Lives in Cape Town, subject to the inexpressible whims of cats, academia and an Evil Landlord.
Likes: non-realist fiction, procrastination, Dorothy Parker, sf b-movies, cooking huge meals for friends. Low reprehensible passions: spaceships, superheroes, swordfighting. Dislikes: hot weather, cherubs, dial-up modems, karaoke, African political realism, Tom Cruise. Vices: hyperbole, pulp literature, unmarked quotation, Earl Grey tea. Virtues: efficiency, waffle, occasional intelligence.
Breaks easily. May fizz suddenly without warning in presence of certain catalysts. Will growl at grammatical malfeasance. Highly self-conditioned to only fall in love with fictional people. Gets high on words.
