New Stories from Errol

 

The Gastronomateur

Tibby Hayes, gastronomateur and aspiring food critic, covets the Diamond Jublilee Award that will launch his career as preeminent restaurant reviewer in town.

 

The only thing standing between Tibby and certain success is the current number one restaurant reviewer - Tibby's garden-gnome hoarding neighbor - and his neighbor's two ferocious, two-metre long, thirty-kilogram pet lizards.

 

But Tibby Hayes has a plan...

 

Tibby sets out, armed with steaming sausages, to tilt recently-revealed omens a little more quickly in his favor.

 

Jonah and the Piazza Navona

Jonah, a dead-end insurance call center staffer, attempts to evade his self-appointed fiancee, Lilly Minke, and regain a boat of his own.

 

'Sometimes to get where you’re going, Jonah, you’ve got to make all the wrong choices,'  says Norman, Jonah’s perpetual chess buddy and town prophet. 'Having a boat is your destiny.'

 

Jonah battles Lilly and relentless floods to return to his life on a fishing boat.

 

The One Thing Missing at the Casino Atlantis

Oswald’s beloved cache of cheddar has long since run out. His Limburger pulses in his memory, the Muenster lingers only as scent. He's down to his last Gouda.

 

Oswald is a blackjack genius when he's fully topped up with his self-styled wonder drink inside him - but his key ingredient is nowhere to be found at the underwater Casino Atlantis.

 

And Oswald has debts that need to be paid.

 

Oswald faces off against his greatest fear to get the ultimate ingredient that he needs to win at the blackjack tables, pay off his debts and buy the cheese shop of his dreams.
