After some serious badgering from well-meaning but violently-inclined folks surrounding, I have joined ‘Twitter’.

It promises to get a decent workout when I return to Oz in July/August for the Kindling caperings.  I particularly look forward to sharing with my followers the goings-on at the Byron Bay Writers Festival (August 6-8).  The card features Bret Easton Ellis, author of ‘American Psycho’ and ‘Less Than Zero’; Fatima Bhutto, niece to assassinated Pakistani President, Benazir Bhutto; and a host of other luminaries.

Barring any restraining orders I may incur, a comprehensive Twit’s-eye view is guaranteed.
