Kim's Guest Writer:
Albert Einstein's brain is found in a cardboard box,
lawyers ask for family members to claim it, stressing that in order to avoid
fake claims, they must provide proof of relativity.
From 1993 to 1995 I wrote for
the BBC's weekly satirical show WEEKENDING, which took a long hard look at
the week's news... and then peed on it from a huge height. After I left the
show, I started writing for Vincent Hanna, a political journalist and
broadcaster, writing humorous material for his radio and tv shows. After
his far too early death in 1997, I joined a Canadian based Amateur Press
Association named COMICOPIA (ISSN 1480-9508) [www.comicopia.net] and most
of my writing since then has been for the APA.
Much of my fiction writing since then has been from the genre of so-called
"fanfic", and examples can be found on my web site as well as a couple of
others, where people have liked the fiction enough to offer to 'publish'
As to where the nickname came from - well, I'm certainly not going to
bother you all with it but you can access the full gory details from the
web site below or ask me and I'll E-Mail it to you...
