Silicon Tales is a collection of short stories that I would have liked to have on my bedside table when I was working in the corporate world. They are adult dream tales, designed to switch the brain to a different way of thinking before sleep. They’re hypnotic and twisty and deliberately left open for interpretation. They work through some pretty big issues but in a soft focused way, ideally helping the reader store some thoughts that may have been troubling them. Well, a writer can dream!
I’ve been contacted by readers who find themes in them that I never contemplated. That’s still mind-blowing to me. It shows the power of a few words, and a few minutes of reading a story in the right sort of mindset.
It shows that adults aren’t too old for bedtime stories too.
