  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Jasper Fforde is a British science-fiction, Fantasy, and detective mystery novelist, oftentimes all three at once. He's the mind behind such offbeat series as Thursday Next, Nursery Crime, and Shades of Grey, and famous for his humorous style, both silly and highly intellectual, playing quite liberally with meta-fictional concepts (And for the puns. Tons and tons of puns). Fforde is an aviation buff and enjoys flying, and before publishing his first book, The Eyre Affair, in 2001, he worked as a cameraman on such Hollywood productions as Goldeneye, Quills, and Entrapment. Recently Fforde has announced his entry into the young adult market with his novel, The Last Dragonslayer.
