Funnily enough, this user's real name is not ntnon.
The nom-de-plume 'ntnon' is derived from this programme, and it seemed like a reasonable enough pseudonym to sign up with here, there and severalwheres. ntnon is English, but currently residing elsewhere, hence the quite-probably odd edit-times... Trained in History and an avid reader, interests include all kinds of comics (and particularly those by Alan Moore), other kinds of comics (DCU, some-MU, Zenescope, Oni, Dark Horse, Image, Evil Twin, Gemstone, EC, etc., etc.), books (and particularly those written by Jasper Fforde and Simon Hawke among MANY others), more books (and particularly those published(!) by MonkeyBrain Books, McFarland, Smart Pop, Open Court and Mojo Press), even more books (Science Fiction, Wold Newtonian things, books on comics, Fortean Times collections, etc.) TV programmes (comedies - Maid Marian and her Merry Men, One Foot in the Grave, Blackadder, etc.; quiz shows - QI; time travel - Journeyman, Seven Days, etc.; crime/detective/action - Jonathan Creek, Martial Law, Charlie's Angels, Mission: Impossible, The Avengers, etc.; Spy-Fi & ITC-made and -distributed programmes - The Prisoner, The Wild Wild West, The Persuaders!, Department S, etc., etc., etc.), the individuals behind them all (writers, publishers, actors) and much, much more.
(ntnon has just recently discovered that The Emperor holds remarkably similar interests: Forteana, Comics, Steampunk, etc.)
Tending to create pages only about things which ntnon knows a bit about (or can find out quite a bit), it may be noticed that edits tend to drift as links lead to other (non-)pages or inspire the "need" for more information. So, attempting to create a page for MonkeyBrain Books necessitated the need for editing Chris Roberson (author), leading back to Clockwork Storybook, and then forward to Lou Anders, John Picacio, Peter Coogan and Rick Klaw (and thence to Mojo Press, etc.)... all good fun!
First forays in Wikipediaing were as the direct result of frustration over lack of easy-access to various information snippets, leading to an attempt to add things here for the ease of the next person searching for such information. This will include obscure facts, Quite Interesting information, historical reference material, etc., etc. (Discovering by chance that Paul Sieveking was listed as the son of broadcaster Lance Sieveking led to ntnon attempting to research that individual and create a - hopefully accurate, noteworthy and interesting - page for him. And so it goes...)
ntnon is particularly pleased to have originated, edited and/or contributed large amounts of work to some, most or fewer of the following pages (in no order whatsoever):

Win Scott Eckert
Checker Book Publishing Group
David Lloyd (actor)
EC's M.D. (comic)

Daniel Hall - ditto, according to Wikipedia
1963 (comic book) - ditto.. how interesting
America's Best Comics - these too!
People Like Us - ditto again. Great programme
...and others, major and minor.
What a To-Do
Sooner or later, many, many more pages and edits will occur. Including some long-promised or implied ( Checker's publication history; Fill in comic-y birthdays; later information on the FT; sort out Dez Skinn; Russ Cochran; Taboo; flesh out some of comics companies - Zenescope, Evil Twin, Eclipse - more EC; etc., etc.)
There is a way to search-link to these, for my own ease of reference.
