The John Fowles Home Page
If you came here expecting this to be the home page of the late John Fowles
I am sorry to have to tell you that you are on the wrong web site for the famous novelist and author please click the photo above for a page of information on him
This site actually belongs to another John Fowles altogether, who is very much live and kicking!!
but who is only a budding Web-Author
But as you can see by studying our two photographs that just like Eric the Red the novelist is a Norse of a different colo(u)r
I was born in Sherborne Dorset, England and lived there for most of my life except for 10 years after schooling in Sherborne away at Imperial College London then
with Rolls-Royce in Derby England and in Montreal Canada and finally ending up happily in New Jersey
this site is intended as a repository and guide for some of my favourite things
Sorry I have so many ideas for pages for my site
All I need now is the time to write them
For the time being items not yet started or completed have temporary "Under Construction" pages
For any surfers here in a hurry click here for a quick selection of what I think are my site's highlights that I would love you to see Site Highlights

Uncle John's HTML Introduction
this sprung from an idea that came to me when I read the guestbook entry made by my nephew Simon Vint on 24 January 2002
"PS. Might have to learn more about this HTML business.."
Note:- HTML is the "language" used to communicate with your
computer's browser e.g. Internet Explorer
"HTML" stands for "HyperText Mark-up Language"
If that makes you feel any better!!
A section devoted to a series of tutorials on a wide range of computer and internet tips program(me)s features and problems
A "technical" site that I helped write and organise
JOHN'S CHAT ROOM (Preview) and please
Note due to the inexplicable actions by a number of very stupid persons (or robots under their
control) who insist on making entirely uneccessary and stoopid entries in my guest book . I have introduced a password
system that only real people will understand.So you will initially be presented with a special "Guardian" page with
instructions which only a bona fide live reader can follow.
e-mail me to complain or whatever!!
