The Magic of Stories


Here at the Magic of Stories, we love tales of all kinds. Be it true ones, which can be just as fascinating. There are stories by the site owner and flash fiction from guest authors.

The site was revamped in July 2017, so if you have visited before, you should be able to navigate easier through the menu to find what you are looking for.

The shop will provide the owner’s books and some of those collaborated on at discount price. It also means the owner gets full commission. By buying directly, you are helping to support Indie writers.

    3rd time lucky, hopefully !!
    Quite interesting to read that your 2x great grandfather wrote for the Oldham Chronicle As you probably remember, both my parents originally came from Oldham. I have a copy at home of the 1st issue, 1st edition of the Oldham Chronicle which I found when clearing out after my dad died.Pity it wasn’t an original or it would have been worth quite a bit.


    • Even so, I expect it has some really interesting snippets in it. What year is it?

      My 2xGG wrote articles for them and then published a book. I have the book, but can’t remember the exact date now. Early 1900s perhaps.

      In it he describes his visit to Henshaw’s Society for the blind, which I published on here. He also went to Kersal Cell in Salford, amongst others. It is interesting seeing it from his eyes and of those times.
