The Author

by Jonathan Hill
Originally published by on 04/05/2017

It was an author’s worst nightmare. The authorities looking into an Internet history and finding searches on how to obtain a gun, for example, or worse…

“Research,' the author insisted, shaking and crying. “I needed to access the site in order to write.'

“Then how do you explain the missing child?' the officer asked.

“I honestly don’t know. All I do is write books, authentic books.'

The author’s pleas were noted down but a search of his flat found no books, no writing, only images. Hundreds of them. He had written but one story, that of him being an author.
