Nick Langenberg has always been a bit odd. Born to Dutch parents—and a twin to boot—he was a quieter, more serious version of the other children in the schoolyard. He was also prone to obsession.
After taking her young son to see Star Wars, Dirk’s poor mother required three men to claw him away from the ticket booth, such was his compulsion to view the film as many times as possible. His next fascination was stargazing; his face glued to the telescope for hours at a time. Like most of his juvenile eccentricities, both loves persist to this day.
Now a Scotland based journalist, Dirk’s latest mania combines all his passions into one. Late at night he can be found hunched over his laptop, whole galaxies coming to life on the screen before him. His five book series, “The Moon Penitentiary” has recently been released and his novella “The Memory Caves” is available for free from this website.
