Mongollen and Other Stories Paperback
by Alan Gibbins
6 short stories, the lion's share relating to a three part saga of the country MONGOLLEN and the three problems it faces.
Inspired by the history of the Welsh 'colony' in Patagonia, Mongollen is a small country founded by the O'Gollens of Irish extraction in the 1800's.
Now well established, bordering China and south of Inner Mongolia, and for some years a Kingdom with an O'Gollen Royal family.
This humorous story charts its history and the manner in which the three problems are resolved.
CLOUD NINE is a pre vision of Heaven from Limbo - a rare privilege.
A DUTCH TALE is a light-hearted slant on the possible interpretations of Delft tiles surrounding a fireplace constructed in 1655.
THE PRINCESS is a sad and very short story of a fairy Princess.
