Of Robots & War (Short Story) Published
My latest short story, "Of Robots & War", published in The Shallow Tales Review "Paranature" #37 January 2022.
Of Robots & War:
A family in rural South Africa, during the Second World War, is faced with the emotional hardship of their father’s return from a prisoner-of-war camp.
Mary Charman reflects on her family’s life, on their rural farm in South Africa, during the Second World War. It is shortly after their father has returned as an escaped prisoner of war in 1942 and her mother and three brothers have little understanding of what this man has survived. While Mary keenly watches the altered dynamics of the family around her, her older brother, Connell, in particular, will do whatever he can to get his father “back”.
