What can I say but a very special thank you to all of you who voted for me in the SFX readers' poll for top author. You got me in at number ten, beating such upstarts as JK Rowling, Philip Pullman and Arthur C Clarke. Not to mention that French chap Verne.
I really can't thank you enough, well I can, and I'm trying to now. And you know me well enough to know that I'm having a little sniffle.
So who is this Terry Pratchett bloke who's come in at number one?

Cheers and love and laughs.
And thank you very very much.

Well done Robert, #10 is an incredible achievement and very much deserved. Plus you get about 5 or 6 mentions within the magazine AND you are the answer to one of the questions on the final page quiz...woohoo!

Next stop...conquer the world Smile
