Author has written 14 stories for Sci-Fi, Humor, General, Song, Action, and Thriller.
My name's Jim Smith.
I like science fiction and fantasy, mostly, although the occasional horror story may draw my eye. I also like standard action/adventure romps every once in a while.
I'm not much for poetry. Sorry folks. I typically find it to be nonsensical and pretentious. Call me uneducated, but it's my personal preference.
Other than that, there are some categories I really dislike, namely "spiritual" and "young adult" fiction. I'm not much for simplistic moral dilemmas and quandaries, like stories in those categories usually come down to. I don't like romance either, unless it's coupled with a genre I like.
Favorite Personal Quote (from my time as an agnostic): "I will neither confirm, nor deny, the existence... of a greater being."
Other funny personal quotes:
"I am Stalin reincarnated!" (Yes, folks, the name of the game was sugar high...)
"This is was separates the men from the dancing monkeys."
Other favorite quotes:
"Rommel, you magnificent bastard. I read your book!" -- Gen. George S. Patton, Jr. (movie version)
"Get off my plane!" -- James Marshall
"Don't let it end like this, tell them I said something." -- Pancho Villa (last words)
"History will remember me well, for I intend to write it." -- Winston Churchill
"France: Where the money falls apart, and you can't tear the toilet paper."
"If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut." -- Albert Einstein.
A novel-length sequel to Operation: Wolf and Operation Wolf: The Agency. It's not going to be posted here, but with any luck, it'll get published someday.
Upcoming Fiction ( means possible):
Extended "Movie Star Wars". More corny puns! Oh what joy!
The Old Switcheroo. Adults always want to relive their childhood, right? And children want to grow up faster, right? That's Daniel Murray's view.
Industrial Manslaughter. Weird idea I had on a long bus ride with friends. I said I was "revoking them" and it kind of snowballed into a little sci-fi shortie.
