Author has written 18 stories for Fantasy, Horror, Humor, General, and Supernatural.

I have been off of here and everywhere else for the past six months. I work in retail, and the holidays are a pain. Many of my readers are from outside the US. The holidays here start in November with Thanksgiving. Anyway, if this was not bad enough, there has been quite a bit of intrigue and disruption going on at the work place. Hell, I could write a book about the last year. I have also been unwell and moody.

Although I have not read anything over here for the last six months, I have read a good many novels. I am primarily interested in the fantasy genre. Unfortunately, most fantasy stories are this site are not about elves and fairies and the like. They are usually about vampires and angels. I personally think those stories belong in the supernatural section here, and I have read a good many of these that are good stories. I just wanted to read something about Kobolds and goblins. So, smack me. I will say it is amazing what happens when you key in Kobold in the Amazon search engine. I am not sure how "Sirens of Titan" fits into all of this, but I have read that on my hiatus as well.

Anyway, for those that I owe readings to, be patient. I am back in business. Unfortunately, I go from the newest emails to the oldest. That is because they are the top of the inbox. So, Mr. Ragna Baguy, I will be getting to you soon. I have to get through a couple of Narq's stories first.

As for my stories, I will be updating soon. I have four chapters for The Story of Olivier and two for Bane of Rendsberg. I will post these once I get things back under control.

Hymn to Gibberish by Jareth the Monk reviews
This is about a dream I just woke up from about a half hour ago and the computer was on, so I wrote it down real quick before I forgot about it. Quite honestly, I wouldn't blame you for thinking me a psycho for this.

This is a parody of Lovecraft's story Shadow over Innsmouth. This is intended for a good laugh and that is all. Besides, the Lovecraft stuff gives me weird ideas for present projects. Rating for lude innuendo!
