Unpublished on paper but willing to try new things, he is survived by a Parker click-retractable pen.< Less

More > meet the Judge of Right, Ulysses buys from him Three Wise Counsels that will help them get home.

Readers from Cornwall will easily recognise the story theme of the Three Wise Counsels (ATU type 910B), as it’s the same one used in the well-known Cornish tale ‘Jooan Chei an Horr’.

In Homer's epic poem, The Odyssey, we are told of Odysseus' great adventures following the destruction of Troy - his desperate homeward journey back to his patiently waiting wife and child. Yet he... More > spent seven years of that journey in one place - the island of Ogygia. There he remained with Kalypso until she finally asked him to leave. How could a man known for besting a great Cyclops, defying an enchantress, and bringing about the end of the Trojan war with his great inventive mind, not manage to escape from one 'goddess' for seven years? Could he really have been kept there against his own will? Kalypso may be a minor part in the ancient tale, but it is she who loved the convalescing warrior all those years, and she alone who knows the truth. In her twilight years, before a warming fire and an eager chorus, Kalypso tells her own version of the story and reveals the secrets her love kept from the world...< Less

An End to War An End to Peace is based upon a personal insight that the author had after he returned from the Gulf War: Homer's "The Odyssey" may be a poetic description of what life was...
