The Infernal Deferral of Gratification

Eight days after my first bloggery: I am shouting into the silence as yet. In a few days the campaign will go live. How will I animate the creature? Lightning? Phlogiston? The divine spark of genius? Sometimes I come over all Professor Rothschild. Reanimation, reincarnation, resurrection, call it what you will the legend of Enoch, Methusalah, and people who live more than their allotted three-score-and-ten have been a recurring motif in myth, legend and fiction.

I loved 'Adam Adamant'

Wonder what Moffat would have made of the 1960's? (Will make?? He is enjoying himself immensely already in 1860's North America -Sequel clue!)

People ask me why a historical novel, I quote them Solzhenitsyn:

“The sole substitute for an experience we have not ourselves lived through is art and literature.”

That really knocks the spots of write what you know, doesn't it?
