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!

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!
