A Message From Alan Moore

That fabulous fabulist Alan Moore, creator of Watchmen, V for Vendetta, Halo Jones and much more, including the keenly anticipated novel Jerusalem (bigger tha the Bible apparently) was given a draft copy of my book and very kindly wrote the following:

“John Dowie is the archaeopteryx of alternative comedy, in that the fossil record makes no sense without him. Now, with The Freewheeling John Dowie, this appallingly funny and delightfully miserable man delivers hard-won insights into the great cycle of life and love and death from the vantage point of a great cycle. In this marvellous book, one of the most important comic voices of our time explores Britain, Europe and his own life in the effortless glide that comes with any downhill journey. I genuinely cannot recommend this cornucopia of middle-England majesty too highly.”

Alan Moore

To which I say, “God bless him”.  And all those who share it.
