Author has written 15 stories for Fantasy, General, Life, War, Horror, Haiku, Action, Historical, Sci-Fi, and Young Adult.

Hello, I’m Isaac, proprietor of this fine establishment, a pleasure to meet you. I’m a fantasy writer by heart, but I love my sci-fi and fanfiction, and enjoy such things in that derivative and deriving vein.

More specifically, as a proud member of the Australian nationality –though inclined to the concept of world citizenry- I love Star Trek, Naruto, Poland, trying new cuisines, Ireland, all kinds of literature, religious and philosophical paraphernalia, Germany, cloud gazing, Nepal, sleeping, absurd music and absurder technology (Did you see the fucking Metal Storm, Christ that’s awesome), all things Asian, swearing if I’m frank, a good bit of boxing, soccer and general riot inducing sports and videogames, guns, China, Taiwanese food, star gazing, didgeridoo dubstep, violin dubstep, Metalstorm, explosives, kangaroo patties, extra rare steak, thunderstorms, scientific paraphernalia, fantasy and sci-fi among many other things.

I like to describe it as a broad spectrum; most people describe it as nutty.

So enjoy, I harbour all who walk into my presence, just hope you don’t mind a bit of swearing, which should actually be reassurance considering it’s a proven fact that those with a poddy mouth tend to tell the truth more often, and I assure you, my bullshit detector is shiny and decorated, as I use it so often.


Now, let's put some favourites.

Favourite food: Most types of Taiwanese Curry.

Favourite firearm: It's a toss up between the SRM Arms Model 1216 and the Anderson-Wheeler 500. Nitro Express Double Rifle.

Favourite band/musician: Flume, rocking those alternative beats.

Favourite video game: Fallout: New Vegas, something about that grungy, 1950's post apocalyptia really gets me.

Favourite city: Hong Kong, I'd love to move there one day.

Favourite historical combat unit: Polish Winged Hussars.

Favourite fictional character: I'm having trouble deciding between Captain Jack Sparrow and Boba Fett, as funny a comparison as that may seem.

Favourite book genre: Neo-Noir.

The RPS by Luaith reviews
This is a chaotic story, let's get that out of the way. Here's what you should expect: Romance, sci-fi, horror, characters that are considered forces of nature, the mortals that terrify them, zombies, alchemy, con artists, technology competing with magic, abysmal attention spans, sword fights, adventuring for the sake of adventuring... all tied together with comedy. Oh, and Noka.
