Introduction From Colin:
FROM AUNTY IVY TO KHUBILAI KHAN
where my stories come from

My primary school teacher's name was Mrs Boyne.

She once told my mother at a parent interview: "Your son is a complete dreamer. He'll never amount to anything in this life."
I still think that was a pretty harsh judgment on a seven year old. But she was right, of course, I was a dreamer.

It was my greatest asset.

It was about the time I first read Jules Verne's Michael Strogoff. To get my hands on it, I had to endure a slobbery wet kiss from my Aunty Ivy, but I considered it well worth it.
By the end of that first afternoon, my 7 year old dreamy self was hooked on classic literature.

Every week my Aunty Ivy took the train down from London to visit with us in (what was then) rural Essex, bringing with her a collection of Classics Illustrated comics. She picked them up cheap in the markets in Chingford.

There were some Beanos and Victors mixed in, but I threw them out. My treasure was the comic book versions of some of the world's greatest literature.
I read all of Jules Verne in an afternoon.
