Michael McCaffrey

Jeff, whose real name is Michael. It’s a funny story, unfortunately it’s a funny story that isn’t actually that funny, and so we won’t bore you. Read a children’s encyclopaedia cover to cover as a child because nobody told him that wasn’t what you were supposed to do with those. Jeff is a Terminal Discworld addict, home brewer and semi successful scientist, and enjoys long moonlight walks through Skyrim. His main problem is though, that he will read anything, literally, anything literary. This has lead to the complete lack of shelf space remaining in his house.
