New Stories from Errol

 

Diamond Killers

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

 

The Silk Road Marine Shop

Wilbert and his unrepentant gorilla angel manage a marine shop in an oasis town at the edge of the Desert of Final Death.

 

Surviving on income from selling boat supplies adapted to suit passing mountain bikers, he fends off a bookkeeper who is determined to convert his business to a camel wellness spa.

 

Wilbert plots the final "big sale" that will fund the purchase of his dream yacht.   

 

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 utlimate ingredient that he needs to win at the blackjack tables, pay off his debts and buy the cheese shop of his dreams.
