Patrick Lauser


I am a lover of God, and of all lovers of God.

The central themes and purposes of my life are Strange Fantasy and Right Culture.

I grew up in America, Washington state, Pacific Northwest, which seems to be connected with many authors of strange books, such as Peretti, Overstreet, and the authors of Myst. There is a likeness between these works, an unconscious family resemblance you might say.

Then we lived in Texas for about a year; I won't soon forget the background of cicada calls, the nightly thunderstorms, or drinking Bengal Spice tea while reading Watership Down. Since then we've lived in Ireland, the land of artists and poets and their own ancient language.

One of my main inspirations has been my older brother, who would passionately describe to the rest of us the visions of his powerful and fiery imagination.

Great authors that have inspired me are Tolkien, George MacDonald, Richard Adams, and especially Charles Williams. Through them and many other masters I am learning to glorify my Creator as the rest of his creation does: through being glorious.

Your servant,
