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
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:
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)
