About the Site


Stroke and Bore is the vanity project of Harry Cordner, a nom de plume of a relatively new typewriter convert. You’ll find humour, fiction, essays, and personal journal entries. The author’s interests vary wildly, and he will write about whatever catches his fancy at the time. This could be old cars, letterheads, buildings, or old people and what they get up to at the YMCA. Besides his Olympia SM4, your author uses a red Waterman, a beige Unicomp Model M, and an iPhone to arrange letters into words. You can arrange letters with him on Words with Friends, username [phcordner]. If you have cool letterheads or paper ephemera to share, write some feedback to the author on them and send them to:
