I’m a theoretical novelist in Joburg. Theoretical because there’s a whole lot of empty space between my skills and my standards. But I’m working on lowering my standards!
In the past I was a medical doctor and in the future maybe I’ll be a school teacher or a vegetarian. I spend a lot of time reading free e-books about heaving bosoms but if you ask me what’s on my kindle I’ll probably say “Proust.”
I collect old Galaxy magazines and I love outdated pulps. When I was a kid my parents would take me to the public library on Saturday afternoons. The science fiction paperbacks were on the lowest shelves. That’s how things began.
