Miss Lionheart is getting the message out

Found footage of Miss Lionheart in Mr Big's underground bunker - We need to know if she's going to be alright...

To keep up with any new events, you can go to Lilly's website at and sign onto the World of Spies newsletter - unless you're evil, in which case, there's also a
World of Evil Newsletter. ...don't miss out, it's more than your life is worth!  

PS we hope she can make it to the book launch on Thursday...

Book Launch - Frankie & Miss Lionheart team up with a "Mad Science" party

6pm 17 August, Rona Gallery 152 Muritai Rd
RSVP A.J. (Wellington) 562 8062 or on Facebook

Yes, it's book launch time, and I'm excited to be launching my two mad science books - yes Miss Lionheart has been out for a while, but it's better late than never. And Frankie, well she's been so much fun to write - why not go and see the preview?

For previews of Miss Lionheart and the Laboratory of Death  and The Frankie Files click on the respective titles.

"Lilly" and "Frankie" will be there helping out with fun and handing out prizes for the best Mad Scientist &/or Monster costumes! Don’t worry, costumes are completely optional – most scientists, mad or otherwise, look just like ordinary people!

A.J. Ponder’s books sold at Rona Gallery during 3-20 August 2017 are part of the Ponder This exhibition supporting Te Omanga Hospice

There's a hole in my mind
where the world seeps in.
A filtered unknown
infiltrating a closed

There's a hole in my brain
where the facts drift through.
And in the heavens can you say
what allowed them to fall
so far?

There's a whole lot of bull
to make a brain more spongy
than spongiform encephalitis.
The neurons having lost their shape
have struck out -
gone their separate ways to retire
far away from
the simmering sea
of questions:


For there are no anwers
unless you go digging

and find the holiest of holes -

where you'll find emptiness
stuffed with 
lies, damned lies
and money.

A dissolution of non-particulate matters
not particularly mattering
as the tide rolls in and over
a dead sea.

A.J. Ponder

Another week, another poem, I hope you enjoyed it. I quite like this one.  Despite the fact that's it's an awful lot of words for the old saying, "follow the money"

Have a great week, and hopefully I'll have some exciting news next Tuesday. (Nothing to do with cats, I just wanted to add a cat picture, because why not?)
