Author has written 7 stories for Fantasy, and Sci-Fi.

Writing is my life. I write for my own enjoyment, and no one else's, though it is always an added bonus when someone is pleased by my work. I write badly, and I write well -- it all depends on the day of the week, how hard I'm working, what's happening in my life, and, hell, whether or not I'm on my meds. In short, every new piece I take on is not unlike a pregnancy: I always end up going through labor, and the outcome is always different. (Though there are a lot more miscarriages than you usually get.) So if you read my work one week, you may find yourself enjoying a post-apocalyptic sci-fi (like Gwydion); the next week, you might end up vomiting in the toilet, either because of the realization that you've wasted ten minutes on something totally pointless, or because you just read a horror story about ass-rape.

Any and all comments will be considered in the revision process, though I may not always follow your advice, 'cause I'm generally a dick that way. If you dislike my work, no hard feelings -- I'll still review yours objectively, if I have time, and if I feel like it. I tend to agree with lccorp2 regarding reviews -- if your stuff sucks, I'll tell you so. It would be an insult from me to you if I simply lied and gave you the non-descript, "I love it" review, when I know that I don't "love it." Though I'm generally not as harsh as lccorp2 -- mostly because I don't have the same talent for criticizing badfic that he does -- I will be honest, and I will be just. As in, if I do love your story, I'll say so -- as many of you already know, eh?

(Oh, and, for the record: not kidding about the ass-rape.)


FictionPress writers you should be reading - now:

McQuinn: Not just fantastic 'cause she's fluent in Hebrew -- she's a great comic/sci-fi addition to the fray, with complex characters you wouldn't believe. Enjoyed the witty dialogue of Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Firefly? Read McQuinn's Raccoon Wars for the same level of expertise, but a whole new dose of originality. I also hear that Devoid and Devotion should be coming back up in a while, so stick around and read through the first few chapters of that for an example of her knack for the horrific and the beautiful.

nomadsland: Like everyone else with half a brain, I'm tired of fiction written without purpose. Nomadsland provides an intelligent analysis of any number of topics, from life to love to psychology, in entertaining, thematic narratives. She does a wonderful job of balancing character with plot, regardless of whether she's writing one of her "muses," a short story, or a novel. Read her work if you're up to both an emotional and an intellectual challenge -- because that's most definitely what she's got in store.

If you are not on this list, but you know I like your work, it's because I haven't read enough of it lately to be a good judge of it. Put up some new shit and notify me, already!
