    JFK's Secret Meth Habit

    Methamphetamines were often used, up to the late 1960s to counteract the effects of opiate-based painkillers. In fact, in some European countries, they are still used medicinally and one of their major uses is to allow higher levels of painkillers to be administered that would otherwise be possible.
  2. Fifty years ago I heard a piece of radio broadcasting which I have always considered to be on of the best pieces ever broadcast. It was originally broadcast on the 9th of June 1968. Today the BBC re-broadcast Alister Cooke's "Letter from America" about the assassination of Robert Kennedy. You can listen to it here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0b49549 I think the message it is giving is as relevant today, if not more so, than it was fifty years ago. Nigel

    Leopard Hunt by Graeme

    Well, we have the start of another story in the Leopard series. So far, we only have the prologue, though if that is anything to go by the rest is going to be very interesting. Then again, all the Leopard stories have been entertaining and interesting. They have also been well written, so we have something to look forward to.

    Obituary - Barbara Bush

    I strongly suspect they may be avoiding saying people have died just in case they have not. They have made that mistake a few times in the past.

    Haywood's Journey Complete

    I am a bit annoyed with Amazon about this. Have the first two stories on my Kindle and had a watch set for the third, but did not get a notification from Amazon of publication. Just be on the site and purchased it.

    Guarded

    Hi Mike, I had already emailed Wayne and suggested he submit it to AD. I had a reply that he was looking at self-publishing it.

    The Right to Remain Silent by Cole Parker

    Yes, considering it was meant to be a short story. N

    The Right to Remain Silent by Cole Parker

    Cole, one of the serial novels I am working on "Living with Johnny" is now approaching its end. Just written chapter 61, suspect I have ten more chapters to do, then the epilogue. Then it is down to re-writing and editing. Hope to get it finished this summer.

    Separate Tongues

    Well, the latest news on the project is that it is now fully funded. From some emails I got I suspect a few members of the AD Forums have made a contribution to its funding. Hopefully, we will see the results sometime in the future.
  12. What can one say about this story other than it is classic Cole Parker. A really interesting story, well told, which is enjoyable to read. Highly recommended.

    Separate Tongues

    There is a young final year film student who is trying to raise the funding to make a short film about 1950's gay society in England and the use of Polari - the language of the gay community. If any of you would like to find out about it, he has a YouTube video: You can also get more details about his project on indiegogo.com. Just go to the site and search for Separate Tongues.
