Michael Allen's collection of short stories, "King Albert's Words of Advice," is a truly entertaining display of talent by one of the UK's finest writers. The story of the book's namesake, King Albert, is a delightful introduction, leading to the humor of "Unblotting the Copybook" and a marvelous lesson in justice in "A Motto to Die By."

Allen is amazingly versatile, including in this collection a taste of science fiction, heartache, villainy and inequity. Each story is preceded by an introduction that is a unique style of this author.

In his afterword, Allen speaks of the "teller of tales," offered for a pint of beer and creating both illusion and emotions that are real--yet are gone when you look back. Once read, however, it's hard to ever forget Allen's.
