...or hamadryads, but they’re another thing entirely. It seems that an awful lot of you experience the same kinds of problems with automatic doors, automatic taps, automatic blowy devices and automatic automatics. We’d all be pretty crap on the Starship Enterprise, wouldn’t we? yes, wait... that was meant to be rhetorical. Why am I expressing my ignoramity out loud. What a loser.
Soapy- I too have stopped peeing in public loos. I now pee in public. It’s just part of my thing. Performance art.
Cor - yes, I have sold my soul to the devil.
Too bad - the sequel to Double Eagle is called Interceptor City and will be with you in a year or so. What books of mine should you definitely read? Eisenhorn, Riders of the Dead , and Fell Cargo.
Xhalax - Do it! Thank YOU for coming along to the signing, it was lovely to see you.
Big - Dancing? In Cambridge? Next weekend? We are so going to capture that!
Toymachine - Yes I am a psyker.
Rory - Seems I might be coming to Edinburgh soon, and Games Day Germany, which might please several of my regular posters.
Jack - I’m the whole silver-skinned, purple afro Magus. I didn’t grow up on Starlin comics without bonding them into my DnA. Trolls? I don’t know anything about trolls.
Dom - Welcome Dom, to this blog. Rooney too.
Big - Thanks for the listing.
Ross - Oskar Viltry is a truly lost hero. Thanks for remembering him.
Kelticemt - Thanks for reading. Beltayn is a wonderful person to be.
One day gingers will rule the earth - Yes, your wife is having an affair. With an insurance salesman.
Xhalax - Do it! is the overall command of the Alpha Legion. You’ll find it in several places.
My local, independent art shop is closing down. I have been frequenting the shop for its entire 19 year tenure, first buying supplies for my mother, the artist, Emma Abnett, and latterly for my wife, Nik, whom you all know.
Lots of stuff in the shop is on sale, and I had my eye on a skeletal wooden hand that I had been admiring for nigh on ten years. Picture the following scenario, bearing in mind that the proprietor’s name is David.
Nik - It’s the fist of Horus.
David - Horus... as in Warhammer?
Dan - Yes.
David - I’m not into the game, but I read a lot of sci-fi and I’ve just been reading a big volume of some of the collected novels.
Dan - That’s my job.
David - ...What’s you’re name.
Dan - Dan Abnett.
David - You’re kidding me!
The rest of the conversation went pretty much as you’d expect. Anyhow, the following day, I popped into the shop with a copy of Legion and duly signed it for him. I still can’t believe, after all these years, that we didn’t know each others’ names.
If you’re there David, say Hi to everyone.
