Psychological sharpshooters, fickle football fans and prodigious people who choose to use and misuse their incredible talents invite you into this collection of their jumbled-up worlds. During dark days at work where people reflect both on what could have been and on what could still be, things are never quite what they seem, and never turn out as expected. Crafted to be short and snappy enough for coffee breaks, but long in the memory, Steve Morris maintains the momentum from his first book “In All Probability” with more of his diverse short stories of the unexpected. You’ll never take anything for granted again except perhaps for uncertainty itself. Anything can turn up in a “Jumble Tale.” “In All Probability” Reviews “A succinct and precise style” The Truth about Books July 09 “Perfect for a quick read on a coffee break…” “Something to entertain even the most of ardent critics…” MMU Success Magazine Autumn 09 Book reviews online: PublishedBestsellers website.

About the author (2010)

Steve Morris is a teacher and examiner of mathematics and science. He travels around his region of England teaching students who are too ill to get to school. Steve graduated in mathematics from Manchester Metropolitan University in 1993. Despite a background surrounded by figures, one of Steve’s passions has been his love for English literature and collecting antiquarian books. In his own schooldays he enjoyed putting his vivid imagination to good use. With a growing supply of bizarre short stories, he found early success in magazines and anthologies in the UK and overseas. 2009 saw Steve realise a lifelong ambition with the release of his debut book In All Probability: A Collection of Short Stories, which with a nod of approval from the press developed a modest following. This was followed in 2010 with a second collection Jumble Tales. His first full novel ‘Playing Havoc’ is out in July 2012.
