RE: The discussion of Off The Kuf Volume I (contains spoilers)

Having a copy of Off the KUF is like having a box of chocolates - the contents all looks so good it is hard to know where to start, but you know you'll want to try them all in the end. I have read most of the stories (not in order) and am currently enjoying "Blackberry Crumble". All the stories have been good, but my personal favourites are "The Silent Bell" by David Haynes - I love classic horror and have been inspired to pick up a copy of Ballet of the Bones - and I also loved David Wailing's clever story about identity and communication. I love all his names for new technology: I want a KindleBlaze!
All in all a most enjoyable anthology.

How lovely to hear that reading David's work in Off the KUF led you to buy one of his books, Daphne.

Cecilia, I only just saw your comment. Thank you. I'm glad you feel they worked.

Excellent news. Daphne, you'll enjoy the macabre books. When you've read them, you'll be suitably hardened up for The Scream of Angels. *shudders*

Off The Kuf Vol. 1

This post was last modified: 23 Jan 2014 03:35 PM by profnexus.
Finally I have finished the last few stories of this great anthology. The imagination of the authors has kept me entertained for hours and I was surprised that I did not find a single story or Drabble that I did not like. However I did have a few favourites. These are shown in no particular order.
{=Jezza's Feathers by Lexi Revellian=}, {=Christmas in Northmold by Anne Wrightwell=}, {=Intelligence Test by Lynda Wilcox=}, {=The Silent Bell by David Haynes=} and {=Hotspot by David Wailing=}.
So a big thank you to all concerned.
Now, where is Vol. 2?
P.S. Ken's Drabble was very funny.
Love and Laughter!

Thanks for the reminder but I downloaded it ages ago. It's been one of those days David!!!
P.S. Did you see the recent BBC programme CLICK? It was right up your street! Some Guru was explaining what technology would be like in 80/90 years. Apparently contact lenses would be in common usage for sending/receiving signals. As an example they showed a man walking down the street transmitting 'do you want to talk' messages. Does 'Hotspot' come to mind? Time to sue for 'nicking' your ideas.
Love and Laughter!
