Attention has been pointed, this afternoon, towards this gallery of SF authors and their writing spaces. Personal favourites include Andre Norton’s Great Wall of Quiff and a pic way down the bottom, where Arthur C. Clarke has pushed a Sri Lankan rentboy off his lap to make room for a monkey.
I’ll readily admit to being a complete geek for this sort of thing: artists and their artistic processes fascinate me, and I’m often as keen to learn about the story behind the creative process as I am to experience the end product. Writers, in particular, are a source of anthropological fascination: I devour author biographies and am in a constant search to find whatever it was that made each particular author so memorable and me so…. well, lot of weather we’re having, innit?
Anyway, in the spirit of full disclosure and acting like famous artists in the hope that it’ll rub off, I present my own writing space. Well, spaces. Well, space and writing.
