2006.12.03 : Between Heaven and Earth II

Plus Special Guest Gothic Moon

And Also Pretty Much About 80% Of What You Need To Know About My Diet (*)

THE DEVIL: Well, well, go your way, Seņor Don Juan. I prefer to be my own master and not the tool of any blundering universal force. I know that beauty is good to look at; that music is good to hear; that love is good to feel … the end will be despair and decrepitude, broken nerve and shattered hopes, vain regrets for that worst and silliest of wastes and sacrifices, the waste and sacrifice of the power of enjoyment …

DON JUAN: But at least I shall not be bored … So fare you well, Seņor Satan.

THE DEVIL: [amiably] Fare you well, Don Juan.

DON JUAN: [saluting Doņa Ana] Seņora: your servant.

ANA: But I am going with you.

DON JUAN: I can find my own way to heaven, Ana; not yours [he vanishes].

- Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

Fuchs is the author of the novels The Manuscript and Pandora's Sisters, both published worldwide by Macmillan in hardback, paperback and all e-book formats (and in translation); the D-Boys series of high-tech, high-concept, spec-ops military adventure novels – D-Boys, Counter-Assault, and Close Quarters Battle (coming in 2016); and is co-author, with Glynn James, of the bestselling Arisen series of special-operations military ZA novels. The second nicest thing anyone has ever said about his work was: "Fuchs seems to operate on the narrative principle of 'when in doubt put in a firefight'." (Kirkus Reviews, more here.)

Fuchs was born in New York; schooled in Virginia (UVa); and later emigrated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he lived through the dot-com boom. Subsequently he decamped for an extended period of tramping before finally rocking up in London, where he now makes his home. He does a lot of travel blogging, most recently of some very  long  walks around the British Isles. He's been writing and developing for the web since 1994 and shows no particularly hopeful signs of stopping.
