'Tis a weird, wyrde, world in that wacky, wondrous brain. An aspiring writer with a strange sense of humor. Gravitates to erotica and things you don't want to tell your friends about. Beware of lesbian tentacle monsters, horny spiders, and futanari. Weird is as the words wyrde writes.
A writer since forever, only recently taking it vaguely seriously. Born british in a 'murican body. Loves tea cold and despises all coffee except what comes from a particular plantation. Known for being evil and going way too far for a joke.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Anything by Roger Zelazny. I don't think there's a single book by Zelazny I didn't love. The Amber series also gave birth to one of my favorite RPGs. _The Dragon Never Sleeps_ by Glen Cook. Cook introduces a wonderful, rich universe with an amazing amount of diversity. It's packed with great action and adventure. I've even used it as a setting for a tabletop rpg campaign. _On Basilisk Station_ by David Weber. The first of the Honorverse books and one of my personal favorites. It's also great seeing how Weber evolves the universe and the characters. _Mission of Gravity_ by Hal Clement sparks the imagination with hard science. It's amazing to experience the world he creates. _Jhereg_ by Steven Brust is the start of his Taltos series. Like many of my other favorites, it introduces an amazing world to experience.
Describe your desk
My desk is a makeshift affair, a collaboration of surfaces. There's this metal hutch thing my monitor and keyboard sit on. A milk crate to the left that holds such important items as my intous2 tablet, some pens, and keeps various small electronics off the floor. To the right is a drafting table, relaxed flat, with the laptop and a secondary monitor. It's a geeky looking affair cluttered with mice, tablets, cat5, and the occasional purring cat. An old t-shirt covers the wires between my keyboard and monitor as a deterrent to keep my most aggressive kitten from hauling cords all over the place. It is not a tidy workspace.
