Armed and Ridiculous: A Selection of Short Stories

Dedwydd Jones

These scenes from the globe are an odyssey through love, grief, friendship, death, spite, mirth, violence, nightmare and the unknown. They take place variously in fashionable ski resorts in Switzerland; a prestigious language school in Cambridge; an ocean going yacht; a ditch in woodland; David Bowie''s private residence in the Canton de Vaud; the den of a terrorist cell in Holland; mermaids off St David's Head in Wales; the tossing of the caber at the Highland Games in Scotland; all accompanied by tastings from the finest cellars, making for a very heady brew! Armed and Dangerous, the title story of the collection, is a hilaroius black novella on the suthor's military service in the pulverized, beleaguered city of Berlin during the Cold War. The tales are topped off with authentic Celtic Triads and a triumphant Ode to the Welsh Leek.
