Some Inside Story Facts about Zack

Zack doesn't know where he came from. He's not even sure what he IS. But since they went to Cornwall for Gordon's eleventh birthday and learned something very interesting about where Gordon's special powers might have come from, Zack has been giving the matter some serious thought... It seems to him likely that his existence and current residence inside Gordon is down to the same mysterious Entity that conferred those special powers upon Gordon in the first place. After all, is he not numbered himself among the special powers that Gordon has? (I asked him why he gave "Entity" a...

About Robin Chambers

I was born a long time ago, in the middle of the Second World War, a few hundred yards from Gladstone Dock - then the biggest dry dock in the world, and a prime target for the German bombers. The Liverpool Overhead Railway started from there, and ran all the way to the Pier Head. My mum and I lived at 126 Knowsley Rd. For two years we must have had each other for close company most of the time. My dad lived there too, but not until he came home from the war. My brother lived there as well,...

The Ice Warrior

In 1994, Zaire were favourites for the World Cup. Many people hadn't even heard the name of this African country before it made its first colourful appearance in the World Cup Competition in 1974.

But one man stood head and shoulders above all the others. He was their centre...

If you haven't read Book 1 yet, it is likely that you won't have come across the word 'aisling' or 'aislinn' before. Dream is the nearest one-word in the language we now speak; but it falls short of all that 'aisling' means. According to Gordon's sixteen greats grandmother, "an Aisling wizard finds and tames wild things that wander through the tangled world of dreams. He travels in the wonderland...

Some Inside Story Facts about Myrddin

This is an artist's (Rembrandt's) impression of Myrddin in one of his earlier manifestations. He's carrying the Ten Commandments, written in the language spoken at the time in that part of the world. His name was Moses then... I first realised it was Myrddin when I read the Book of Exodus, which clearly chronicles the words and deeds of a powerful wizard. Moses had the finest teacher of course, so the story goes: one who understood that magic could confound and thus convince of a power that passed all understanding. The people would never see this Supreme Sorcerer - the...
