Hi, I'm Alex

I've been on Fiction Press for a while now and I'm beginning to feel old. So, first off, I promise to contructively criticize your stories. However, if it is simply terrible angst, I will tell you that too. I am a firm believer that poetry takes considerable talent. Fun Fact: the "poem" called Swirling Vortex of My Demise is a joke! I just wanted to see if anyone would actually take it seriously. And some of you did! (if you liked it then you are lyrically impaired)

ok, holy cow, I just realized how much stuff I have uploaded onto this profile! If you are interested in my writing might I suggest: "Calico Jack", "In the Beginning", "Truth or Unthruth", and "Where are the Ones Who Came Before Us?".

7-13-10 Been away for awhile. I don't really admin the Fantasy Worlds Community much anymore. So, Imagunna say that the story list is set.


and now for something completely different:

good quotes:

"Thus is the excellence of God magnified and the greatness of his kingdom made manifest; He is glorified not in one, but in countless suns; not in a single earth, a single world, but in a thousand thousand, I say in an infinity of worlds!" -Giordano Bruno (credited)

"I regret that I am not clear as to what you intend by Aryan... If I am to understand that you are enquiring whether I am of Jewish origin, I can only reply that I regret that I appear to have no ancestors of that gifted people." -J.R.R. Tolkien (1938) in response to his German publishers

"Someone is boring me, I think it's me." -Dylan Thomas

The fairy tale discusses what a sane man will do in a mad world. The sober realistic novel of today discusses what an essential lunatic will do in a dull world " - G.K. Chesterton

"Don't we want our children to resist authority?" -Eve Ensler (wait! what?)
