    These are skilful, mischievous and delightful stories: an intoxicating mix. You will find yourself constantly surprised by the endings and relish the author's skill in swift pen portraits and excellent dialogue. This a real find and warmly commended.

    Following on from Dr George & others, Burning Desires, Neil Butter’s latest book of short stories, lives up to that earlier promise. Very entertaining, full of flights of fancy, in touch with our inner dreams, pleasurable but not always pleasant, this latest collection stylishly deals with the truth behind the veneer. His characters appear normal at first but underneath that veneer lie passions of quite a different kind which often lead to scandalous behaviour and surprising endings. The reader feels sympathy with many of the people in these stories – not always from this world – and can find guiltless enjoyment in wishing that some solutions were available to all of us. Mr Butter paints his characters and tells their tales succinctly and wittily. This is very much a book to pick up and read in short bursts, to prolong our enjoyment as long as possible -- maybe a story every night before going to sleep will pep up otherwise dull dreams.
