Meet Colonel Quentin James Abernathy (Ret.), former member of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces.

Colonel Abernathy retired some years ago as a bachelor, and now lives off his pension and his family’s fortune. He is quite old, and belongs to a stately London gentleman’s club.

In The Lion Sleeps Tonight, Colonel Abernathy tells a tale to a club acquaintance – a tale of 1950s British Guyana in South America, and the Colonel’s encounter with a lion.

But this is no ordinary lion.

This lion has been extinct for 10,000 years!

Find out what happened in that long-ago time, in the good Colonel’s own words, in T. M. Bilderback’s rousing adventure short story, The Lion Sleeps Tonight!
