PDE: his life and times


You’ll be relieved to hear that I don’t intend to subject you to a recital of my life and works.

Instead I invite you to peruse any or all of the following documents.

    • Follow the menu links above or below to discover these fascinating items:
        • A detailed curriculum vitae
        • A pictorial biography
        • A bibliography
        • An auto autobiography
      • I don’t know how long this link will persist, but there’s a brief BBC television feature from I think 1985 about Games Workshop – I feature in the first few moments. Dungeons and Dragons – BBC Archive

This web site, given its subject matter and purpose, is inevitably all about me. However nothing I’ve done, by way of work, rest or play, has been done in isolation; on the contrary in every sphere of my life I have been alongside and in co-operation with others. It would be invidious to name individuals here, and in any case I’m confident such individuals would be horrified at the idea of my doing so. Therefore I’ll simply say thank you. You know who you are.

The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.
