About me

Gender MALE
Location United Kingdom
Introduction 32-year old writer. The contemporary novel, Comedy, SF/fantasy and the lost (in Britain at least) art of TV drama are the main topics here. As Clive James said, "There are essayists who can be faithful to the world's multiplicity even when they are writing about Buffy The Vampire Slayer. There are other essayists who can't report a war-crimes trial without reporting flummery."
