Author has written 8 stories for General, and General.
If you wish to understand the fragrance of the rose or the tenacity of the oak; if you are not satisfied until you know the secret paths by which the sunshine and the air achieve these wonders; then take up writing. For the past and present lead into a future where writing has a special place. Many of the evils which disfigure this present world cannot be put right by writing alone: but it is equally sure that they cannot be put right without it.

For those who are wondering about my name, let me explain it. Alchemy is a medieval form of chemistry concerned with trying to turn common metals into gold. I think that this is what writing is all about, trying turn the common realm of everyday life into something far more precious and magical. Trying to turn ordinary words into something far greater.
