Author(s): John Bell Thomson
The author refers to his published short stories as lightweight, whimsical sketches of life in the 1920's, written to entertain. Now, ten of them have been salvaged from a tattered book of cuttings and (much to his surprise) republished with a similar intention. Fifty to sixty years ago the stories appealed to the Australian and New Zealand readership of the post-First World War years when outside information and entertainment, apart from a vigorous theatrical industry, the lecture platform and the beginnings of wireless and cinema, were provided by the printed word.
