St Lucia: Mr. Gyanchand Rayman, writer of short stories, will be launching his anthology “ENTICING SHORT STORIES” at the Castries Central Library in this Carribean island country on Tuesday, 23rd February.

The compilation of Twenty Stories covers a wide range of themes: mystery, adventure, humor, romance, tragedy, etc.

The stories are exciting, provide a literary treat and are suitable for readers sixteen years old and over. They are set in Saint Lucia, Guyana, Trinidad, Jamaica, and Barbados.

Books will be on sale at the launch and refreshments will be provided. The public is invited.

An excerpt from Gyanchand’s ‘Enticing Short Stories’ can be read below:

He raced to the other end and snapped it and coiled the line, festooned with panties, in thick loops and garlanded himself with it. He threw his hands up in the air, and twirled and jumped and pranced, a lone carnival reveler in the spotlight of center stage, ecstatic in his bacchanalian abandon.
Without another moment’s hesitation, Ramundo charged down the hillside and hurled himself at his prey who was, by then, lost in rapture. The girls rent the air with their excited cries and plunged headlong into the melee, rolling on the ground, pawing and tugging and punching the wretched victim and shrieking obscenities unbecoming of them, as students.
The commotion startled the entire campus, and from every dormitory, girls still in their sleep-wear poured forth by the score and descended to the arena. The dozen or so curious teachers who ran from the staff quarters, together with the housemothers, shouted themselves hoarse to restore order. And when, eventually, the culprit was examined in the glare of a flashlight, everyone was shocked: the intruder was none other than their own chief security guard, Dunstan..”
