You’re about to read Verandah 29. It is a miscellany of words in all their forms. These forms range from the shortest of poems where the meaning of a single word is of vital importance to stories that draw you along, adding intrigue gradually. There are pieces that paint a picture for you to observe and others than play with your mind.
You have no idea what you’re in for. Each (story) is a little bit different, morsels to be enjoyed one at a time. Yet they all fit together, an eclectic collection, each lending something to the others.
