It's the same sense of fairness that means that, sometimes in the cracks, while writing about other things, he takes time to punctiliously acknowledge his influences – Alan Coren, for example, who pioneered so many of the techniques of short humour that Terry and I have filched over the years; or the glorious, overstuffed, heady thing that is Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable and its compiler, the Rev E Cobham Brewer, that most serendipitious of authors. Terry once wrote an introduction to Brewer's and it made me smile – we would call each other up in delight whenever we discovered a book by Brewer we had not seen before ("'Ere!' Have you already got a copy of Brewer's A Dictionary of Miracles: Imitative, Realistic and Dogmatic?")
