I decided I was going to be the British Masters champ in about 2008. Even though I was 45 at the time. Just turn up in Anglesey (miles from nowhere) and run and win a hollow victory. Alas, Dennis Walmsley turned up from somewhere down South. So not only was I not the masters champ, but I wasn't even the first D. Walmsley master. Galling.
Kinell Lev - first novel I've read since "Boy in the River". Jolly well done, and thanks for the Overall references.
