Ed fairly coruscates with London lore and expertise, let alone contacts and "connections". He’s the author of London: Exploring the Hidden Metropolis,The London Compendium, A Literary Guide to London, East End Chronicles and West End Chronicles. How "in the know" – let alone irreverant – is he? Well, how does a 10-year-track record at the scurrilous satirical rag Private Eye grab you? His Literary Guide to London has been described as a "mine of information… this book is a must for literary enthusiasts". He has also worked for the Radio Times and Mojo, the rock ‘n’ roll magazine, and co-wrote Fodor’s Rock ‘n’ roll Traveler USA and Rock ‘n’ roll Traveler USA Great Britain and Ireland.
