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 baseball bat and a few unidentified hairs into a bottomless pit 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 snuck past the Chinese Army into the Happy Valley Racetrack without a ticket, thereby gaining access to the 2000 New Year's Eve celebrations that featured pretty much all of your enormous Hong Kong film and pop stars of the day.
