About Me

mr carapace

Hi! How are you?

My name is Ian Bird. I’m the product of four billion years of evolution and I’m roughly patterned after the traditional human template, entropy notwithstanding. I have about two square metres of skin, which I like to keep close, and two hundred and seven bones. Most humans have 206, but I like to keep a spare so that I have something to pick with people. My ganglial net is reasonably expansive and I dream in both colour and real3D.

I’m an unpublished novelist, currently working on my least unpublishable piece of work to date, and when I’m not doing that I’m raising a family and getting older.

Welcome to my website – this is my latest attempt to make my tawdry scratchings a little more al fresco. I’ll be updating at least once a week, either with an update from my current novel, Trueloves Hide, or with something about the last book or comic that I Just Finished Reading and wanted to rave about. There will be random bouts of Binge Thinking, as well, and some pieces of travel writing, which I call Our Stray Liar, because God loves a pun. I’ve also got an occasional series about writers that I especially admire, called Poets Cornered. I am dallying with the hippie idea of only talking about things that I’m enthusiastic about, that I have really enjoyed, so mad cants and irritable rants probably won’t find a place here…

You can explore blurb and excerpts from novels I have already written as well (I have no pride) but I haven’t yet found a way to upload blurb and excerpts from novels that I haven’t yet written. I need an app or some piece of html code that’s beyond me at the moment, I expect. But I’ll keep looking and let you know how I get on.

Thanks for coming, enjoy your visit…

  1. Ian Bloody Bird. Was I drinking a Carlton Cold while you drank that Guinness? How are you? Where are you? I’m coming to London in the spring. We got old while we weren’t looking and now! And now! Here we are.
