“Some Corner of a Dorset Field that is Forever Arabia,” being the true history of Lawrence of Arabia, aka TE Lawrence, TE Shaw, John Ross, ??? Surely you did not think the truth had already been told?
This is a story I took a particular pleasure in writing, and I am proud of the result. It was mentioned in despatches, with Ellen Datlow describing it as a “strong dark story” in her round up in Best Horror of the Year 7. It was published in Three-Lobed Burning Eye magazine in 2014. At the time, there were some restrictions on my ability to publish under my own name, and it was published under the name Lloyd Connor.
The story now appears under my own by line, a source of tiny pleasure to myself. if you have not come across it before, you can read it here for free with just one click, or even listen to me proving my written vocabulary is wider than my oral.
