* MoneyDearBoy: He has admitted to writing some of his works (in particular, the first four books of TheHistoryOfTheRunestaff and the first {{Corum}} trilogy, each of which were dashed off in under a week per book) simply for quick cash.
-->"The Hawkmoon books were written for money and took three days each to do. But I still tried to make them the best I could do of their kind. In the end it's the public who pay me and I feel I owe readers the best value for their money I can produce, irrespective of genre or level of ambition."
