Literally Stories – Week 61 – Seeing Double


Don’t worry if you can’t work out whether or not you saw double in Week 61.

I can assure you, you did.

No need therefore to visit an Ophthalmologist or a Neurologist or anyone whose job title ends in ologist. Your eyes were not deceiving you. There were two Allisons, but only one Cron, who made  a double appearance, plus a welcome return to Literally Stories by Dave Louden.

Mr. Louden began the week in steely fashion when his MC decided he had what it takes to make it as a porn star. However, The Adventurous Woodsman was not as natural a lumberjack as he might have imagined.

Hugh Cron’s first story this week was An Easy Choice to Make, which appeared on Tuesday. The story title summed up the job of his fellow LS Editors when Mr. Cron asked us to consider his harrowing tale of assisted suicide.

Thursday, Hugh’s tale Phil’s Lament proved a similarly difficult read.

Wednesday Leila Allison’s funny tale of Literary Agents and their long-suffering clients, The Amalgamated Union of Pennames and Imaginary Friends might have had an autobiographical feel to it. We will let you be the judge of that.

LS regular Irene Allison ended the week in her backyard, the Pacific North West, with The Crossed Star of Bethlehem. No donkeys or divine interventions but a whole bunch of equally fascinating events.
