This is where I get the chance to explain myself. Listen very carefully because you can’t hear the written word. If you could, it would sound like keyboard clicks, with the ghostly echoes of typewriter strokes haunted by the soft whisper of pen or pencil intimately caressing the page.

I am a writer.

What I do with that occupation is hopefully captivate your attention for a few brief moments, take you on treks into gritty futures and far-flung fantasy. I write the books I’d like to read, and hope that you might like to read them as well.

Hello Michael,

That's a very good question. It's very hard for writers to find a singular audience in this overcrowded market, and most of us aren't hardwired for promotion and marketing.

For me, it's a stubborn belief in the long game. I don't have a large readership yet, but I believe in my work and so have faith that if I continue publishing work, the audience will grow. Granted, that also comes with the grimmer reality that the audience may never come, so in the end it comes to really loving what I do.

I write because I love the process, I love the craft, I love the art of storytelling. Whether I sell thousands of copies or not, that love is the constant. Like most authors, I would love to write for a living, but that dream is tempered by the realization that life doesn't always work the way I want. But I write anyway, because I love it too much to give up.

Without that love, a lot of writers burn out in the disappointment of not achieving financial success. (less)

Looking at the odds, Blade Runner really shouldn’t have become such an iconic film. While visually dynamic, it features an almost entire cast of morally dubious, unsympathetic characters, including its protagonist. The only two characters who qualify as innocents in the film are Rachel and Sebastion, who both suffer greatly in spite of that fact. The world of Blade Runner is dark, hopeless, and...

“Swoopers write a story quickly, higgledy-piggledy, crinkum-crankum, any which way. Then they go over it again painstakingly, fixing everything that is just plain awful or doesn’t work. Bashers go one sentence at a time, getting it exactly right before they go on to the next one. When they’re done they’re done.”
Kurt Vonnegut

“There was protest...There were those who knew. Who saw what was coming. But their voices were mere whispers in a crowd of roaring discontent. The surrender of freedom came in subtle stages, not with an explosive arrival. After the wars, the fear, the terrorism…we slowly let fear goad us into thinking it was better if control were out of our hands and placed into those of people who would protect us. We turned a blind eye as our liberties were sacrificed at the alter of nationalism. It was easier that way.”
Bard Constantine, Silent Empire
