Endings

They say that there is at least one book in everyone; I'm hoping that for me this is the first of many. Artistes publish their memoirs presumably as a record of their life to leave behind, so that they are not forgotten; and so it is with anything that I write now or in the future. Language is at the very heart of civilisation, it is the way we communicate, and all written material is the method we use to record knowledge and teach the next generation. Not that this book will teach anyone anything, although in my defence I would add that some of the stories do contain facts that are not commonly known. This is merely a book of short stories that have been written to entertain the reader by creating tales that have an unexpected ending. Hence the title of the book. The challenge for the reader is to guess the end of each story before reaching the last page.
