My name is John Schoneboom and I am your host here at Magic Stories. I am a writer, for example of plays and novels, for example Fontoon from Dedalus Books, and also a bit of a programmer. Thus Magic Stories is a sort of inevitable intersection of these two seemingly different things, almost as if you had thrown, say, a pair of unwanted glasses and tomorrow's headlines into a bowl and waited to see what eventually crawled out. It's a terrible analogy but you can get a different one next time you load this page.
I have also previously served as a clandestine fixer of rope swings for children in a patch of green near a school, and I once won a fight with a bully when I was seven by getting hold of his arm and simply spinning around and around until he started crying and begging me to let go, which I promptly did, and watched him spin off into the arms of his laughing sister by the curb.
