March 2011


Ben lives in Melbourne, Australia, with his wife and two children. He currently works at the Melbourne School of Theology as their eLearning Coordinator. He enjoys reading, writing, music and playing computer games in equal measures. He has an interest in the intersection between theology and the arts, and to that end has written a play based on the life of Saul, a musical based on the Biblical book of Esther, and a novel that is actually a thinly-disguised commentary on the book of Revelation (as he says, "If others can do it, so can I!") For those who might be interested, he lists C. S. Lewis, Peter Shaffer and Neal Stephenson as his literary inspirations. ...more

Anyone for a hard-copy?

It looks like I will be doing a small print-run of the The Ephesus Scroll. I'm not sure how many to do. So, please leave a comment if you might be interested in buying a copy...

Well that was fun, too. Again, we start with a handful of entirely new characters. But before long, the gang's all there (again, in various forms!) The action zips along - somewhat reminiscent of Joan Aiken novels - and the plot takes some enjoyable ...more

This was an unexpected sequel to Howl's Moving Castle. It starts off in an Arabian Nights setting with absolutely no character overlap with the previous book. But the book is written well, and the new characters are interesting in and of themselves. ...more

A fun read, with some interesting characters in an intriguing, magical setting. It was also interesting to compare the original source material with its anime movie version, to see what made the cut and what was changed. Going straight into the seque ...more

The writing is exceptional, even if the plot is almost non-existent (basically it's a frustration comedy). Little to no character development, but did I say that the writing is exceptional? A pleasure to read. ...more
