    • I am a fiction writer from up Canada way. I write speculative fiction, usually involving futures studies though occasionally I delve into social satire and commentary. I also write poetry, which will be among the first posts I make to this site. I am always looking for feedback and criticism; Legitimate criticism, not that insincere feel-good crap a lot of people throw at creative people. If your criticism or review is just “good” or “I liked it”, that is fine, but answer one question: why. Why is it good. Why do you like it, why don’t you like it. And tell me, as a reader, what you think I could do better.

      Anyway, to get more pointed about Me, I like long walks, not necessarily on beaches, but around town, through wooded trails, up and down dirt roads. I enjoy being around my cats, except for the times that they are being annoying which could conceivably be any time of day. Or night. Usually the night. I like my girlfriend and her crazy crochet skills.

      I am a cousin of Canadian writer Robert Kroetsch (he and my great grandfather were first cousins.)

      I also really enjoy anime and most things Japanese. Why no fanfic? I don’t believe in it. I am all for original ideas, which is why I dig anime in the first place. Most anime have predictable plot structures, but completely original stories. If I could write for anime, that would be my major life dream achieved.

        • Orson Scott Card is my all-time favourite author, with the Shadow series and the Speaker series coming in high on my list of favourite books.

          My favourite book is Ten Billion Days and One Hundred Billion Nights by Ryu Mitsuse. Originally published in 1967, this book has history, religion, philosophy, science and future speculation all in one 300 page tour of force. I cannot effuse enough about this book. Pick it up today, you’ll appreciate it.

          I have a soft spot for Charles Bukowski.

          I identify strongly with Hunter Thompson.

          I recommend One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and The Illuminatus! Trilogy by Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shea.

          My own brand of music. Genre-less. Experimental. A lot of piano, but that’s not all. It also comes with a sham-wow......

        • My heroes list is short: Charles Bukowski, Hunter Thompson, Chiyomaru Shikura, Hideaki Anno. Each for this own reason. Bukowski for being an all around badass; Thompson for doing life his way right to the end; Chiyomaru for being the Japanese equivalent of God, being a writer, game designer, sound engineer, screenwriter, director, et cetera; Anno for bringing the world Evangelion and also for struggling through crippling depression to bring us some of the best stories out there.

Let’s have a real conversation. Not that one word garbage. Not that emoji-laden pictographic excuse for communication the kids are doing. I mean we brew a pot of coffee every hour and chat till the rooster calls. How about it?
