New Stories from Errol

 

The Silk Road Marine Shop

'The Silk Road Marine Shop' is Scott’s most ambitious work to date.

 

Wilbert and his unrepentant angel manage a marine chandlery 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 bike riders, 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.   

 

Davey the Birder

'Davey the Birder' follows the daring escape of two best friends from a ship-building village to university to fulfill their 'Pact'.

 

Davey battles retroactive bird-crime guilt: 'Davey had become famous for Medieval Lit chicken ballads and pro-fowl eulogies to every bird he’d ever crushed, all delivered impromptu in the cafeteria lines'.

 

He struggles to retain his scholarship, while dodging Goliath and sharing a home with his childhood friend and a new roommate, the Scrambled Egg King.

 

 

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.
