@hg47 - Writer. Reader. Reviewer.

If you like science fiction, DAUGHTER MOON is the best thing I've ever written, or ever will write. I know my limits. It's not as good as THE MOTE IN GOD'S EYE, or DUNE, or even the flawed masterpiece STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND. Sucks to be me. I rank it 4th on the Ultimate Sci-Fi Scale. (They say that novelists are even more egotistical than Hollywood Directors.)

If you like romance, you may enjoy A WALK IN THE RAIN. I will always be more than a little in love with Courtney in that novel. This is a mainstream, very adult, epic length romance. At one point, the heroine was raped; I was crying while writing that scene, spitting tears all over my monitor and keyboard. Don't tell anyone.

I was briefly infamous in the mid Nineties, when my publisher Longstreet Press sent out 150 blue bras to reviewers for the launch of my experimental novel BLUES DELUXE, which essentially defined me as a boob.

I use my Twitter handle for my writer's name now. Two years ago I momentarily went viral, when my #TwitterArt sequence of planes crashing into the Twin Towers got more than 10,000 ReTweets in a 24 hour period. No clue how that happened. Wish I did.

I pay the bills working in plastics extrusion. I run the graveyard shift where I work, although with this Super Recession things are so slow that it's turning into a part-time gig.

Look at the free samples for my novels; you will find out real quick if my style of writing works for you. I apologize for my incompetent Sales Pitch Pages.

  • The Weeping Empress on Nov. 18, 2012

    I'm a new Sadie S. Forsythe fan. Empress is not my preferred type of reading, but Sadie won me over completely with her superb narrative drive. She is a GrandMaster--excuse me, GrandMistress--at narration. This book should be on bestseller lists, if there is any justice in "this world." Now my method of dealing with time travel is to go all High Tech, get into Time Renormalizing Theory and Closed Timelike Curves and then cop-out by saying that superior aliens developed the technology which is beyond our poor human brains to understand anyway. I almost like Sadie's way better; she just dumps the time traveler into a new time: "Deal with it, girl!" I got sucked into the story in the first few pages, and quickly became caught up in heroine Chiyo's new life. She has to fight to survive, from hour one. She chooses her allies on the enemy of my enemy theory. The only structural flaw in this awesome story that I could see was the lack of flying weapons, like spears and arrows; but it didn't dent my enjoyment, just made me wonder why there weren't any. Stop reading reviews! Read her free sample! If you don't buy it, I'll eat my digital bits: my 1s and 0s. @hg47
