OOOPS Forgot to retitle the page. Quite like Untitled 98 though. This page is actually:

if you want to get ahead...
Actually I rather liked this idea. The tear in the canvas was destined to get wider, the creature within would have emerged week by week. The hats were to change periodically - I had a British redcoat’s hat and a crash helmet and so on. The hats would eventually have referred to stories from the Ministry. The monster in the tear is a reference to demon-calling in the Song.
BUT the bounce rate from this page was awful. Somehow it does not promise the browser whatever it was they were looking for. But if anyone feels strongly that the macaque should return please go to here and write MONKEY!!! in the comments box.

Monkeying Around - this page has a couple of entries that explain what on earth I think I’m up to producing a site like this. Blogging Around is the blog proper. I’m hoping I’ll occasionally come up with something worth reading here - and that I’ll manage to avoid sounding like an arrogant, opinionated curmudgeon when I do.
Eventually this site may become a destination for lovers and creators of fantasy art - click to find out how that may come to be.
FRIENDS - fairly obvious: this page will be populated with links to Fantasy sites, artists sites, friend’s sites, poetry sites, writer’s sites. Maybe even your site!
The Library Blog - may not have pages for some time. This fictional blog will be written by residents of The Library. It will reveal the grand scheme behind all the WKJ fantasy novels.
Ministry Rat - back in the 90’s I wrote a short novel: The Ministry Rat. The story was great but the writing was
A Song of Ages
History - the history of Earnor, the known and the hidden, and the lost history of all the Ages of the Earth - lies
Clearly, a fantasy novel cannot be properly introduced merely by providing incidentals - no matter how extensive.
That’s all. Hope you enjoy it.
