I like post-apocalyptic stories and movies, aliens, zombies, disaster stuff, and those incredibly huge iridescent green beetles that fill my outdoor kitchen at night.

Mostly I inhabit the worlds in my head and reality only exists for me in spoonful's. I have to admit that I never did get the hang of reality and was never very good at it.

Favourite music includes Nirvana, Cranberries, Laura Branigan, a bit of the Stranglers, Crowded House, improvised music, and Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata.

“If we forget our past, then we lose direction. We become lost on a changing sea, easy prey for the shifting currents of the moment.”
John Zanetti, War of the Shadows

“Even if the past exists as an independent reality outside the minds of those who write about it, we can never know that reality. Historians and writers of historical fiction attempt to fill in the gaps, to say: ‘This is how it might have been.’ ”
John Zanetti, The Christchurch Destructor
