Black Country Tales

A collection of short stories by Carl Owen.

Set amongst modern day life in the Black Country, West Midlands. Here are twelve short stories all based around average people who live in the semi-rural middle England. Far away from the hustle and bustle of busy cities like London, Birmingham and Manchester. They are different types of people but all experience stories of love, loss and loneliness as they get on with living in a place that doesn't offer many possibilities.

Tales Include:

MY TOWN - An introduction into my life and memories of growing up in Dudley.

FIRSTS - A young couple look back at all the firsts they experienced in their relationship.

VEHICLES AND ANIMALS - A lonely guy looks at what he needs in his life and sets about changing it.

BUBBLES - A videographer tells the tale of his love life as a photographer with an amazing story comes into his girlfriends life and starts to change her perception of real love.

THE SAXAPHONIST - A street musician unexpectedly gets dragged along by a woman who needs assistance with a broken heart and revenge.

A CHANCE MEETING - Three lonely and lost people who work a night shift have their lives bought together unexpectedly and each have to deal with the consequences of their previous actions in hope of having a better life.

ONE WEEK - Set over a week a boxer and a scorned woman's lives intertwine as they try to live in a world they believe doesn't accept them anymore.

ONCE AND NEVER AGAIN - A young gangster is given the task of helping out his retired boss whilst he moves back to his old town and remembers the life and woman he left behind.

UNOBTAINABLE LOVE - A young man who is in love with a woman of a different race wonders why society cant accept true love and recounts a tale of two other lovers who couldn't be together because of age.

VENGEANCE - When a guy meets his ex who wrong him he sets about sweet talking her so he can enact his revenge.

THE REVOLUTION - A woman with an average but boring family life takes it upon herself to go out and have fun not realizing the consequences of her actions.

THE RELEASE - After serving a life sentence for murder a guy takes revenge on the real perpetrator with the help of the scorn victims father.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Charming book of Anecdotes 21 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
For those of you who like a gentle, untaxing read, packed with nostalgia and reminiscence this is the book for you. Not my usual read but the writing style is good and there is enough meat on the bones to catch your interest and hold it. I like the light style and abscence of any heavy harrowing emotional baggage.
A pleasure to read!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 15 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
These tales may be set in the Black Country but there is nothing in them that relates to the area. They are poorly written and poorly edited. I had hoped for much more.
