I’m just a regular guy who takes too much pleasure in science fiction and fantasy. I’ve taught myself to read a year before starting school, and by the time I was in fourth grade I’ve graduated from cowboys and Indians to historical fiction. My favorite subject there was the Mediterranean in ancient times: Egypt, Greece, and such.
I came into contact with science fiction fairly late, when I was 16 and picked up Asimov’s Foundation series. Since then I was hooked and binge-read everything I could find. Later, I branched into PC games, movies and most recently audiobooks when I can’t hold a book. Over the years, I’ve written for a number of now defunct Web sites, primarily reviewing PC games, but also doing a fair share of book and movie reviews. Occasionally, I got published in a print medium. My sci-fi writing all sits in a drawer, as I don’t think it’s ready to be sent to magazines yet.
With this blog, I’m not trying to offer authoritative reviews anymore. As I matured, I calmed down. I no longer feel qualified to pronounce my opinion as an objective truth. Instead, I just want to share what I personally think about works in a genre I feel passionate about. Take my writing as you will, but I hope you’ll find at least some of it interesting or worth thinking about.
