‘Fleeting Glance’ by Sherban Young

Abstract Communications

I held the thing up to the light and studied it closer.

It was a postcard. 3.5 inches high by 5 inches wide. Just a postcard. And it didn’t make the slightest bit of sense to me.

The artwork on the front showed a pleasing living room scene, bright and cheery, with oodles of burgundy and gold. Left center was a Christmas tree. The artist had a nice avant-garde style with clean lines and colors. I liked it.

The back contained a short message. I give it to you exactly as written: ….


Best wishes on your impending nuptials.Things sure are livening up for you. Say hello to the old man for me.

Stothard Hope.”

Well, Sherban has done it again! … First lines that have me completely baffled, yet totally intrigued and itching to know more!

Together with some fantastic cover art (courtesy of Katerina Vamvasaki), which is as abstract as the first lines inside its covers, this has all the hallmarks of a ‘mystery caper’ that’s too good to miss!

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
