Author has written 10 stories for Chronicles of Narnia, Firefly, X-Men: The Movie, and Doctor Who.
In case you're wondering, "anastigmat" is the name given to a type of lens -- four glass elements, cemented into two doublets -- used in Zeiss cameras manufactured in the early part of the 20th century. At the time it was quite a revolutionary piece of technology, though it's hardly a patch on the multiple-element lenses of today.

"What it comes down to is that my interpretation of my work is really immaterial. I'm not really a believer in art and music being institutionalized or put in galleries or stuff like that. I think art is something for the use of the public. It's for the public to interpret it and use it almost like a sustenance to life. So it's the interpretation of the listener, or the viewer, which is all important. Authorship isn't questioned, you know." -- David Bowie, 1994.
With that in mind: feel free to swipe anything you wish for your own stories. All I ask is that you drop me a line so I can enjoy seeing my characters in somebody else's world.
For the curious: my view of Narnian cosmology is perfectly depicted in this painting by Hieronymus Bosch. (It's the shuttered covers to the 'Garden of Earthly Delights' triptych.)
I regret to inform you that I can't promise regular updates. However, I do not start works-in-progress without knowing how they will end, and I write with that ending in mind. It takes longer to get there, is all.
Come discuss things Narnian over at NFFR -- they've archives, a forum, and a fascinating array of writers.
