|Technically, that's me.|
It's from an old English word that means "Now you know to be careful what you read."
Where was I? Oh, yeah:
I'm the one on the left. I'm not JUST a superhero, but also a writer, of many things and insofar as it matters to this blog, of (occasionally) science fiction and fantasy stuff.
Some of my sci-fi works include Eclipse:
which is about an astronaut named Claudius who may or may not have gone into space, may or may not have killed his entire crew, and may or may not now be drifting aimlessly while waiting for a rescue that may or may not never come.
Here is a sample from that book:
So it's maybe a little different than the stuff Isaac Asimov wrote. As for fantasy, the things I write are more of the speculative fiction variety, things like the After,
in which Saoirse dies in a plane crash (oh, um SPOILER ALERT!) and wakes up in Heaven-or-something-like-it, a place where everything is just the way you want it (unless what you want is not to be there). With the help of William Howard Taft, Saoirse tries to find a way through an increasingly confusing existence.
So: things like that. I'll be contributing here from time to time, posting bits of stories, reviews of stuff I read, thoughts on sci-fi/fantasy issues of importance, like whether or not Superman has autism or what kinds of ghosts are the best kinds of ghosts. (Does horror count as fantasy? I think so, maybe, so I'll probably do stuff like that.)
I'm also a publisher -- of my own stuff and others, so check out my page tab up there for details!
