying

humanoids can't theel?

Start with episode 1 :) Morpheen studied its reflection in a monitor. It had successfully morphed into human shape, but there were so many variables - choices, if you like - what age to appear, which social group and the big one - male or female? The human news channels suggested that females were more susceptible to violence and sexual attacks, but they were more ready to converse with each

Bewildering Non-Automatons

Start with episode 1 :) The automatons all left the Cube as the planet's sun moved lower in the sky. Morpheen felt pleased to witness the furrytypes becoming more active. If they were even remotely similar to Morpheens, then they were surely playing. They ventured further from the cover of the thorny bushes, but Morpheen stayed put, hoping to see more native species and gain the first

Morpheen discovers the FurryTypes

Morpheen changed shape into a large elastic sphere as its vehicle entered the atmosphere. At first it was a rough ride, as the atmosphere thickened and the vehicle rapidly lost speed. Then the noise and buffeting calmed, and Morpheen slimmed its sphere and extruded limbs. It settled into a seat by the primary console and morphed the vehicle into a parachute shape to stabilise the descent,

When new cars TV holidays leave you empty

When Albert first renovated an old car - when he was still in his teens - he felt an immense sense of freedom. Even then insurance was a ripoff, so he only used it for late summer - July through September. The only experience that matched it for liberty was later, when he lived "off grid", as it were, in a caravan - no rent, no services, close to nature. Slowly, some would say inexorably, the

Lesson in manners whilst moving house

Clearly I don't understand sophisticated company (!): Recently, while helping someone move house, I had to ask the new owner if I could use her toilet. The new owners had arrived early ...

idollartry political satire - money infects democracy

idollartry Of course, no one knew this was about to happen, but a critical mass of people – all ages, both genders, from all countries, some rich, many poor, and most completely indifferent – were carrying the image of a sane, creative, empathic future society. Then there was one more. Suppose the critical mass was one million people (and, for all we know, non human mammals). The million

creepy parking ... and piles satire

Mr Creepy  retrieved his tobacco from under the settee while his wife was busy in the bathroom. He’d brought her back from town and was pleased to discover his parking space across the road hadn’t been taken. No sooner had he reminisced his good fortune, squatting by the settee, than he heard the sound of a large vehicle coming to a standstill outside his house. The road was a dead-end, and

Ivor and Paul were chatting in the barn, out of the (rather unusual) blazing sun, when Ivor's grandson arrived. Ivor made a big deal of greeting him, very warmly, and Paul raised an eyebrow. Alex looked up now and then and smiled, but mostly frowned, his gaze downcast. Ivor caught Paul's quizzical expression and gave the tiniest nod, which Paul had learned to interpret as "trust me, I’ll
