In the twenty-first century, the residents of Canterbury Hall gathered around a table to tell each other tales just as Chaucer’s pilgrims did on their way to Canterbury in the fourteenth century. Like Chaucer’s stories, these fifteen tales are contemporary to their times, and sometimes the account of the persons who tell these tales are as interesting as the stories themselves. Written in Chaucer-style verse, The Canterbury Hall Tales are a treat for people, young and old, who enjoy the humor and adventure of Chaucer’s stories. The author has made no attempt to capture Chaucer’s bawdiness.

Bert is also the author of two novels: Parson Campbell’s Breakthrough and Sunrise in the Cloud Forest.
