Alice Bower is a native Peckhamite who is now living in Iceland and is the editor of an English/Icelandic folklore magazine which, as of yet, has never been printed. Or written (or at least not since 2006, when she was 11. But that wasn’t her. She was too preoccupied then with finding a way of picking her nose without people seeing). But she is desperate for Facebook likes and plans to one day put the whole thing on the internet in English. It is intended to cover everything from pagan gods to dried fish and scantily clad men who wrestle underwater.
The first story she ever wrote was about a sticky plaster machine that malfunctioned. She is still hopeful that, in years to come, it will be a West End musical complete with a chorus of midgets. Besides the sticky plaster story, most of her fiction is based on her life experiences, which started in 1994. That is why there isnâ€™t much of it.
