Anyone Out There?

Regarding the 'Who Reads My Books?' posts I've been putting up on here. I've got one left to post and haven't seen any more. How about more from the men and women out there, like those shown in Mike Rowe's 'Dirty Jobs',  who tighten up the nuts and bolts that keep our civilization running? I'm not saying the previous ones are abnormal, but maybe some are a little intimidating to those who, say, simply work on a production line and enjoy SFF. I'd like to hear from you people - don't kid yourselves that you're not interesting. And don't forget, prior to 1999 I was shovelling shit too.

i've been waying up doing one, but i'm not much of a sharer (of personal stuff), mainly because i'ver become fairly boring. i'll have another think though if you're short.

Neal, you have to realize there is only 12 or so folks out there that are reading the books. the rest just collect the fancy hardbounds to post here. nobody wants to read about depraved sadism and psychopathic brass.

where are the rabbits? the playgrounds? the curious goat who loved waterfalls?

I was put off by the early one who had photos of his bookcases. I'm moving house, so all my stuff is in storage, and the house us such a wreck it'll take months to get it ready for a pic. Thankfully, the pictures are now just of the people so I may well send one in, once I stop feeling like a fraud (I only recently made my first comment here, despite my long-term lurking. Everyone else seems to have been part of this little community for ages).

We're just not that intresting. Face it, we sit around reading books wishing we had chips in our head so we can multitask... while reading through the chips in our head.

Where exactly do we send/leave the bio, Neal? I'd be more than happy to send one in, I just havn't as yet spotted the means with which to do so!

Neal Asher said...

serp, and others here, send your bios along with a photo(s) to ndotasheratvirgindotnet

Vaude, I haven't got a fucking clue what those links are showing.

Graeme said...

Vaude with the best wishes and no insult intended.... you really watch some shit. I'll never get those moments of life back I feel robbed :-)

Everyone else, just write a piece, you know it makes sense.
