Welcome to William Ottoway's Utopia and other stories including tales on the perils of technology and modern music's dangerous lure, an old-fashioned shop romance, a very old-aged revenge fantasy, and an explosive reboot of what really drove Will Shakespeare to start writing!
Please click on the book cover image for further information, and if you browse the menu above you'll find some of my poems alongside a monologue, Queen Eleanor, illustrating how I have forged verse and script on the anvil of prose to bear stories from that creative smithy.
And what better way to accompany your short story reading than with some complementary background music? I love all my characters, but there is only one whose DJ set on a Friday night has been part-recorded for posterity. At just under forty minutes, and it is thumping at sunset, Rick's abridged mix can be listened to here.
So, available in paperback or as an e-book version, this is William Ottoway's Utopia and other stories, its eponymous hero finding himself pitched against the very appliance which has most contributed to our ground-breaking, yet blithely ill-considered, technological revolution!
