I have a “man-crush” on the creatures, Yuffie, Hydra, Fuen, Red and others featured in short tales, flash fiction, wonderfully “awful” puns, and illustrations – especially the illustrations – that live in the imagination of Peter Edward’s Little Fears world. Thousands of fans follow the Fears on WordPress, Facebook, Twitter or many other social media sites. I took a day away from blogging yesterday, when the book arrived in the mail, to chill out and enjoy 90 pages of “whimsy”, the book jacket calls it. There’s very few things a curmudgeon like me will spend on whimsical items: ( I have some “Popeye” wear, a few “Old Guys Rule”, and even a few Navy-themed tees).
This year, however, I bought a t-shirt featuring Fuen. I own other Fears featured writings, January (Kindle Edition) and Capricorn. I blame it on exposure to the British Isles in early childhood. A mother raised in the North of Ireland. A strange fascination with MONTY PYTHON humor as a young adult.
I appreciate getting to know through the blogosphere, many witty, insightful, talented and strange people. If you have not had the opportunity to enjoy Little Fears yet, I insist you take a gander.
After you read more of my nonsense, now and then.
