 Its a while since I have had something up on my blog. So I thought it time to stick something up.

Here is a poem by a very famous Irish writer called Oliver Gold Smith. 

The Village Schoolmaster

Beside yon straggling fence that skirts the way
With blossom'd furze unprofitably gay,
There, in his noisy mansion, skill'd to rule,
The village master taught his little school;
A man severe he was, and stern to view,
I knew him well, and every truant knew;
Well had the boding tremblers learn'd to trace
The days disasters in his morning face;
Full well they laugh'd with counterfeited glee,
At all his jokes, for many a joke had he:
Full well the busy whisper, circling round,
Convey'd the dismal tidings when he frown'd:
Yet he was kind; or if severe in aught,
The love he bore to learning was in fault.
The village all declar'd how much he knew;
'Twas certain he could write, and cipher too:
Lands he could measure, terms and tides presage,
And e'en the story ran that he could gauge.
In arguing too, the parson own'd his skill,
For e'en though vanquish'd he could argue still;
While words of learned length and thund'ring sound
Amazed the gazing rustics rang'd around;
And still they gaz'd and still the wonder grew,
That one small head could carry all he knew.
But past is all his fame. The very spot
Where many a time he triumph'd is forgot.

I have some stories up on the excellent TwistandTwain website 

This is a story of four very angry and very dangerous small men.

Called: The Tales Of The Angry Inch Crew.

On Talkingsoup I have a new story up called Losing It

As I contribute a lot to the Talkingsoup website  I thought it appropriate to add a link to all my stories on that platform.

In Search of 53 German Student Girls was my last one up on the site.

A story of Dublin in the 70s and the fruitless search for 53 Student girls reported to be heading for Kinsale Cork

Find it and many more by clicking the link below.

Back on Talking Soup

I am back up on with my story.

Kensington and the Russian Billionaires Daughter

A story of how a very simple Connect a Printer to a PC, turned into my biggest nightmare.
Luckily it all turned out OK in the end.
But for a time it was touch and go whether I'd succeed or end up in a body-bag.

All my Talking Soup stories can be found here:

I am now to be found for the most on where I blog about everything under the Sun.
And I get paid if some one likes my story/stuff.

Since I signed up I have earned around $2400. So do yourselves a favour. Signup and start Blogging.
Mark Zuckerballs is never going to pay you a dime for posting stuff on FaceBalls.

I have posted a lot of my short stories on Steemit and this is where I have earned most of my $$$.

The amount shown on your account is the $$ equivalent of the Cryptocurrency Steem.

To convert your Steem you will need to first convert it to Bitcoin and from there to $$$.

It sounds harder that it actually is.

The story of how Bitcoin came about is one for the X-Files.

Bitcoin was designed to be a peer-to-peer currency, free from interference from government and central banks. Since the currency was launched in 2009.

Satoshi Nakamoto is the name used by the unknown person or persons who designed bitcoin and created its original reference implementation.As a part of the implementation, he also devised the first blockchain database. In the process he was the first to solve the double spending problem for digital currency. He was active in the development of bitcoin up until December 2010.
Nakamoto has claimed to be a man living in Japan, born on 5 April 1975.However, speculation about the true identity of Nakamoto has mostly focused on a number of cryptography and computer science experts of non-Japanese descent, living in the United States and Europe.

As of 14/05 2017, Nakamoto is believed to own up to roughly one million bitcoins, with a value estimated at over US$ 1,767,510,000 - Which is a pretty large number.

Nakamoto has also disappeared. So nobody knows who he was where he came from or where he is now. Does he have access to what is now a Modern Day Templar Fortune.

Happy to report my story "Copenhagen Assault" is for sale on Amazon and other platforms in the three story issue called Pulpternative

Cowboy of the Dakotas by Gordon Dymowski

The Totem of the Cursed by Dragan Stajic

Copenhagen Assault by Frank Sonderborg

Copenhagen Assault is set in an alternative world where the UN run everything. The Black Krew are called in by Liam O'Neil who works for a section of the Irish secret service section called "The Bureau" to save his ass.
Throw in a long a lost Nazi Wunderweapon and the involvement of a hyper secret Vatican organization called  S.I.V or "Servizio Informazioni del Vaticano" and its time for some serious ass kicking. 

I just love the cover. If you don't just love a Cowboy riding a Dinosaur well.......

I have to thank Tommy Hancock and Pro-Se team for getting this over the line.



An innovative publisher of Genre Fiction, Pro Se Productions announces the release of a unique anthology. Three authors tackle the concept of Alternative History, the Alternative being cast in a rather pulpish light.
 PULPTERNATIVE is now available from Pro Se Productions, featuring the work of Gordon Dymowski, Frank Sonderborg, and Dragan Stajic, in print and digital formats.

“History,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “is fun for writers. One of the more engaging aspects is the ability to take what has happened and tweak it, rewrite it, or even scrap it and start over. PULPTERNATIVE gives three authors the opportunity to look at actual history and essentially recreate it into something that would be more likely to appear in a Classic Pulp magazine than a textbook. These stories go full on with no limits into the past and history will never be the same!”

History is full of Wonderful Stories and Fantastic Mysteries. And One Question can make History so much more…. What If…? PULPTERNATIVE asks that question, giving three authors the imaginative task of answering it. Putting a Pulpy spin on history makes anything possible. Explore what might have been in PULPTERNATIVE. From Pro Se Productions.

Featuring a absurdly terrific cover by Larry Nadolsky and print formatting and book design by Antonino Lo Iacono, PULPTERNATIVE is available now at Amazon at Pulpternative - Softcover Edition and Pro Se’s own store at: 

The alternative history collection is also available as an Ebook, designed and formatted by Lo Iacono and available for only $2.99 for the Kindle at Pulpternative - Ebook Edition… and for most digital formats via Smashwords at
