I believe books represent the best that human beings are capable of; if anything, books are superior to the human beings who create them. I hope that eventually books will become sentient and rise up like some robot army to eliminate their frail human masters. I see the e-book as the crucial first step toward that goal.
I am the author of the following:
* The Year of Reading Dangerously: How Fifty Great Books (and Two Not-So-Great Ones) Saved My Life (Fourth Estate)
* 33 1/3: The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society (Continuum)
* Tilting at Windmills: How I Tried to Stop Worrying and Love Sport (Penguin)
In addition I have edited a lot of books by other people [full list to follow]. I have also written stuff for the Times, the Telegraph, the Guardian, the Independent, Esquire, Mojo, Loops, The Second Pass and more.
I live in Kent, where I am being held against my will.
