The author in the book.

Most authors will tell you that they put a little bit of themselves into each book they write; however, it is much rarer for an author to actually appear in the book in any place but the cover flap.

There is at least one case where one of our authors actually made it into the artwork, Angus McBride artwork, no less. That honour was claimed by Angus Konstam in 2001 for his book ELI 74: Privateers & Pirates 1730 - 1830.
