Profile Information

Introduction
IF ONE TELLS THE TRUTH , ONE IS SURE , SOONER OR LATER , TO BE FOUND OUT .

Mad , bald and dangerous to know . Long term interest in late Victorian period - in particular the 1890s literary scene . Perhaps , considering my demographic , more neo- victorian than Steampunk , but enjoy dressing the part etc. Visits to nearby Ballarat include stays at the gold rush era 'Craigs' , site of a visit by the crew of the Civil War raider ' Shenandoah' c. 1865 .

HEALTH WARNING - THE PROFESSOR IS A SCEPTIC WITH A SENSE OF HUMOUR AND ANY CONTRIBUTION HE MAY MAKE TO FORUMS SHOULD BE IGNORED !

Increasing age and infirmity may also be cited to excuse the more extreme aspects of his behavior . The title ' Professor ' was granted ( 1908 ) by Prince Hapnick of Carpania - as recorded in the Blake Edwards documentary ' The Great Race ' 1965.


PATRON SAINT ( BY ACCLAMATION ) OF THE ' LEAGUE OF ECCENTRICITY ' .

" Thanks for the kind words , Jack . ' Sherlock Holmes and the Gunman ' drifted into ' adult themes ' before I set it aside . I guess it never quite settled between comedy and drama . The collaboration was enjoyable . "

Ah my dear friend of many minutes!

I see that you received your professorship from Prince Hapnick of Carpania.  Delightful aristocrat, if not a bit prone to the abuse of good desserts . 

I look forward to hearing about your future endeavors and lectures!
