There was a documentary film on Henry Morgan, the Welsh Pirate, last sunday on French TV. Quite interesting, even though there was an obvious lack of research on the part of the authors (I think it was an English film...):
not a single mention of Lanolin Brows, Omophagia Ankles, Thanatology Spleen, Muscovado Lashes nor even Spermaceti Whiskers!!!! As though Morgan was alone in Panama! Rubbish ;-)

Thanks for that, Ronan. Sorry I didn't acknowledge your post earlier -- it slipped past me!

A dainty Disch...
Today I finished writing my 334th story!
This is a landmark for me because it means that I am one-third of the way through completing my big writing project of exactly 1000 stories!
To be more accurate, when I was one-third of the way through writing my 334th story I was one-third of the way through completing this project.
This 334th story is entitled 3331/3 and makes a nod to Thomas Disch, author of the excellent novel 334, by having a main character who has the same name as one of the main characters in that novel...
Wheels within wheels...
... maketh clocks!

There is now the possibility that THE SMELL OF TELESCOPES will be republished next year or the year after... More information on this when I know more!

A great collection - I often re-read it.

That's excellent news. I really want to read that. Such a great title.
Hope it's sooner rather than later.

Hi. Regarding the mentioned new edition of The Smell of Telescopes, I just wanted to let people know that it has now been released - an illustrated hardback from Eibonvale Press. Sorry for the possibly commercial plug, but I thought people would like to know, since they seem interested.
