Short Stories, Jim Potts



I am working on a collection of around thirty short stories, which I hope will be published later this year, probably about 60,000 words in length, a little more with the introduction and notes.

The main story locations or settings include Greece, Czechoslovakia, Albania, England, Ireland, Ethiopia, Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, Australia, Bermuda and Sweden. Five are based on the island of Corfu.
