Arthur, hanging round my front door.

A refugee from the mind-numbing, soul-destroying worlds of banking and insurance, I have at last found peace and happiness killing off deserving victims and restoring order in a world increasingly in need of justice.

What amazes me even more is finding that people like my short stories, and even buy the anthologies they're in. Yes, yes, I know that's how it's supposed to work.

It's still amazing.
