Me in The Times.

The Muswell Hill and Crouch End Times, that is. Is there another?



That's me, grinning inanely, holding a book. My book. Did you know I'd written a book?

D'oh, why can't you edit posts?

What I tried to say in that deleted comment above is: the byline makes it sound as if you personally suffered some tragedy that started with a death at a tube station, rather than that being the plot of your novel.

Yes! That's what my wife said. Ah well. Maybe some people will buy a copy out of sympathy. Or maybe they'll just be totally confused.

Debra Broughton said...

What I don't understand is, if you died at the Tube station, how come your holding a copy of your own novel?

Steve Kane said...

He got better.

Why's it called a Tube Station? The tunnel doesn't move, the train does, so that's never made sense to me. Please ignore me.

roger said...

Debra and Steve, why do you think I have that fixed grin on my face? I'm a re-animated corpse.

Richard, it's a common misunderstanding. The London Underground was actually invented by a Danish engineer called Dr Claus Tube. Hope that clears up any confusion.

Roger, I've always suspected that you are an animatronic puppet or a computer generated character.

Richard said...

Roger, thanks for participating in my continuous education of all things British. When can I start bugging my local Borders to order your book for me?
