Happy birthday, manfalling.
He writes "weird fiction" (his description) and blogs about life in Japan. His excellent new website (with links to published stories) is here. Check it out!
Yeah, I know I'm his dad and I'm prejudiced, but he really is good. If I thought he was crap, I'd just keep quiet about him. His best stories- Celibate Jayne the Hammerhand for instance- go places no-one else has gone before. And he loves language. The characters in his Jabbler Mons universe speak a dialect that melds King James Bible with Lancashire with Lewis Carroll- yeasty, preposterous, hi-falutin. He's funny but he can also hit the heights and make your spine tingle. Sure, I'm proud; he's an original.
