About the Author

Jem Roberts emerged in Ludlow, Shropshire in 1978 and studied English, Film & TV at Aberystwyth University. His twenty years’ experience in magazine publishing set him in good stead when articles for comedy fanzines Publish & Bedazzled and Kettering led to the chance to lay bare the world of ISIHAC in the Fully Authorised history of the show, in 2009. The True History of the Black Adder followed to acclaim in 2012, and besides writing for children, published The Frood, an officially endorsed history of The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, in 2014.
