Mike's Says

  • "Oddly, The Fireclown was based firmly on Disraeli's political novel CONINGSBY! I wrote it during the period I was writing political pamphlets and speeches for the Liberal Party!"[2]

Notes

  1. "We could all hear them now, very distantly. My Uncle Michael, who was of a melodramtic disposition, said it was the winds of limbo howling across the shores of death." (Chapter 18)
