It’s DONE, all 260 odd pages of it!!! Or, at least, it’s done until some publisher decides it “needs more work” or spots 23 spelling mistakes or wants panel 25/4/2 redrawn with Stalin positioned right of frame.

Reactions thus far from copy-proofers are good to glowing, but now the hard work of finding a publisher begins. After seven books, it continues to puzzle me why what I do doesn’t interest a publisher sufficiently to support me beyond a single publication. They’ve all made considerably more money out of my efforts than myself, but such is the lot of the creative.

So, anybody out there interested in a totally nerdy romp through one very esoteric fillip of cycling history?
