Marc Aplin is probably not what you would consider your 'conventional fantasy fan'. Having held British titles in Mixed Martial Arts, he has won fights both by submission and knockout within a cage.

Fighting on an almost monthly basis in Thailand and then bi-monthly basis when he returned to the UK, the abuse on his body tallied up. In 2010 he retired from the sport with a number of minor injuries and some well earned cauliflower ears.

Bored, and with little to do now he was unable to train or fight, he picked up a fantasy novel that he'd been given during his travels and was blown away. Those hours he used to spend training were quickly replaced with hours of reading, writing and generally being a geek.

C. Sharp Hello, good sir!
Just wanted to say, I love Fantasy Faction here and on twitter -- Thank you and please keep it up.

You've got a long list of fine books ahead of you, but if you ever find yourself looking to get in touch with your inner 15-year-old girl, give THE ELEMENTALISTS by C. Sharp a go. It's a contemporary that gets more and more fantastical as it goes, but the coming sequels are all-in.

Thanks for doing what you do.
