    Thank you, HD. It was fun writing it and it looks even better in the magazine. Just shows how much Ken cares about his craft.

    I never knew that was speaking to a famous man on the phone just the other day. Says more about me than Ken.
    An honour.

    It was a pleasure, and all the better for your input - and, yes, the jacket looks brilliant. Will stick a copy in the post tomorrow.
