I was up there recently for a few days of rest and gentle, camera based relaxation. Enjoyed it a lot, York is a great place if you like picturesque old stuff and beer. Oh and rivers, they've got some of those too. Yes, i liked it a lot. but still not enough to be looking forward to going up there again tonight because 'the trunk driver didn't turn up and you were the only cover we could get'.
I doubt very much if i'll meet John Allison either, not unless he's unlucky enough to be driving up the A1 at midnight. He does write some bloody good comics though.
