JOURNEY THROUGH UNCERTAINTY 
& OTHER SHORT STORIES


Featuring physical and emotional journeys, endured and enjoyed, with humour and courage – each one a testimony to a place, or an event, or a sentiment.  


Our writers have journeyed all day, but not moved very far – have taken circular routes, finishing where they started – but have broadened their view far more than they ever thought possible.  In all cases, there have been realities contemplated and revealed, and life-lessons learned.


Celebrate this collection of thought provoking and inspirational travel tales written by seven different authors who were selected as the best from a large number of submissions to the 2016 Ouen Press short story competition.

THE SOHO DON
Michael Connor


The story of a shy south London boy from a respectable family who became a shadowy but powerful figure in Soho, Mayfair and Brighton underworlds. Smartly dressed and well spoken, Billy Howard dominated the London crime scene for 30 years, reign punctuated only by short stays in prison.  The Krays said he feared no one and that Howard was the once man they truly respected. 


The Soho Don is a gripping account of Howard's violent life and it exposes the links between the vicious gangland bosses the police, the celebrity hothouses of Mayfair clubs, high-class prostitution and international gambling.  It portrays his slide fro power and finally, his pathetic death in 1984.
