Here's another open thread for you. Post what you like, rant, rave, advertise, get involved in long convoluted discussions that don't necessarily have to be about SF, or science, just don't get silly now.
Having just received Jupiter War to edit I'm going to be busy for a while.
I’ve been an engineer, barman, skip lorry driver, coalman, boat window manufacturer, contract grass cutter and builder. Now I write science fiction books, and am slowly getting over the feeling that someone is going to find me out, and can call myself a writer without wincing and ducking my head. As professions go, I prefer this one: I don’t have to clock-in, change my clothes after work, nor scrub sensitive parts of my body with detergent. I think I’ll hang around.
