Hi, I'm Ant. I live in North West England, just a 'Ferry Across The Mersey' from Liverpool. I share my home with cats and rabbits.

I am a vegan, write science fiction/fantasy and am a scientist, having an honours degree in chemistry. Been in full-time employment since University. Enjoy trying to solve physics problems, from quantum gravity to the origin & fate of the Universe.

I'm usually drinking coffee, eating out, enjoying art in various forms or watching TV quiz shows. Not too bad at drawing, ok at table tennis, go to the gym; kettlebells, weights, cardio. I spend a few weeks a year in a cave in Spain!

I was born prematurely (have mild Cerebral Palsy) on the original "Star Wars Day" - obviously wanted to see it ASAP! I love animals.

WARNING. May contain spoilers.

Everybody's talking about who Supreme Leader Snoke is in the sequel trilogy of Star Wars. Some suggest he is Palpatine's old master back from the dead as cheating death was, after all, discussed with Anakin. Others say he could be a completely new character.


What if he is something much more fundamental than this? He did say he had seen the rise and fall of the Emp... Read more of this blog post »

Melody Jackson v. the Hound from Hell by BMB Johnson
“I'm going to let that slide because you seemed to have been in the middle of being eaten by a monster.” He was clutching his midsection as if from pain, the squashed remnants of a soft brown cookie squeezing between his fingers as though dough from a pasta machine.”
