Archer's Asylum

I'm a big bloke (7ft tall) and I am forever reading. This will mostly be my thoughts as I am reading and possibly a review or two. You may know me as Archer.


I am basically a lurker. My life revolves around my wife, my cats, Books, and entertainment.


I'm working on building and setting up a forge and I'm generally one of those people who can be found causing or in the middle of mischief somewhere...

1. Are you named after anyone?


Nope, my parents thought it was cheesy and cliche to name a child after other people. And it'd piss off the family members who the child wasn't named after

Friday. I was not having a good mental health day.

3. Do you have kids? 


Not yet but I want kids that I can pass on all my erm.... skills to.

Probably, I'm funny when I'm feeling social. I can be a bit of a distant prick and I'm not the best people person but I am tremendously loyal to my friends 

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?


Only when I'm breathing, or talking, or thinking... The fuck do you want from me? I'm British...
