A Girl on the Run
A lost Boy in the Dunes
A father searching for a lost daughter...

Marikka woke suddenly.  It was a warm night, the air unusually thick and cloying.  The house was eerily quiet.  She found she’d kicked the blankets off the bed, looked down for Deacon, puzzled he wasn’t sprawled on the floor as usual ... 

Train Compartment
The Human Train

Kim Farleigh
“It’s money, tickets, passport, torch,” Jones said. "The essentials for travelling. True travellers," Jones said, "use torches."

A Natural Selection
Anne Greenwood

"Be quiet."
"What now?" Matt griped. They’d barely moved at all in the last hour. All he wanted to do was go down and watch Sponge Bob.
Turn Right at Souldrop
Gareth Draper

Jeremy slammed on his breaks as he approached the disused petrol station that stood by the side of the road on the left, narrowly avoiding the crawling car in front.

Mansfield Park
Mansfield Park, by Jane Austen
Madeleine Collis

Mansfield Park takes the feminine ideal in a direction so far north of any modern reality it’s almost unfathomable to believe in such a world.

Great fleas have little fleas upon their backs to bite 'em and little fleas have lesser fleas ...ad infinitum - Augustus de Morgan
