Author has written 2 stories for Sci-Fi.

Why SuperGreG?
It actually came from others (taking the piss), so I fully adopted it... with a logo ;-)

What I do:

-ex electrician & muso/vocalist-Traditional Metal (retired from both).
-IT dude (current).
-Play way too much Elder Scrolls (mostly TESIV & V - on PC). Also, Witcher 3, Fallout 3, New Vegas & Fallout 4 all deserve a mention.
-TV series over movies. Mostly Sci-Fi/Fantasy (Fringe, Game of Thrones, The Expanse, True Blood, Young Justice, any old Trek, B5, Farscape, Firefly and many many others...).
-Reading various novels and comics.
-Listening to Maiden/Dickinson, Judas Priest, Anthrax, Tool and Iced Earth (esp the 'Something Wicked' storyline & Dystopia).

Currently Favoured authors:
Asimov (esp Foundation/Robots), Tolkien (more for storytelling/worldbuilding), Peter David (in various mediums), Neil Gaiman (in various mediums), George R R Martin (Wild Cards, Ice & Fire/Game of Thrones), Bill Willingham (Fables-DC Vertigo), Mike Carey (The Unwritten-DC Vertigo), Brian K Vaughan (Y the Last Man-DC Vertigo), Grant Morrison (various-DC Vertigo), and of course others.


I've set up base-camp here on FictionPress primarily for the posting of a sci-fi story that I'd originally started picking at several years ago, but subsequently left behind for a lengthy period. During the past few years, I'd written several 'original' character-driven stories set in the Elder Scrolls universe. All of those stories are effectively connected, both to one another and the universe that they take place in. As I'd suggest, not the kind of 'retelling' of all the same stories and same characters that seems perhaps sadly typically of many fanfic stories, but more 'original' stories taking place somewhat offstage from what has already been told.

Those TES stories can be found on the fanfiction sister site, posted under same author name (SuperGreG).


Regarding "Of Man and Gods: Alliance and Empire"

What's it about? I suppose that it's a somewhat eclectic epic sci-fi construct, with some fantasy elements viewed through a sci-fi lens. A somewhat naively idealistic civilisation comes into contact with another civilisation and together they seek to build a broader space-faring community. Certain things pass perhaps unexpectedly easily, while others not so easily at all, as alliances and empires rise and stumble.


Regarding "Of Man and Gods: Seeds of the Alliance"

Book Two picks up where Book One leaves off, continuing the tale upon the new world, where the 'seeds' of the old worlds are planted all in the one place over a lengthy period of time. Though now living as relative primitives, the descendants of the races of the old worlds are free to build a new world, without much of the influence of what came before. A very different paradigm will emerge over time.

A short story. Vacations were supposed to be fun. They were supposed to be a time to relax, a way to escape. No one can escape the things they've done.

The Vesta star system, home to the two colony worlds of Atrium and Bharata, stands vigil on the edge of colonised space.

Of Man and Gods - Seeds of the Alliance reviews
Book Two continues as remnants of the old Alliance worlds are planted upon a distant new world. With a clean start and fresh perspectives in play, only time will tell whether triumph, tragedy or something else remains ahead for the races of the old worlds.

Of Man and Gods - Alliance and Empire reviews
Book One begins as civilisations of distant worlds contact others for the very time in their history. Some react quite well. Others, perhaps less so. Empires rise and grind against each other. The passage of time reveals whether the tenuous bonds of emerging alliance can hold those alien civilisations together and what legacies they might leave behind in their wake.
