Bio:

I am an English Poet who was born in 1959 in a house that was then in the County of Essex, but which now lies within the London Borough of Havering. I was brought up from a very early age just outside Southend-on-Sea (Essex). I spent three years at the University of Kent at Canterbury (Kent), and have subsequently lived In St Albans (Hertfordshire), Guildford (Surrey), and Romsey (Hampshire).

I have released numerous volumes of poetry covering the period from 1973 onwards. Most of my poetry is inspired by the world around me, particularly the natural world and the people of whom i am fond. Other sources of inspiration are the works of other poets and books on philosophy, science, and religion. My poems include a number of parodies, jokes and poetic aphorisms based on these readings.

I firmly believe that writing poetry allows me to release the thoughts in my head which would otherwise drive me mad.

General Information:

I am single and currently live in Romsey, Hampshire.

As well as the books released here, "Selected Poems (1973 - 2014)" has be released through the Smashwords site.

Elstron Table Games : The Rules of Play

By: Mu Pi Chan

The table games described in this book are based traditional tables games which have been modified to fit into a fantasy world where the inhabitants use a duodecimal numbering system (Base 12), and for whom the hexagon and numbers which are multiples 6 are of fundamental importance. When developing these table games the aim was to produce games with simple rules (easy to learn) which lead to complex outcomes (hard to master). Or to put this another way games which are...

The games described in this book originally started life as part of a novel about the fantasy island of Tarron and the hominoid races (Elstron, Assen, Durns, and Jowr) that inhabited it. Within this fantasy novel The College of Arnur, in the Elstron Kingdom of Westron, played a key role in the story.
