  1. Without a Word Spoken

  2. As we welcome new author - William King - to AwesomeDude, we'll begin posting REFUGEE Saturday, August 5th. Here's a synopsis: Can you imagine the future when you are thirteen years old? When you’ve lost everything? From the ruins of war in a bombed out town in Syria; the desperation of refugee camps; and slum cities in Turkey, the paramount goal is safety and the impossible: Europe. This story is of our time and does not shy away from harsh reality. There is abuse, exploitation, huge risk, suffering and pain, but there is also romance and a few good souls. Watch for it! Mike
  3. The Americanization (Americanisation) of English

    Truly, cunning linguists!
  4. Flash Fiction

    OK... I have been considering adding Flash Fiction to the regular AD site for a long time. It has been a part of the AD Forums for some years now and it's become such a popular literary form that it's time to give it its due. Just how to do so, is the issue. Give me a couple of weeks to ponder this and consider the options. I'll be putting up a post here in Dude's Desk with a poll to find out how you folks want to do this. Mike
  5. Son of a Preacherman

    I spent several months with Ronnie & John in 1967. I don't want to go into the personal lives of these two who have been close friends since their schoolboy days but their is no doubt among any of those who know them well that this was 'their song.' As far as any public statement from them, I am not aware of any. Cam Clarke recorded the song on a CD more than fifteen years ago, clearly from a maie-male point of view. Mike

    Hmm, been watching Graham Norton again, Bruin? Mike

  8. Son of a Preacherman

    Thought you'd enjoy a recent video of a song written by a couple of friends of mine and originally recorded by Dusty Springfield in 1968. This portrayal is just what composers Ronnie Wilkins and John Hurley had in mind when they wrote the song! Enjoy! Mike
  9. Boys in Skirts

    I love it!
  10. Russian Whackos speak out

    Huh, I thought a beard was a girl who went to the Prom with you so nobody would know you wre gey?
  11. Anyone have any news?

    Heard from Nigel today. He got through the surgery fine but with a few complications. I'm sure he'll update all of us in the near future! Mike
