Apropos of nothing, a whinge: my name has no u in it. It rhymes with "song" not "sung" and "long" but not "lung". I'm fairly used to people adding in the errant u but for some reason, this has been annoying me of late. Seriously, there are only four letters, six if you count the first name too. It can't possibly be that hard. Ed Young is another person entirely, who looks not entirely unlike a Terminator on happy pills. And while he has written more books than me, they're, er, of a different ilk.
