Escaping reality by creating a fantasy world of my own.

My short stories tend to be dark, gruesome, and lean towards sci-fi rather than fantasy(examples: Failure, The Game).
My novels tend be fantastical and less dark, though they have their moments.
Some of the ideas in my writings are outlandish and outright silly(example: The Rescue), but I write to entertain, not to convey a message with deep meaning.

Give my works a try and you just might like them.

There are few writers that will ever accomplish what Terry Pratchett has. His Discworld series is full of wit, laughter and jabs at traditional fantasy tropes. He's one of the few writers who has written several books that had me laughing out loud.

In 1996 they released the Discworld adventure game(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discworl…). It was my first glimpse at the world and I fell in love instantly. Since then I have been reading his books as they came out and catching up with the already released ones. I've read many of them several times and they always had me smiling.

Rest in peace Sir Terry. You will be missed, but never forgotten, and your works will continue to bring smiles on readers faces for decades more.

"No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away."

-Terry Pratchett, "Reaper Man"

Glad to hear you liked it.

Just remember to be patient with writing and do plenty of it. Read plenty of books too. Lurk around the Literature portion of the forum here. There are some good threads there from time to time and people who know what they're talking about :)

Well, that's not nice. Probably something to do with how dA puts the DD's at the bottom of the page and the fact it's a PDF file. Sorry about the trouble, though not much i can do about it :(

Hopefully I'll post an entry as well, though the word limit might be an issue with my current idea. We'll see :)
