Living in: Reading, Berkshire, UK

Age: 29 years, 11 months and 22 days. For some reason, this seems important.

things as well.

First DWJ/when: The Ogre Downstairs. However, I didn't think that much of it
at the time, and it was Charmed Life that really got me hooked.

Favourite DWJ: Archer's Goon. A Tale of Time City. Charmed Life.

Least favourite DWJ: Um...Probably Dark Lord of Derkholm, but it's a bit
like selecting which of your children you like least, I suspect.

Card, Philip K Dick, George RR Martin (esp. Fevre Dream and Tuf Voyaging),
China Mieville, Kathy Reichs, Michael Connolly, Dudley Pope, CS Forester,

great fun).
