Raymond Hancock, a writer of fiction and poetry, was born in 1972, in Yakima Washington. He has written many poems, a screenplay, and aspires to many novels, Necroman being his first.
Besides dozens of poems, Raymond’s first work was a screenplay called, Into The Darkness, written in 1995. Quickly he turned his efforts from the film industry, feeling that he was not ready for the arena that movies offered. Novels, as Raymond saw it, have more freedom and substance. He also believes they are a better place for an author to become established.
In recent years Raymond was married and now has a beautiful family. He believes family and faith is the center of his life. Raymond has worked hard to cultivate his skills as a writer, starting at the young age of ten years old.
Raymond looks at his writing as largely unconventional. He desires to create stories that take a different angle on traditional plots. Raymond wants his work to glorify God. He wants the reader’s imagination to be cranked all the way up, and at the same time expose them to biblical principles.

An interesting tale, written very well. Mark has excellent prose in his stories well worth taking a look at more of them.

As the story of killer robots goes I want more detail and something to relate to. Planet of Doom is up against a cadre of other killer AI stories and thus it must draw it's own niche. I would like to know more about DaQuan's past and also more about the people of Akanon. How is the air different on Akanon? What does the sky look like? What other strange and fantastic flora & fauna exists to fuel my imagination? Perhaps these and other elements are presented in other stories in this series?
