Hi, everybody.

NOTE: PLEASE READ AND REVIEW "THE BOMB". IT'S VERY LONELY. IT'S BEEN THERE A WHILE, AND GOTTEN OVER 25 HITS, BUT NO ONE'S REVIEWED IT YET. IT'S MY ONLY STORY WITH NO REVIEWS. PLEASE TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK OF IT.

I guess I should say a little bit about myself. Eighteen, male, currently happily dating. I am a huge fan of postmodern/dada/surreal literature, and I think I've adapted those styles to write a lot of my own works. I discover more about that particular them every time I use them though.

I love reading and writing the stories and poems on this website. Honestly, they're some of the best I've ever seen. Try gather.com, the stories don't come anywhere CLOSE to the quality you get at fictionpress.com. So yeah, keep up the good work, everybody!

I admit I haven't reviewed everything I've read, but I am now trying to make a habit of reviewing as much as possible, because I think every story/poem/essay deserves some sort of interpretation. If you review my works, I will review yours :D. And I don't say this to get reviews... It's just a good strategy to find other authors. So when I review your work after you review mine, it is not obligation, but simply because I'm genuinely interested in the stories behind your pen name.

Age: 18

Sex: Male

Marital Status: Happily Dating... It's going quite well in case you're wondering.

Religion/Philosophy: On paper I'm an Anglican, but in my heart I'm a searching Agnostic. I'm also an idealist, and a little bit of a Cynic. Religion is a fascinating topic to me, but I have no idea what to believe as of right now.

Political Standing: I'm an idealist, so what else could I be but a Socialist? World Socialist Movement! Wooh!

School Level: I dunno.

Major Influences: Let's see... I've borrowed a lot for my philosophy of writing from Philip Pullman. In terms of style, I love humor, surrealism, and science fiction. And so I must say that Douglas Adams, Kurt Vonnegut, Anton Wilson, Donald Barthelme, Philip Pullman, and, last but not least, Erin, have all influenced my writing greatly. In fact, I probably owe some sort of a tribute to every single author I've ever read, but that would take a while, and I've probably just unflattered enough people. Oh, and I must also thank life in general for all the inspiration I've gotten.
