With a lifelong passion for fantastic worlds of any kind, from movies to fiction, cosmology and art to music, posters, album and paperback book covers I also have special interests which include various social and cultural turning points of human history, including early the 1800s, 1900s, 1960s and 2000s when broad cultural revolutions feasted on the body of the status quo. Many of the posts in this blog highlight these themes, with a particular emphasis on the gothic, fantastic and supernatural.

And recently, I joined society6 with an online store for some of my paintings and illustrations for prints, cards and iPhone cases. Still exploring, but seems productive.

  1. Thanks for the follow on the crazy and very weird world of Twitter. I have had a quick browse through your site and will be looking a lot more deeply later tonight as I love what I see. It is fantastic!

  3. I was hoping, if you liked the writing, that you’d post the Prologue in your fantasy podcast and I could share it with my readers 🙂

    If you really liked it, I was perhaps hoping that you might consider making the audio recording for the novel. But only if you really, *really* liked it. You know that feeling when you can barely finish your cereal, you’re so excited to read the next chapter of *that* fantasy novel? D’ya know, Jake?

Hi, please leave a comment, thank you...
