Author has written 12 stories for Horror, War, Fantasy, General, Love, Supernatural, Action, and Religion.

I'm Nate. Reactionary monarchist, lumberman, bibliophile, language enthusiast, part-time conlanger, Irminist chaos magician, spinner of tall yarns. I mostly write pseudo-medieval horror/fantasy, or (gasp) poetry that actually uses metre (and sometimes it even rhymes).

My favorite novelist is J.R.R. Tolkien. My favorite poet is J.R.R. Tolkien.

My biggest influences as a writer are Professor Tolkien (obviously), Robert E. Howard, H.P. Lovecraft, Egil Skallagrimsson, Robert Heinlein, and the guy who writes the "Real Facts" on the Snapple lids.

My taste in music varies indiscriminately between folk/world, punk rock, metal, old country, and gangsta rap. The greatest band of all time is Led Zeppelin; this is not an opinion.

Where is the German's Fatherland?
Is his the pieced and parceled land
Where pirate-princes rule, a gem
Plucked from the Empire's diadem?
Ach, no, no, no!
Such is no German's Fatherland.

Where is the German's Fatherland?
Then name, o name the mighty land!
Wherever is heard the German tongue,
And German hymns to God are sung,
This is the land, thy Hermann's land;
This, German, is thy Fatherland.
