In one, a pilot thinks he might have killed his navigator and looks for him in a "hopeless" quest to find him alive. In another, a male and female academic, flying to Athens for a conference, think they have stumbled on a real mystery but it is really all in the mind, arising from their growing interest in each other. There are also a couple of poetic parodies and various diverting short pieces. The stories are mostly traditional "adventures", strong in story line, dialogue and characterisation. No anger about the world and no politics. There is plenty of emotion and love but no Freudian explanations. Sex there is but it stops at the bedroom door. Don't expect titillation here. Except for two satires on political correctness, they are tales. One critic wrote, "Storytelling is part of human history, a tradition which should be pursued and nourished." "But what are you trying to say?" the author has been asked. The answer is, "Hope you enjoy the story and have a nice day." As for purpose, wasn't it Hemingway who said, "If you have a message, go to Western Union with it."
