New Feature

You’ll notice a new menu entry: “Authors: An A to Z of my Favourites”.  This is where you will find an alphabetical listing of authors whose work has become a favourite of mine.  The reason for listing these works by author rather than book title is explained in the top page.  I’m hoping that this listing will prove of some interest and value to you all!

The listing will grow over time so do keep an eye on it!  There is absolutely no way that I could create all the pages before adding the feature.  Over 30 years of reading to date, plus continuing to discover new favourites, makes the task enormous indeed.  If the entire body of work falls into the “favourite” status, no individual books or series will be mentioned, other than generalised references.  In many cases, however, there will be particular books or series only, in which case some mention of preference(s) will be explained.

I would love to know if you enjoy any of these authors’ works, or if my mentioning them inspires you to give them a look.  There have been instances when I’ve recommended books to a friend or family member and they have ended up bigger fans of them than I am!

About Steve

An author since the age of 13 years, writing again dominates my activities. My "Imagineer-ing" blog is my primary site. Also: Beginner knitter since November 2010. Favourite knitting techniques: cable and lace. Beginner cross stitcher. Beginner jewellery maker. With the promotion of self publication and all the other work that has been going on here, Dad decided around 2am this morning (22/11/2013) that it was time to begin his next adventure. He was seen off earlier the previous evening by myself, my brother, my sister in law, and my sister, as well as his wife (our mum), and an enigmatic being known only as A Lorraine. After this time of story telling, laughing, crying, joking and mickey taking, we saw how tired both mum and dad were, and we decided to leave them under the (sometimes) gentle care of The Lorraine. When Dad found the timetable for his travels, he let Mum know gently, which woke her from her drowsing, then, with the same gentleness he showed in this universe, he boarded his favourite mode of transport, the Interdimensional Steam Train, and set off with a smile and a wave. For those of us closest, that smile was a reminder that his pain has ended, and the wave, an indicator that he will pop in to all those that knew him, from time to time. Usually at the most inconvenient and in opportune moments he can. While we are sad that he is no longer here, we are happy he now has no pain, and is experiencing more extraordinary things that his writers mind will be frantically weaving into a new story.
