2004.04.23 : New Flat

Some of you recently received an exuberant, triumphal e-mail to the effect that I finally got a proper flat. Here it is with photos (and slightly revised to support the photos I wanted to include):

I'm pleased to report that - just when everyone, including
and in particular me, had more or less given up on this -
I've moved into a proper flat! Yep, after nearly *two
years* of homelessness, I'm semi-rooted again. It's kind
of overwhelming actually  . . .

Anyway, it's an entirely cute little studio flat in
Kensington (well, it's technically just over the border in
Earl's Court, but let's agree to call it Kensington . . .),
with a nice kitchen (fully appointed), extremely pretty
little bathroom (shot here prior to major towel purchases),
12-foot ceilings (and fun club-house sleeping arrangements),
a fold-out dining table with *four entire chairs*, and -
visitors take note! - an actual couch! Huge picture window
with a nice view out back and amazing light in the mornings
(shot from up in the no-girls-allowed secret clubhouse).
Great street and neighborhood. Also closer to Hyde Park, so
I'll spend more time running in it, and less to and from it.

And, mainly, overarchingly, I'm out of that fleabag hotel.
Yes! Glory!

Come visit. Comfy couch in Zone 1 London; hard to argue
with. (Also, broadband.)

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.
