  • The Red Man Turns to Green by Dickson Telfer

    The strength of The Red Man Turns to Green (which I think is correctly titled ‘the red man turns to green’ as capitalisation isn’t a feature that the author much employs in this great assortment) is in the attention to the finer points of storytelling. 

    If you wanted a straight-up master class on short story writing you could do worse than follow these cues, employed without effort by Dickson Telfer: recognisable characters, sketched confidently, and placed in strong, clear dramatic situations.
