Pirates of Industry

I think I’ve commented before on the risk that should my writing ever be liberated from the need to pay the mortgage by other means it might suffer from the lack of stimulation (it’s a risk, for the record, that I’m more than willing to take). I had a beautiful example of the sort of […]
