Saf-Tee First!

I have been a way for a while. In that time I wrote this short story, with a view to sending it into an anthology. While the publishers told me they liked it (yay), they didn’t select it (not so much yay). But still, I wrote a story about aliens, which is something I wouldn’t have done otherwise (I don’t overly like sci-fi literature) AND I got some very useful constructive feedback from some other local writers, which is always a good thing. It was the first time time I actually submitted my work to anything like that, and it won’t be the last! Onward and upwards!

This story is about mankind’s first (well, technically nineteenth) contact with a group of extremely advanced extra-terrestrials…it’s called Saf-Tee First. Enjoy!

One Ring to Rule Them All, and in Craigavon Bind Them

Another one from the vaults…this one has been updated slightly to correspond with the ridiculous situation Northern Irish government finds itself in i.e. there hasn’t been one for two years. I think this might actually be better than the current state of affairs….

Catholic Church In Ireland Finally Admits Role In Dinosaur Mass Extinction

Further to my previous post, here is another article from my old Flipping Out blog. At the time I was trying to go for a News Thump or The Onion style news article style blog. I will be uploading them to this site over the next few days, and most follow a similar ‘fake news’ format.
