Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later. Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    Reading this piece very much reminded me of my dad.

    A dyed-in-the-wool atheist, was amused and irritated by people who sung Jeruselum under the impression its theology was uncomplicated C of E. He was also very cynical about the Diana Phenomenon — while Diana was certainly more popular than the rest of the royal family at one point, it's hard to imagine her as the centre of an uprising. That level of popularity only happened once she was (safely?) dead.

    I have to admit. Now I just want to listen to Emerson, Lake, and Palmer again.

    Talking of eccentrics, can it really be the case (as Google thinks) that you haven't mentioned Vivian Stanshall on this site?

    Blake – one of my key sources of artistic inspiration. My poet colleague and friend Barry Patterson often performs his homage to blake entitled The Giant Albion's Nightmare –

    I first heard the song on MONTY PYTHON'S FLYING CIRCUS, in the "mattress store" sketch. No, really.

    That, in turn, got me interested in "BRAIN SALAD SURGERY", as it was, to my then-current tastes, the most "normal" sounding thing on that totally whacked-out psychotic album. In the long run, "Jerusalem" remains my favorite ELP song. I really ought to do a vinyl transfer of the LP, as the Rhino CD remastering still sounds "too different" to my ears, even after about a hundred or more plays.
