lickystickypickyme: The Bulwer-Lytton award is given annually for the worst first sentence of a novel. Contestants craft deliberately bad opening lines. Molly Ringle took the 2010 prize with this gem: For the first month of Ricardo and Felicity’s affair, they greeted one another at every stolen rendezvous with a kiss — a lengthy, ravenous kiss, Ricardo lapping and sucking at Felicity’s mouth...
What other genres, asides from that of fantasy and...
I’ve explored a number of different genres in my short stories in both Eleventh Hour and FTL, and I’ve been writing weekly stories for the burst fiction site Elephant Words (http://elephantwords.co.uk/) for over a year and half which have covered pretty much every genre, including both real world and autobiographical work. Ask me anything
Seen Clash of the Titans yet? Any good?
The original is one of my favourite films of all time, I watched it a gajillion times when growing up, and I spent half my childhood pretending to be stop-motion animated by Ray Harryhausen. I haven’t seen the remake yet…I’ve heard very bad things about it… But, then, people said that Prince of Persia was rubbish and I LOVED it. Ask me anything
Do you have an inny or outy belly button?
An inny. What do you think I am? Some kind of freak? Ask me anything
Death Penalty, good or bad?
Bad. Very bad. There is no more tragic phrase in the English language than “posthumous pardon.” Ask me anything
You are invisible for one hour, what do you do?
I think I answered this fairly fully when I wrote Ghost Boy. Ask me anything
Dark, milk or white chocolate?
Dark…not that I never eat milk…but if I want to indulge I’ll go for a bar of Bournville…just hold a chunk in my mouth and let it slowly start to melt… I don’t really like white chocolate, it’s too sweet. Ask me anything
Ever think you'd like more kids?
Sometimes, yeah…I think it might be nice to have a girl. But I’m happy with the two I already have and am in no real ruch to have any more. Ask me anything
Which middle earth race would you be?
Well, the obvious answer is Hobbit, isn’t it? But, if I get to choose I’d like to be one of the Dúnedain. Ask me anything
Hi Ian... who are your favourite comic book...
Hi Simon…oh, crumbs, my favourite writers are probably Chris Claremont, Warren Ellis and Louise Simonson, although I have many other favourites (Zeb Wells being a current fave). Artists…my favourites are Bret Blevins, Travis Charest and Chris Bachalo. Influence wise, Bob Layton and Tim Townsend have been a big influence on my inking (Tim took me under his wing for a while and taught me...
Football, love or hate it?
Assuming we’re talking about what the British call football, I hated it when growing up, then grew to love it after I discovered that it was impossible to talk to other men without knowing anything about it…and ended up having a Gillingham season ticket for a while, and am now reasonably ambivalent towards it. I can still get caught up in a good game if Gillingham or England are...
What's your favourite country specific type of...
Oh, that’s a tough one, I do like a good curry, but I think that Mexican probably wins out. I love a good chilli. Ask me anything
What comic books or GNs are you currently reading...
Hmm…I’m currently keeping up with Uncanny X-Men, X-Men Legacy, New Mutants and Avengers…of those New Mutants is my favourite. Graphic Novel wise I’ve most recently been reading the Scott Pilgrim series, which is excellent. I don’t get a whole lot of time for reading at the moment and tend to read non-comics, and non-fiction, when I do read these days. Ask me...
well if u don't want her can i have her? ;P
That would be entirely up to her. Ask me anything
what happened to your photo gf. she seemed like...
Well, now, there’s a question I’m not likely to answer here, anonymous. Either you’re someone who knows me, in which case you already know the answer, or you’re a stranger, in which case it’s really none of your business. Ask me anything
moar bunnies plz!!! :DDDD
Maybe…at some point…if you’re good… Ask me anything

My Elephant Words story for this week. What do you think?

I do like bunnies, I always will. Just now is not the time for them. Ask me anything
how many great loves do you think we get or do you...
Honestly? I don’t know… I thought I did, but recent events have me questioning everything. Right now I’m more focused on the day to day, meeting the various insane deadlines I have, and just trying to stay happy, rather than the mysteries of love. Ask me again in a year, maybe I’ll have a better answer for you then. Ask me anything

They went away… Ask me anything
Yes, I do, but I’ll be seeing them in a few weeks. Ask me anything
Black, I’m a bit of a goff. Ask me anything
