Compost’s Corner

Welcome to Henri Compost’s Blog

Articles, features, short stories, poems, off-the-beaten-track reviews, travel logs, personal anecdotes and other assorted oddments, even the occasional play – it’s all to be found here.

Question is, will the scraps thrown onto this ever-growing heap start to germinate and take root or will they simply be left to rot?


Henri works as an IT consultant. Born up north and raised in the UK but now living in continental Europe, he considers himself Multi-European. He’s not overly political. Nor particularly religious. He just likes to write.

Please leave a comment if you find yourself enjoying his (com)posts and would like to see more.

Oh, and by the way, it’s not his real name. But you knew that already.
