My name is Steve Hargett. I’m the father of two grown children, one of which has two growing children of her own. I live in Leeds, UK.
I write for my own enjoyment but I am pleased that people take the time to read what I write. I do publicize my writing, so clearly I am not too bashful. I publicize through my Twitter account @Chiropterarex, my facebook page and my Google+ page. I also usually tell the creator I am writing a review of their work, via Twitter, Facebook or other means.
Despite this courtesy contact my reviews are my genuine held opinions. My reviews will appear mostly positive as I am currently writing reviews about creative work I have enjoyed. After all, I am writing primarily for my own enjoyment as I said above.
I also review some publications on request and so far everyone who has requested I review something has taken obvious steps to be sure that their product is something they can reasonably expect that I will like. I’ve been asked to review comics and a BBC TV show.
Until recently if I include images on any page it was only after asking permission from the copyright holder. Or the images were supplied to me by the copyright holder. I have now started using cover images without permission as it is customary to do so for reviews. I also sometimes use promotional images from the official pages of TV programs I review. If I use more than this, for example sample pages from a comic, it is still after being granted or obtaining permission.
The title image for this blog was originally created with the Badger program by Michael Carroll. In 2013 however Michael made me a new one, much higher resolution and more 3d.
May 2014 I took part in Lawgiver: A Celebration of Dredd, a convention in Birmingham dedicated to Judge Dredd and ran two panels. Later in 2014 a character named Judge-Tutor Semple appeared in the e-novella The Third Law by Michael Carroll, as you can imagine I was very thrilled.
I hope you enjoy what you read here.
