Earthquake. She’s now, what, about three months old? It’s been fascinating watching her body develop from shapeless ball of fluff to a streamlined pouncing machine. Her face has become more feline, less rounded. She hasn’t lost her cheeky grin though.

Bootsie. Sarcasm is her thing.

Of course they’re not daily photographs. Hush now.

Here’s Bootsie…

A very brief update.

Firstly, I apologise for the radio silence. There are no excuses. To save my family’s honour I shall commit seppuku in just a moment.

Next up, another photo:

She’s called Earthquake, because she’s a natural disaster😉

I suspect now that you can see why there’s been a great deal of radio silence. Acclimatising Bootsie to Earthquake has been a long, slow process. I’m not convinced that Bootsie will ever quite be happy with her, but they have been witnessed playing together when they think nobody’s looking.

More twing-twang

We have Kai from Heavenly Sword to thank for the twing-twang.

I’ve been given a considerable amount of anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxants and painkillers, but my back’s still not with me just yet.

That’s what my back did recently. I’ll be up and back to blogging the world in a few more days.

Stiff published in TTMC.

Issue One of The Thinking Man’s Crumpet is now available from all good retailers (well, directly from the publisher, anyway), including my heartwarming tale of demonic cults, taxi drivers, and apocalypse.

Visit to bag your own copy. If you’re without MySpace, drop me an email and I’ll pass you the contact details.

Responses so far for Stiff include:

A story which opens with the protagonist being assaulted by an inflatable Shagging Sandie sex doll would leave some writers wondering how to follow that. You needn’t worry when Troo Topham’s on the case, in Stiff.

– Rog Pile.

Trudi Topham – Stiff: A sinister black magic cult bent on destroying the world. Their leader, Lloyd, sics an animated blow up dolly on our narrator, Dave the taxi driver, a crusader against evil who’s had that Madonna in the back of his cab and has saved the earth at least three times. But can he best the sadistic Shagging Sandie doll? Let’s hope not! Something tells me Michel Parry would love this one.

– Dem, Vault of Horror.

So there you have it! Buy it now!
