Wiffle Lever To Full!

Daleks, Death Stars and Dreamy Sci-Fi Nostalgia…

Late Night Line-Up

Bossk arrived at the front door this morning! And so did Walrus Man. Not in person, naturally – no, we’re talking Star Wars figures again. If the real Walrus Man had turned up in person then the dog would have had his flippers for breakfast. Grrrrr! But yes, the Ebay collection is still growing slowly, and I’ll shortly be turning my attention to Obi-Wan Kenobi (original 1977 Hong Kong imprint grey hair version, please). Not that I’m overtly fussy about these things.

In Wiffle terms, it’s been an odd couple of days in that (gasp) OTHER PEOPLE are reading the book as we speak. Or at least I’m guessing they are, although it’s entirely possible they’ve all just used it as a handy prop for a succession of wobbly tables.  But I have a small box of Wiffle Levers in the front room, and have so far dished out copies to my friend Wez (who’s in Chapters 2, 5 and 10), my friend Stuart (Chapters 2, 5 and 6), and my friend Pete, who isn’t in the book at all but he once played bass for David Bowie so naturally he has special dispensation.

Oh and my parents have a copy as well, and are no doubt thumbing through it saying ‘That’s not true… that’s not true… that’s not true either…’ before investigating the possibility of actually taking out libel action against a member of their immediate family. And I’ve today ordered another 100 copies, which I had to (brace yourself) PAY FOR. So if anyone would like a signed and personalised copy in exchange for an entirely reasonable £10, then feel to drop me a line before they start clogging up the dog’s living space. I’ll even draw pictures on it if you like.

In the meantime, I’m still tentatively working on a potential second book, and it now contains the immortal line ‘Would you like a Mini Muffin, Stormwatch?’ which I actually heard spoken by my friend Matthew, who’s in Chapters 3, 4, 6 and 9 of Wiffle Lever To Full!.

And the epilogue.
