Harry's World - short story illustrations

"And I, I am here - a group of one. I am not so naive to be unaware that I have a certain reputation here - a kind of gruff aloofness; I don’t actually believe this is part of my nature… or at least it never used to be. I like to be my own man, that’s all. I’ve little time for idle gossip. Years ago, when the new, young starters would arrive in June or July, I was more sociable. They would plague me for tips on the horses, or pop up to my ‘office’ for a skive or a cup of tea.”
