It has just occurdeth to me that most of my stories have an animal rights twist; a moral slanted look at the way we treat our domesticated animals. We live among some pretty cruel happenstancings and the more we realise this the more we will, hopefully, adjust our social behaviour.
One story (in my collection) subtley introduces the fact that the UK is the butcher of Europe when it comes to horse flesh for human consumption. Few people know this and that is why the industry is involved in mass torture of innocent, sentient beings while the public turn an ignorant eye.
I personally think more needs to be done to protect animals. We have an obligation to look after them which is, sadly, often wanting.
