Author has written 20 stories for Doctor Who, Labyrinth, and Captain Harlock.

Back in the last days of the 20th C, I was pretty active on usenet Doctor Who fandom on adwc and a in a few fanthologies, hence the age of a lot of this archived material. All of this was over a decade ago, and I make no apologies for the 10-year case of writers' block brought on by studying Japanese in the interim and watching and reading way, waaaay too much Leijiverse material. Japanese has played havoc with my writing style, but hopefully no-one will hold it against me. Much. I'm also a huge fan of both Nagai Go and Ishinomori Shotaro, but thus far I've managed to restrain any impulses to write fanfic featuring either Kamen Rider Ichi-go or the psychos who pilot Dynamic Pro's super robots, having found that if I lie down for a bit, they go away. Besides - Kamen Rider SPIRITS and Shin Mazinger are way more awesome than I could ever be...

For the jaded - I don't write sappy romance, gratuitous porn or slash. I prefer to write character driven adventure. Most of the time, at least.

If you come for Harlock - try sticking around for Taliesin & co. - despite being very loosely based on some by-now obscure and very borderline Doctor Who references, they are actually totally self-contained stories, that don't actually need any extra background familiarity to enjoy. They're as much Arthurian fanfic (and a couple of obscure folk-tales...) as anything else. Ill-health makes it hard to work, type and not just break my IT kit, but I do plan to try and finish what I started!

Red Shift Blues reviews
A couple of years after the events of Frozen Harvest, the Arcadia's resident loudmouth finds himself having to deal with a demon or two from his past. Sorry folks, this one has to go in the "M" section for language...! Main characters just Ali and Harlock. CGI'verse. A little extra for those waiting for Corpse Flower to continue!

Forever Autumn reviews
My favourite journalist, in a little Faction Paradox story set partly in the 11 Day Empire from 2002 I thought lost forever on my hard drive. BBC books based canon, with a couple of historical domain characters I'm extremely fond of, the little scamps...

By Any Means Necessary reviews
This is what happens when I've come across one too many slash fics with a certain pairing... I needed an antidote, and you have been warned! Incidentally, this is a totally stand-alone bit of "what if", and is in no way related to my ongoing continuity...

Sympathy for the Devil
A series of Drabble Challenge responses first posted on ADWC late 2003early 2004... some knowledge of the books from the BBC around that time, and the Book of the War by Lawrence Miles would be a distinct advantage...! A silly little exercise, but fun... NB: This was back in the days when "drabble" meant 100 words (excluding titles and notes), though you could "double" when needed!
