About this author

Imaginist and purveyor of tall tales Adam Fitzroy is a UK resident who has been successfully spinning male-male romances either part-time or full-time since the 1980s, and has a particular interest in examining the conflicting demands of love and duty.

Recently, Brandon Shire asked me to write a post for his blog; this year he's highlighting books his readers recommend as 'gems you may have missed', and MAKE DO AND MEND fell into that category. It was of course a great compliment and I was happy to oblige - but at the same time it reminded me that I've let life overwhelm me a bit recently, and I haven't posted anything here for a very long t...

Adam Fitzroy and 3 other people liked Elisa Rolle's review of The Eagle's Wing:
The Eagle's Wing by Cimorene Ross
" The Roman "romance" (it sounds strange, isn't it) was quite popular in the '80s, even if it didn't reach the popularity of other subgenres like Western or Scottish Medieval romance. And maybe, it was more common in Europe than US, probably cause,... " Read more of this review »

I've rated this book with five stars because of the useful information it contains, but in reality it's more like 4.5 or 4.75 because it certainly isn't perfect. For one thing, all the travel information assumes that you are using public transport, w...more

This is a fascinating and inspiring book. It's probably a little light on the nitty-gritty of investigative techniques, but no professional in any field will be in a hurry to give away his trade secrets so that's understandable. Having recently falle...more

I really didn't enjoy this book. The stylistic tricks got on my nerves, but of course its main flaw is also what will be the great attraction to many people - the personality of the central character himself. I have no way of knowing whether or not i...more

Henry Jenkins
“Fandom, after all, is born of a balance between fascination and frustration: if media content didn't fascinate us, there would be no desire to engage with it; but if it didn't frustrate us on some level, there would be no drive to rewrite or remake it.”
Henry Jenkins, Convergence Culture: Where Old and New Media Collide

Terry Pratchett
“There is a rumour going around that I have found God. I think this is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys, and there is empirical evidence that they exist.”
Terry Pratchett

“... Likewise, Oscar Wilde asked an English journalist to look over 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' before publication: "Will you also look after my 'wills' and 'shalls' in proof. I am Celtic in my use of these words, not English." Wilde's novel upset virtually every code of late Victorian respectability, but he had to get his modal auxiliaries just right.”
Andrew Elfenbein, Romanticism and the Rise of English

Mark Twain
“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”
Mark Twain

Friedrich Nietzsche
“That which does not kill us makes us stronger.”
Friedrich Nietzsche
