‘The Englishman And The Butterfly’
by Ryan Asmussen

Professor Henry Fell is so overwhelmed by fear that he’s only barely able to register (with a certain sad, slightly surreal, satisfaction) that the plane is actually perfectly level, that there isn’t a single buckle in the currents of air about him, that he’s seemingly the only person on this flight feverishly clutching his armrests. His conscious mind knows full well that the airplane isn’t going down; it’s not even experiencing turbulence. But his body (more specifically every nerve in his body) rings out with the sort of anxiety that would be entirely appropriate in such a situation.

I am really looking forward to discovering just how the Professor deals with the remainder of his flight and the landing at his destination, as I can sympathise with him completely. I am no stranger to flying, however I certainly couldn’t put my hand on my heart and say that I ever enjoy the experience, it is simply a means to an end and is often the only way of getting from A to B.

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'.
