For those of you who wonder what Mei spends his time doing when he isn't writing, the answer is simple. He writes. Some years ago, he sat himself under a tree in his springtime garden and wrote, in real time, a crime novel The Canterbury Trail based on the Prologue from Chaucer's Tales of almost the same name. It has never found a home with a publisher - well, it's never really looked for one, having been something of a personal fun project - but the book is now available to anyone who asks, as a PDF. Just drop a line to the usual email address and you can be reading within minutes (hopefully - or a day at the most). Free books - whatever next?
