On the BBC list of most influential stories of all times, that is. Well. Not me personally, My Grand Novel still needs to be written. But the name I chose for my larger than real life alter ego. Also my favourite novel, so I’m good. My second favourite novel is number 4 - it worked out well.

I do have a slight objection though to a list that puts Harry Potter on 15 while completely ignoring the existence of JRR Tolkien...

Modern Day Genre fiction, including some of the biggest books and movies (and not just the 6 obvious ones), including the whole Harry Potter thing would not even exist without Lord of the Rings, guys.
