    I like to write SF-F but now I like to write it   You know, I was always that "weird kid" - the geeky, nerdy kid over in the corner of the classroom. I mean, I was always the Loner, the different one, on so many levels - my father was Native American, my mother was Japanese. He...

    Sifi/fantasy Reading Friends?

    I don't know a lot of people who enjoy a good sifi/fantasy book. Not sure why. It seems most people I know just watch tv or only like harlequin romances or only read graphic novels. Combined this is their reaction: "Wwwhaat? No sound? No steamy love stories? No pictures? Your...

    Another World

    I love to sink into someone else's world.  I love to immerse myself in a place other than here.  Fantasy feeds my imagination and soul in a way that no other genre can.  It provides an escape from my often sordid reality, somewhere that eventually always has a...

    What Kind Of Person Hates Fantasy?

    Obviously, I love Fantasy. I love books and reading in general, but Fantasy books hold a special place in my heart. I'm also a real geek. When I'm into a fandom, I'm really into it. Cosplaying-And-Crafting-And-Knowing-All-The-Quotes kind of into it. And I'm not ashamed of that...

    My First Fantasy.

    The first fantasy series that really remember was the Narnia series. I remember that the richness of the words made the world and characters pop out at me and seem so real and life like. So much so that even if I wasn't reading them I could imagine them. It is one of the few...

    Me Too

    I love to read sci-fi when it's authors like Ursla Laguine or even modern writers like janet McNaughten. They are placed an entirely different but a good bit of it is actually plausible if you take away the hyperbole and look at the basics. LIke George Orwell's 1980 or McNaughten...

    Adore Them

    Fantasy and science fiction have been my escapes from the world for a long time. I have discovered recently a couple of fantastic books lately, including The Warded Man by Peter V Brett, the Riyria Revelations by Micheal Sullivan, and everything by Brandon Sanderson! :)
