Quacking Good Yarns
by Professor Edward Duck
Quaxotic tales and poems from the quacksilver pen of Blue Duck, the professor with the quack-witted mind.
Ted Duck was born in Cottingham, Yorkshire in 1927. After service with the Royal Air Force, he took a degree in Chemistry at London University and undertook further studies in Cologne and Aachen. He subsequently became well known as a scientist. He was awarded the Colywn Gold Medal for his researches into polymers in 1981. After suffering two heart attacks, he retired early from active participation in science in 1988 and took to writing. This little book reflects personal experiences in the short stories. His doggerel poetry illustrates his feelings towards the inequality of the rich and the extreme poor, his cynicism towards politics, science and among other things, the bigotry of religion.
