One of the Saturday supplements carried a photo feature on writers and their desks.
P. exclaimed, "They're so tidy! Look, Richard Holmes doesn't have a single book on the floor."
"Bet they tidied up for the photographer," I responded. Anyway, I thought it would be interesting (for my own point of reference as much as anything else) to keep a pictorial watch on the ACHUKA real-life desktop. So here are the first views. For the bizarrely curious, the thumbnails click through to full-sized images.
The Encyclopaedia of Science Fiction, which you can see I've been referring to recently, has a superb entry on Children's SF by Peter Nicholls. It's one of the best reference books I own.
