Graeme K Talboys was born in Hammersmith, London. He still blames his parents.
Since then, he has been coming to terms with the fact that he had his head taken apart in the ‘60s (mostly by Michael Moorcock and Hawkwind), whereafter the bits were exposed to loud music from various sources, strange movies, stranger writings, and some downright weird people. It eventually got put back together, but there were bits left over and they never did find the budgie.
Although he would like to go back and apologise to some of the very nice young ladies he knew, he is otherwise content with the current forward flow of time.
If you want someone to blame other than the aforementioned… John Ruskin, William Morris, Pyotr Kropotkin, Nestor Makhno, Dora Black, Mary Midgley, Janet Radcliffe Richards, M John Harrison, John Brunner, JG Ballard, Joanna Russ, Barrington J Bayley, Roy Harper, Angela Carter, and Virginia Woolf were amongst those that also put ideas into his head.
In between being a space cadet and teaching in schools and museums, he has written eight works of non-fiction, seven of which have been published (on museum education, drama, and matters spiritual). He has also written eight novels. The first (written when he was seventeen) was lost on a train. The next two, written in his early twenties, he wishes had been. He has also completed two spy novels, a science fiction novel, and a children’s novel. Another (Wealden Hill) is currently in print.
Having had reasonable success with non-fiction writing and having had plenty of practice at fiction, it is his intention to make it perfect. To that end, he is currently working on something new (which will be allowed nowhere near a train).
