Personal Quote:

Marillion has not been renamed, though I offered to do so. I was tired of people assuming he was named after the band. I had never heard of the band when I named him, though I've heard a lot about them since. [Interestingly, the band Marillion were paying tribute to J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Silmarillion", another fantasy novel] See more »

Trivia:

The first science fiction book he ever read was "Have Space Suit - Will Travel" (1958) by Robert A. Heinlein. Among other authors on his favorite reads are Robert E. Howard ("Conan" series), J.R.R. Tolkien, with whom he shares the same middle initials. See more »

Trademark:
