Profile Information

Introduction
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 ! The title ' Professor ' was granted ( 1908 ) by Prince Hapnick of Carpania - as recorded in the Blake Edwards documentary ' The Great Race ' 1965.

Thank you professor for the fine birthday greeting… I am in the process of moving to the Denver CO area, from Utah, and haven’t been on the site much lately so it is nice to see such a nice greeting when I logged on today… Thank you!

Oh, professor it has been so long, do wish me to return?

As you are in Victoria (n times?), best and cheapest is via my website: mark-mywords.co. I have a "buy books direct" link.

Otherwise, if you are visiting the Brisbane Supanova in Novemeber I shall be there selling books and shouting at teenagers.

You sir, have a spry sense of humor! Lessor inventors would have been quite dismayed at the relocation of their vehicular prize! I always enjoy images of new inventions!
