Description

Description

A Cantraip of Tales is a collection of trifles exploring the borders of my experiences, or perhaps my imagination, and there are times when my narrative escapes into the realms of fantasy. Some tales have some sort of basis in fact; others are purely fictional; and all have been embroidered to some extent. Perhaps memory flirts with the facts sometimes to fit the narrative or to embellish the yarn somewhat – so what. Who is a hundred per cent accurate with their account of events even with the best intentions? There is no one set theme other than that of “The Unexplained” or “The Inexplicable” or “The Unusual” and is merely a look at some unusual circumstance which any of us could have encountered at some time or other, a collection of yarns, ‘A Cantraip of Tales’.

Kennedy Smith (Dr. A.C.K. Smith) lives in Falkirk in central Scotland where he pursues his interests in boats, music and conjuring. He is a graduate of the University of Glasgow and has published books in chemistry (Applied Physical Chemistry Problems, Applied Physical Chemistry), Magic (Rubik Cubik Magik, Kennedy’s Dictionary for Magicians), A History of Falkirk Tryst Orchestra and various technical papers.
