Charlie

Charlie Panayiotou (try pronouncing that) works as Editorial Manager for Gollancz. Possibly the only person at Orion with a BSc, he spends too much money on CDs rather than just downloading everything and reads various Japanese comics. If you want to make friends with him, just tell him how much you hate The Big Bang Theory.
