Short Stories by Beda Higgins
Chameleon includes stories about the vivid intensity of a child's imagination, the confusion of adolescent love, the darker side of human nature, and the vulnerability of those who don't fit in. Both imaginative and comic, the writing brings a new slant to domestic familiarity, with characters who teeter along a fine line between madness and badness.
These twelve stories, often giving a contemporary nod to traditional fairy tales, come from the winner of the 2009 Mslexia International Short Story Competition which annually attracts thousands of entries world-wide.
