Huzzah! My volume of short stories is out in time for Christmas. Below is a link to it on Amazon. You can also get it from other good online book sellers including Waterstone’s online I understand. Let me know if you have difficulties sourcing. The Kindle version should be available tomorrow or Friday.
Novelette: ‘The primrose way’
Short stories: ‘Arnhem, 1944’, ‘Suffer little children’, ‘The perfect name’, ‘An angel passing through’, ‘Losses’, ‘Judas the Iscariot’,’ Pretty words’, ‘Ice cold passion’.
What are these nine stories about?
Engaging a gardener; innocents in war; being homeless, then not being homeless; the best way to name a baby; the power and the beauty of sport; different innocents in another war; politics in the time of Pontius Pilate; how not to console a friend and, finally, a swan song on ice.
“People are capable of the most extraordinary things: even the sort of people one might imagine live cloistered lives in one way or another.
Sometimes the extraordinary things that come to us all lead to success – even to triumph; sometimes to disappointment – even disaster.”
Published by Judi Moore
I hope you find something to interest you here.
In December 2017 I published my fourth book – ‘Wonders will never cease’. It’s a satirical campus novel set in the fictional Ariel University in 1985. If you enjoyed Tom Sharpe’s Porterhouse novels, Willy Russell’s ‘Educating Rita’, David Lodge’s campus novels or Malcolm Bradbury’s ‘The History Man’ back in the day, you may enjoy revisiting the ivory towers of 1980s’ academe thirty years on. See what you think.
“It is December, 1985. The year is winding gently towards its close until Fergus Girvan, a Classicist at Ariel University, finds his research has been stolen by the man who is also seeking to steal his daughter. But which man is, actually, the more unscrupulous of the two? And is there hope for either of them?”
In the autumn of 2015 I published a volume of short fiction: 'Ice Cold Passion and other stories'. I am also the author of novella 'Little Mouse', a shortish piece of historical fiction which I published in 2014 and, a sequel to it, 'Is death really necessary?', my eco thriller set in the near future and which, confusingly, I published in 2009.
All the books are available from all good online bookshops and FeedARead on paper, and as e-books on Kindle.
On a semi-regular basis, and about a month after the event, I post here reviews which I do for Big Al & Pals, the premier reviewer of indie books, based in the States. My interests tend to thrillers, SF, magic realism and other quirky stuff.
On this blog are also posted the reviews I did for Leighton Buzzard Music Club over some five years up to the end of 2015. LBMC present annual seasons of eight monthly chamber music concerts at the Library Theatre in Leighton Buzzard, Bucks. They select young musicians just beginning to make their name - and the concerts are usually magnificent. I was very proud to be associated with them.
I review other music, books, theatre and exhibitions which I've particularly enjoyed.
BTW - it says the link to Facebook is broken. I dispute that. Click it and see, why not?

One thought on “Ice cold passion: stories”
Exciting news, Judi! Just went on to amazon to get this – it says there is a 3-5 week delay for the paperback and currently no Kindle option. Will try Waterstones too but just thought I would let you know. Congrats on the book!
