I would like to say a few words to my audience.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If anyone wishes it, they can find tidbits of my work on http://www.deadjournal.com/users/joanfic/ . What I post there may not see the light of day in full stories, but you're all welcome to visit and leave your comments, and if you find something you'd particularly like to see taken up, do tell me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have just started a roleplaying game/joined writing effort at http://groups.msn.com/Sunwalker . It's dark fantasy, heavily influenced by Clive Barker, Neil Gaiman and the World of Darkness, and I find it utterly gorgeous. I'm in need of dedicated, creative players/writers, so if you're up to something new and different, come and take a look. Honestly, I rarely get so excited over something of my own making ;).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

http://www.scottmccloud.com/comics/zot/ is an on-line issue of a comic book series, which I consider the finest work of literary art ever given life upon this humble planet. To say it has changed me would not be saying enough.

I encourage you to try and read it. Who knows what you may find?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I've been long interested in the following:

Filk - Heather Alexander, Leslie Fish, Michael Longcor and Tom Smith specifically.
*Scott McCloud's work.
*Alternate worlds, primarily Tolkien's Legendarium.
*Short science fiction stories, Greg Egan's most of all, though Asimov's as well.
*Dark fantasy fiction, mostly Clive Barker's late Eighties work.
*Objectivism.
*Writing for comics and television. I've some ideas in development at the moment.

If you also are interested in any of those things, do e-mail me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thanks in advance.

Enjoy the show!
