The Wheel of Fortune   Other Stories

This is my tenth collection of short stories. An elderly man becomes ?news? after he writes about his encounter with Ernest Hemingway in Pamplona years ago. A writer holidaying in West Texas meets James Dean in Marfa years after the latter's supposed death. A postal clerk remembers selling a stamp to John Wayne who was filming in London. A reporter traces the ex-chauffeur of a gangster to learn his story. A British Lord worries about his accident prone wife who has gone skiing in the Scottish Borders. A mystery writer becomes a witness in a local murder. A strange ship loads an odd cargo in a port. A mute, nameless man becomes a patient in a psychiatric hospital. A sunken treasure is found off the coast of Florida during a Presidential political campaign. They are a mixed bag of old and new, some semi-autobiographical or humourous, all intended to entertain.
