A.K.A. Richard, Rick, Ricky, Spotted Dick, Spaceman, Linoleum, or what you will.
Is a slightly odd thirtysomething bloke from the North-East of England with an equally crazy imagination, though he keeps most of it in his head. He used to be an evangelical Christiannote up until 2015 but is now an atheist. Has also participated in H2G2, AlternateHistory.com (prior to a self-requested ban), Counter-Factual.Net as well as having a personal blog and another for his attempts at fiction.
The name comes from an imaginary land he created as a boy, and the subject of some of his recent attempts at stort story writing. This place is not an Egopolis, but rather the username is a reference to the fact he sometimes feels like a foreigner in his own country.
Published worksnote he has written with their own pages, some unfinished, include:
- The Genesis of Jenny Everywhere: an attempted origin story for the open-source heroine- or at least, one of her incarnations.
- Grangefield Park: another story dealing mostly with a sidekick (Megan Whitehead) of Jenny Everywhere, and set in a version of the future. Also incorporates an imperialist version of Lyniezia.
- The Maybe Invasion: a companion piece to Grangefield Park which deals with the Lyniezian invasion referenced in the previous story from the point of view of Megan's younger sister Alice.
- Not Quite A Treasure Chest: another story featuring Jenny and Megan in a Standard Fantasy Setting having to deal with a mimic.
- Princess Lucidity To The Rescue: don't ask!
Works without their own pages (yet):
- A Not-So-Brief Encounter (a work in progress version may be found here, ; unfinished short story set in the "normal" Lyniezia, dealing with the probable Break-Up/Make-Up Scenario of a former Childhood Friend Romance couple when they meet in a deserted station.)
- The Joker and the Kissing-Gate (here), a prequel to A Not-So-Brief Encounter featuring the same couple as teenagers, visiting a real-life local(ish) beauty spot which is a favourite of the author's.
Works pages he has launched include:
