My Favorite Stories on HubPages -Docmo

This is the 7th in a series reviewing my favorite stories on HubPages. I am a reader first and a writer second. I love to read and I love to find a really good story. I have found a bunch of stories on HubPages that are worthy of being read again. This is my criteria for rating a story. If I like it enough to read it again, it is a good story. I will always find more in it the second time.

Docmo

Docmo is a writer in the UK. He was born in India and his writing reflects this. He writes in different genres and you never know where his imagination will take us. He has a few unfinished continuing stories on his site and I hope that one day he finishes them. They are very good and worth reading. He also has several stories that are not on this listing. Go through and find more because he has some very good ones that I did not list. Quite a few of the photographs illustrating his hubs have been taken by him and are really beautiful.

The first story of Docmo's that I read was memorable. It is "The Wanderer". It is a fantastic story that has remained in my memory and occasionally pops into my mind to be reread. I always have considered that a very good sign of a great story. This one could very easily be made into a full-sized bestselling book. This man is traveling to his old home to be with someone. She is talking in his head and we get to find out who she is. A wonderful story.

I then read the story "Stories of the Wind" and was hooked on his writing. The imagery of this work was so poetic and beautiful, reminding us all to just stop and enjoy occassionally. This man and his son are spending their every other weekend time together. He finds that his young son can teach him a few things of worth. A story of hope and love.

Then of a despair so deep and terrible that you do not want to wake, he had another story. Find out why he has been taken and a surprise ending. Docmo imbues this story with horror unimaginable.

A story of a tree which had figured so largely in his character's life. He tells of this story while waiting to go to court. This tree is loved and cherished by this man.

This one is so ethereally beautiful that it takes your breath away. It has magic all through it. Fairy tales still exist and this is a winner.

http://docmo.hubpages.com/_3mcrjp1v01jkh/hub/Short-Story-Butterfly-Nymph

A beautiful love story with star-crossed lovers. This story is of a young man who is fascinated by the statue of a mermaid chiseled from stone. The tales of the village tell of this love. This one has a wonderful ending of a love so deep and true.

http://docmo.hubpages.com/_3mcrjp1v01jkh/hub/The-Stone-Mermaid

A series of mystery stories that have a taste of Sherlock Holmes about them. These men meet in a bookstore to talk and discuss books. They are all book collectors. They also solve mysteries. Very good stories with some good puzzles to figure out.

We have the story of the strange imp, P.G. Woodimp. He torments hub writers. He torments Docmo into writing. Docmo lets his imagination run wild on this one. The stories are funny, irreverent and comical. This imp gets him into all kinds of strange situations.

Docmo writes a Winnie the Pooh series. It is totally charming and really cute. It is evidently written by a man who has read these stories as a child and to his children. Definitely worth reading.

Docmo, Thank you for your wonderful comment. I do not find reading to be hard. It is what I do so that is a pleasure. We have so many writers and it is impossible to know of all of them. I hope that this will help all of us get to know more wonderful fiction writers. It is one genre of writing that is not lauded enough on HubPages and needs to be. I thank you for coming by to visit.

Hi Becky. What a wonderful hub to write! You have completely and utterly motivated me to read Docmo's articles. They sound so very fascinating. I know some of the hubbers you have reviewed, but not them all. I will be back to read more of your hubs.

Thank you sincerely, Maralexa

Thanks Ms. Becky Katz, I needed something uplifting after that last hub I wrote, in the midst of reading yours, I suddenly veered off the the land of Docmo's Imp tale and it reminded me of other times. Quite entertaining really! Sparing course words and idle threats is much more entertaining than fighting those given to demonic perversion in this world. The battle must continue! Thanks again darling, you really saved my evening!


Becky Katz profile image

Becky Katz 4 years ago from Hereford, AZ Author

slcockerham, so glad I could save your evening. Fighting evils in this world of ours is necessary. I always have to find something uplifting to read after something like that. I also have some stories of my children, which are quite amusing. Perhaps one of those would help. The Imp is quite amusing and makes me laugh. Will Starr has written westerns that are highly entertaining and uplifting. Thank you for coming by to visit.

Becky Katz 4 years ago from Hereford, AZ Author

Hi Mike, I have been looking at the visitors on these hubs and it is all from HubPages, I expected that and am not surprised. I do get a lot more visitors to my other hubs, they just don't comment. I am guessing they are from search engine traffic. Glad you came by to visit.
