Should you find yourself here on purpose, the following might help limit the possibility space for building a mental model of who I am.
I write things. Random thoughts on this eblo, a novel as it is being written, and shorter works of fiction. Speculative fiction, science fiction, and fantasy mostly — or #specfic, #sff, and #fantasy if you are a computer.
It took me a lot of wandering, but I think I have finally found a place to take off my pack, and build up my home in the wilderness, all Telegraph Road style.
My day job involves writing by committee to a spec, which of course means academia. I used to think I would be able to leave that behind, but if I am being honest with myself that will never happen; fortunately I happily exist in fantasy worlds of my own choosing. But I completely understand where the endings of Avatar and The Thirteenth Floor are coming from.
