Author John Butler releases a delightful and daring dip of short stories titled - Serendipity

A miscellany of over fifty short stories including a gamut from humour, drama, satire, farce and fantasy to contemplative thinking, mystery and the supernatural–take a pick from 'Serendip' for a perfect 'Short or Long Haul', trip!
Nov. 29, 2012 - PRLog -- Being an avid reader of short stories, the author has enjoyed journeying along with the likes of Mark Twain, O’Henry, Maupassant, Frank O’Connor and others of such ilk. Nearer home, writers like Keith Waterhouse, Bill Naughton, Sid Chaplin, Stan Barstow are among his favourites and of course the inimitable P. G. Wodehouse.

In gathering together over the years, this collection of short stories, the author feels somewhat like a campanologist with his carillon of bells – ringing the changes.
In ‘Serendipity’ there is something for everyone. If your taste is humour there are plenty including ‘It’s No Laughing Matter’, ‘Stop! …Don’t Go Any Further’. There are slices of real life in ‘Arthur’, ‘Lanky Franky’, ‘Death of the Hindenburg’ and ‘My Only Sunshine’. There is satire and irreligious ones–written without any malice. In the animal stories ‘The Dog’, ‘The Gulls’ Court’ and ‘The Camel’ the author gives himself full rein and enjoyed exercising anthropomorphism. In short ‘Serendipity’ is the word - take a dip and find your winner.
The author hopes that while reading these stories you will be able to share the enjoyment that he felt when writing them.
Author John Butler says “In this miscellany of fifty or more stories runs the gamut from humour, drama, satire, farce and fantasy to contemplative thinking, mystery and the supernatural. Serendipity embraces all the human emotions. Enjoy it! ”
