Brian H Jones
Brian has variously been described as a curmudgeon, a reprobate, a humbug, and a scurrilous hypocrite. Those are descriptions that his friends apply to him. And his enemies? Well, with such lexically accomplished friends, who needs enemies?
For further insights into Brian's character, it may be noted that when his adorable wife, Marie (author of 'Dangerous Journey'), is being especially adorable, Brian can be suffused with almost searing flashes of optimism and then believes that life holds more than political prevarication, financial failures, moral mendacity and spiritual spuriousness. Sometimes he even thinks that writing is one of life's more elevated activities. And then, sometimes, he doesn't..!
