It's Mike's 70th birthday today and he's still going strong. He's got any number of projects in the works from new Elric stories to a Doctor Who novel for the BBC to a biography/memoir of his friend Mervyn Peake. Even after all these years and all the books, his curiosity, creativity, enthusiasm, and imagination remain boundless. And he still has time for the occasional game of Mornington Crescent with his readers. So Happy Birthday, Pard. Hope there are many more to come.
