    Along the way my wife and I have started a nanopublishing thing - Colossive Press. At last, the full amazing story of Croydon Spaceport can be told! (I suppose I should stick some of this in the Enclave at the End of Time...)
    Sorry to hear about your father-in-law. Times like that can be pretty tough. I love the Colossive Press. I might treat myself to a Croydon Spaceport mug.

    Mrs PV and I have had an adventurous few years since The Hiatus (as the last few years without the Multiverse may become known). At the end of 2016 we both finished off big contracts and decided to take some time out. We embarked on a 3 month road trip across the States, from San Francisco to New York, via Key West. At the end of it I fulfilled a lifetime ambition and wrote and (self) published a book about the trip. It’s part travelogue, part discovery about America’s early history and Liverpool’s links with the Confederacy during the Civil War. It’s called The Warm Breath of an Electric Pixie and is published under the pen name of JJ Topping. Check it out at www.jjtopping.co.uk.

    On Monday I told my boss I’m retiring at the end of February and on Tuesday I rediscovered the Multiverse. Which is nice.

    Hello all, it’s splendid to be back amongst you.

    I trust you are all well and that the last few years have been good.

    I’ll have a wander around and catch up on the conversations.

    Shakey Mo would be a brilliant doorman!
