Rank #5: Happy Birthday Michael Moorcock

Podcast cover
Read more

One of the twitter gang tipped me off a few weeks ago that December 18th is Michael Moorcock's birthday. It took a while for the penny to drop, but when it did and my brain was penetrated by the copper and grub of ten thousand grasping fingers, I was taken aback for a second.

December 18th is also my brilliant and long-suffering partner Phil's birthday, so I made her read something because CONTENT!

So happy birthdays all around!!!
