    I can’t remember what books I read under the age of seven, though given that I was in reading recovery, I would wage that it was not a lot. I blame it on the fact that the books where so extraordinarily mundane. The first book that I actually wanted to read was The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, followed by the rest of the series. After which it was Raymond E Feist’s Magician, and following series. I haven’t really put down the Fantasy and Science Fiction since.

    There is an idea of a Gentleman Jack; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable... I simply am not there...
