To Kill A Schoolboy is an anthology that I wrote between 2010 and 2013, which I finally compiled mid-2013. The writings in it vary from poetry (such as the title poem, “To Kill A Schoolboy), to essays (such as a historical essay, “The Fur Trade) and short stories (such as “The Accidental Hero”).
To be clear: I wrote To Kill A Schoolboy between the ages of 10 and 13. Yes, people’s mental capacities change quite a bit over the course of youth, and this results in the different parts of the anthology having quite different voices. (But, all of them are mine.)
To be honest, looking back, I can’t believe I wrote some of that stuff. My voice has certainly changed over the years. But it’s still around, partly because of a pride thing, and partly because it’s a personal reminder of the fact that, um, I’ve actually accomplished something in life. Also, I guess, I still think that the writing is decent, if not a little young.
You can get it for free at Noisetrade in PDF and ePub formats, and you can buy it at Amazon for the Kindle. I hope you enjoy it, and if you do, I really appreciate reviews and shares.
