Alex Stargazer is an author of dark, fantastical tales that snare you in with epic world-building—and keep you reading with funny anecdotes and beautiful love stories. He currently hails from rainy Scotland, but he can be found all over Europe.

When not establishing the finer points of magecraft or the peculiarities of dragons, Alex is working hard on getting a Master’s degree in boring topics like economics. In his spare time, Alex enjoys exploring the wilderness of Scotland—though Austria, Italy and the Nordic countries fascinate him most. If he really needs to blow off some steam, Alex will

Somedays, I don't feel like writing or really doing much of anything. Usually I take it easy; but sometimes, I find that taking the impetus to do something makes me a lot of happier.(less)

I've thought about this. I could cite flexibility, the potential to become rich and famous, or the fact that I really like it.

But really, I don't do this out of sheer dreams of grandeur or success; I do it because it allows me to bring my imagination to life. And my imagination is so often greater than what is real...(less)

A Brief Essay Regarding Epic Fantasy

Hello readers!

Today I am sharing a brief essay (or perhaps “musing” is a more accurate description) regarding some trends I’ve observed in the epic fantasy genre over the past couple of years. Although Fallen Love is an urban fantasy novel, my first novel, the Necromancer, was definitely in this genre. It’s still my all-time favourite genre, as both reader and writer, and one I care very deeply about.

Alex Stargazer is 75% done with Becoming Grim: We’re getting to see some plot now! Yay. I would still really like to know more about Gaige by this point—I think too many words were used to describe Zeke and Piper doing inane teen couple stuff.

Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
"
Finished this in one night. This is positively the epitome of erotic, and not for the faint of heart. The most sensual romance I think you can possibly get your hands on--full of BDSM elements.

What really surprised me was how deep this was--it's..." Read more of this review »

“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

“For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

“I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that I don't know the answer”
Douglas Adams

“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt
