From ‘Big Bang’ to ‘Credit Crunch’ – Meet The Historical Characters of ‘Where Angels Fear to Dream’

I hope that some of the information below will assist your historical knowledge and go some small way to explaining the poems.

In this simple tale of planetary history you will encounter a colourful collection of historical characters (and even some mythical ones), places and events, so to further this ‘education’ it seemed only right to introduce everyone/everything in a little more detail. If you the reader wish to add to the Where Angels Fear to Dream ‘wiki’ or help fill the gaps then please feel free to send any contributions:
