Short biography
Harry Pearson has produced six books, contributed to a
dozen more, written a weekly sports column in the Guardian
for ten years and helped make the football magazine When
Saturday Comes half-decent for nearly two decades. When not
painting toy soldiers, building a Wild West town in 1/72 scale or
feverishly trying to work out how many more Macedonian
phalangites he needs to finish before he can restage the Battle
of the Granicus, he spends his time staring wistfully into
space wondering where the years have gone. He lives in
Northumberland. Contrary to all previous assertions, he does
not own a spinet.
