Welcome! Thanks for visiting! We’re a bit at sixes and sevens at the moment, but do come in. Mind where you step.
For your amusement and edification, we at The Athertonian — and when I say “we,” what I mean is “I” — have prepared several unique and diverting Entertainments, absolutely free of charge.
A novel, formatted, for some reason, as a play. The reason is “Because it is awesome, and this is my website.”
A Stately Home. A Domineering Matriarch. People With Secrets. A House Party. And, of course, Murder. At Atherton Manor.
Atherton is, Quite Literally, My Middle Name. Murder. At Atherton Manor.
Absolutely do not miss the Dramatis Personae gallery!! Each picture –save one– guaranteed genuine Athertonian — that is, each and every one, with one exception, is a picture of me, Assuming some rude disguise — and, should you click upon a picture, you will not only view the picture much enlarged, but scrolling down will enable you to peruse the sordid story lurking behind these smiling masks.
Right now, all you’ll find here is an unfinished play for voices about Cricket.
My articles, musings, etc.
I especially recommend my article on Writer’s Block. Also, don’t miss my lovely re-setting of a genuine Spam message into a moving piece of poetry about, I think, human sexual desire and its limitations — it is an ad for Viagra, as far as I can tell.
Thanks for visiting! Stay as long as you like!
