BiographyEdit

Early LifeEdit

Alkis Alkiviades completed a BA degree in "History of Near and Middle East" between 1972 and 1975 in the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London.[2] His background in Near and Middle Eastern history is apparent in his three Fighting Fantasy books set in Titan - some of the names in these books are drawn from the Oghuz Turkic epic, the Book of Dede Korkut, for example.

CareerEdit

"Luke Sharp" as a PseudonymEdit

Luke Sharp is a pseudonym. We know this from a number of sources:[3]

It is interesting to note that the use of "Luke Sharp" as a pseudonym is not confined to Alkis Alkiviades. Robert Barr (16 Sep 1850-22 Oct 1912), the Scottish born crime author who founded The Idler magazine (with Jerome K. Jerome), also on occasion went by the pseudonym Luke Sharp.
