About

Welcome!


How are you today? Good? Well, that's smashing. I'm feeling good as well, thank you.

If you're reading this, then you probably want some information to build up a mental picture of me. Well, there isn't much to say, save that I'm a musical Luddite - choosing good ol' Rock'n'Roll over the doof-doof music of today - and that I favour authors such as Stephen King, George R.R. Martin, Tolkien, and Orwell. I have also subjugated the entire British Isles under my rule - hence the name.

I've got a couple of things up that might interest you, so have a gander through my work and see if anything catches your eye. If not, click on something anyway. You might surprise yourself and find what you're reading to your liking.

Goodbye!

Children of the Corn? That just might be the best title of all time. 
      
      And, yes, no more names it is. You can have your measly four, and continue to exist as the eternal, wonderful, sometimes scary entity that you are. I genuinely glanced up at my window half expecting a face to be hanging there in the dark after reading that bit, so well done.
      
      And keep on the crack. I'm on it everyday, and I'm perfectly normal. We can even visit a crack den together one day and dope out whilst fantasising about Gollum and his fisted hand. Ah, good times...

I'm really glad you liked the minstrels. They originally came from a short story I kept trying to write, but it was one of those ones where even though you think the idea is good, the execution of it never seems quite right. So its great that its found a home here, and that it even has relevancy. There is a sliver of truth in it - we already know that some manics are starting to wake from their madness.  But how much of the tale is true is up for debate, and Wayne is certainly not known for honesty. 
      
      Also glad that the Jon Teal thing worked. I don't know why, but the idea of recurring characters, who may not have massive parts to play immediately, but maybe far down the line, pleases me immensely. I was able to do it with Mark Anderson a bit, after his ambiguous ending in After Britain, and now I can do it with Teal, and Hilda, the weird woman who chopped off that man's willy. I was also pretty surprised that its not already a title of something, 'cos Children of the Dawn really sounds like it should be. 
      
      He may not be the fella' from the diary entry, or Albion's chronicler, but one of his descendants will be. At least, that's how it is in my head. A few of the quotes from the part openings that aren't lyrics are extracts from a future book of his. All very nerdy, and all very meaningless, but for some reason I find it very enjoyable. 
      
      I'll try and keep the plot moving, and stop with constantly adding new bits that slow it down. Its just hard when a new shiny idea pops up, and, having the attention span of a magpie, I have to chase after it. 
      
      And finally, you're slowly becoming a very powerful and magical being aren't you? Thought planting powers, voodoo stuff, being able to turn into a spectre, being able to convene with internet Gods and summon them to do your bidding, plus being able to draw like a fuckin' monster. The only thing missing is your super-hero name :D
