Hi guys,

Another newbie introducing himself.

I have been lurking on the forum for the past month or so and I thought it was time I came out from the shadows.

I live in Rochdale (come on, somebody has to) and I only came across Robert Rankins writings by chance.

Not so long back I was in my local library looking for novels by Ian Rankin (The guy of Rebus fame) and spotted an unusual title "Nostradamus Ate My Hamster" nearby. The title intrigued me so I picked it up and read the intro on the inside cover. I thought it sounded interesting and had a look at the other RR books. I settled on "Knees Up Mother Earth" as my first (of many as it has turned out) book by Robert and read it cover to cover without a break.

Not many authors can keep me so engrossed in a book like this new guy I have just discovered. I feel as I have missed out in the past years now knowing that such literature has been out there, but maybe not, I am experiencing the thrill of reading these novels for the first time unlike some of the posters here asking which one to read and enjoy again.

I think that's enough toot from Rochdale

Best wishes to all

Ian

I wonder how many people have stumbled upon Ian Rankin while searching the shelves for far fetched fiction?

And hello, from a fellow newbie.
