I enjoy SKYPE, for some human contact in a day of writing. If you are interested, contact me through this website or directly at dmthomas@btconnect.com If you seem like congenial company (I'm sure you are if you're looking at my site!) we can arrange to SKYPE. Question me, criticise me, moan about the weather, whatever...

I shall also be taking up my blog, after a long absence.

Welcome to my new website, which has been a much appreciated birthday present from my wife Angela, with the expert help and advice of our friend Howard Speirs. I hope you will enjoy it, and your responses via contact page are most welcome.

The editions listed, showing the cover, are not necessarily the most readily available (or cheapest), or first in the UK, but a sample. If you go into Amazon, or Abe Books, you can easily find what you need and what's best for your budget.

This website supersedes an earlier, dmthomasonline.com
Since that was set up in Canada and I've lost touch with its provider, I can't change it and for some reason many people (myself included!) can't enter it. If you are able to do so, it does provide a lot of detail, and you may find it useful and interesting. You can contact me from that site too.

I shall be updating here regularly, with NEWS of forthcoming events, publications, etc.. After a year's absence I'm also writing in my blog again --sporadically! (See LINKS.)

I hope you enjoy browsing.
