Robert Mammone

Romantic. Raconteur. Kangaroo rustler.

Sadly, Rob is none of these. Rob has been a follower of genre since at least the mid-1970s.
Book collector, Doctor Who fan, semi-retired podcaster, comic book
shop counter jockey, writer (once!) in Doctor Who Magazine and with
pretensions to writing fantasy and horror, Rob is the sort of fellow
you can happily embrace while wondering why you're doing it. More of
his maudlin thoughts can be found at his ill-tended blog
