Ned is out there on nedhickey.wordpress.com. Large as life. He is on what I call a script-novel where one reads the film and sees the book. Try it on – it might fit your way of thinking and imagining. Anyway he walks and talks, lives and loves in the life created by Big Bill Nolan in the pub at Ballon between the drawing of pints for the thirsty. What an achievement that writing was in the days before the computer, wordprocessor and probably in the absence of a typewriter, when there was no barrier between a man and his thoughts but the sharpening of a pencil.
Free for the reading, he is and very soon free to download from all the ebooks. Why so? because he deserves it.
