Two Gentlemen of Verona, with apologies to William Shakespeare

About this time of year in 1997--16 years ago, although that barely seems possible--I sat down in front of my very first PC.  I was determined that, having run out of excuses, I would write the novel I had been promising myself for years.  I had some vivid characters and the outline of the plot.

That Friday evening, after a day at work and a light dinner, I wrote the opening chapter of The Zael Inheritance.  (It transpired, in a process that all novelists will understand, that I'd actually written Chapter 7).

After a brief adjournment...

After a break of over 18 months, ::Acquired Taste lives again.  You may want to believe I've spent the interval on a new--or more accurately, first--masterpiece which I'm now ready to share with the world/pimp shamelessly.
