Bruce Sterling told me I was talented and ripped my work apart in the same breath, which will probably be the pinnacle of my career.

I created The Weather Centre, a forum focused on becoming a published, professional author and on brainstorming ideas. I'm a member of The Review Game and The Globe.

WHEN I have fears that I may cease to be
Before my pen has glean’d my teeming brain,
Before high piled books, in charact’ry,
Hold like rich garners the full-ripen’d grain;
When I behold, upon the night’s starr’d face,
Huge cloudy symbols of a high romance,
And think that I may never live to trace
Their shadows, with the magic hand of chance;
And when I feel, fair creature of an hour!
That I shall never look upon thee more,
Never have relish in the faery power
Of unreflecting love!—then on the shore
Of the wide world I stand alone, and think
Till Love and Fame to nothingness do sink.

John Keats

Sleep (working title)
The trees grow black fruit—good for making pies. If you eat it raw you spit out seeds like caviar. The juice is purple and stains your teeth. That night you'll dream of rot and sharp angles, abandoned things, the growth of mold on concepts.
