Yes, It IS A Pathetic Attempt To Ride The Coat-Tails Of People Who Are More Talented. Still, At Least I’m Aware Of It, Eh?

If you feel – as I obviously do – that there just aren’t enough books available to buy which feature my name, then you may be pleased – as I am – to know that Jess Nevins’s latest book of annotations on the Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill comic series ‘The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen’, “Impossible Territories”, name-checks me on page 12 amongst the people thanked for their help with the content of the book.

Jess is, as the book ably demonstrates, a very smart chap whose talents are well-used in annotating the series, but I also like to think that he realises that even his terrific tome can only be improved by the inclusion of my name. Mr N, I doff my cap to you. Truly, the pleasure was all mine.

I’ve got my copy of the book, and jolly good it is too – if you want to let the world of publishing know that there should be more books referring to my rampantly egotistical self, you can vote with your money here.

  1. Any mention is a mention worth having. I had no idea you were such a ‘Leaguer’ though (just what is the collective noun for LOEG fans?)I would have to count myself among them.

  2. It’s probably a ‘litigation of LOEGers’ or something in that vein, I guess… my input was very wee indeed, but Jess is a polite sort, and I do appreciate his acknowlegment.
