Hello. I'm Gnomon. I wandered onto this site in September 2000 and was captivated by what I found: a chance to write the best Guide to the Galaxy. I've been here ever since, although I took a few short breaks. In those years, I've worked at almost all aspects of building the Guide - as a writer, a peer reviewer, a sub-editor, a curator, an artist, a photographer, and as one of the Editors of the Guide. I'm now back to writing my own entries again.
You can find some of my work at the following links:
I keep track of the stuff I'm working on at a separate page:
