I like the "sort of near" Glasgow. :ROFL:

Nice to see a few authors from the south coast. I'm based in Portsmouth, birthplace to one of the greatest authors to have ever lived, Charles Dickens. That's as good as it gets, well other than its naval history.

Hi folks,

I'm up here in Glasgow, Scotland. I've been browsing these forums for a while and decided it was about time to properly join. Writing-wise I write short stories and novels, usually fantasy tinged with horror.

Greetings from Glasgow! I'm surprised to see that many people from Glasgow here - I guess the non-stop rain and wind really boost one's creativity :D

That rain comment funnier than you know! We released a Glasgow-based anthology called Thirty Years of Rain last year ;)

Really? Though 'thirty' is a bit of an understatement in my opinion :D I should check it out, sound cool.
