Now sign up as as 'Textualsphinx', not 'Sphinx', since numerous Sphinxes have appeared in Potterdom since I first chose the name from "Goblet of Fire" in September 2000 to Review with. A very kind reader, Corgi, has collected all my stories together and given them stylish fonts and colourful backgrounds. You can find them at http:///people/Corgi/textualsphinx.fic.
Many thanks Corgi.
Another kind reader, JOdel, has done an exquisitely illustrated version of my best story, "To Sever the Lining from a Cloud". You can find it (and many other gems by JOdel herself and others) at her site "Red Hen Publications". Here is the link: http://
Gryffindor Super-ego, Ravenclaw Ego, Slytherin Inner Brat - but few quizzez are so Freudian.
I usually get Sorted to Gryffindor. I don't know why. My fics are Slytherin-sympathetic with pronounced Ravenclaw leanings.
A random selection from my favourite books:
Zadie Smith: "White Teeth" (A Must-read if you want to understand England.)
Bertolt Brecht: "The Good Person of Setchuan" and all his theoretical writings.
Augusto Boal: "Theatre of the Oppressed" (a classic. More radical than Brecht).
Michel Foucault's "History of Sexuality".
Charlotte Bronte: "Villette" (Better than "Jane Eyre", neurotic where "Wuthering Heights" is psychotic.)
Primo Levi: "If This is A Man", "If Not Now, When"
Fantasy (for the under-20s)
