Wayne Santos has been an ad copywriter, a TV scriptwriter, a magazine contributor, an editor, and a freelance writer for too many things on the Internet to count. He grew up in Alberta, lived in Singapore, and settled down in Ontario with his wife and an ongoing rotation of two household cats. He is a multi-disciplinary geek with a double major in science-fiction and fantasy, specializations in novels, comics, anime, TV and film, and a minor in video games. Under no circumstances should he be approached to discuss 80s pop culture unless you are fully aware of the toll this will expend on your remaining lifespan.

Video Game Review: Nier Replicant

This one of the bigger games of the year for me, and it was everything I’d hoped it would be. Flawed, sure, but still an amazing experience.

Nier: Replicant, or its full name, Nier: Replicant ver.1.22474487139 is a remaster of a game that originally came out in 2020, during the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 era. It’s the work of a Japanese game developer by the name of Yoko Taro who now has a reputation f

The Difficult Loves of Maria Makiling by Wayne Santos
"This. Is. Glorious.

I'd never really considered what the love life of a mountain goddess from the Philippines would be like. Don't know if this particular version is 100% accurate, but it is a blast to read and I want more!"

Pollen From A Future Harvest is a novella that takes place in Künsken's "Quantum Evolution" universe. It's a self-contained story, so reading the other novels isn't required, but for those that have at least read the second novel, The Quantum Garden, ...more

"Wayne Santos continues his patented fusion of magic and lore with modern gonzo fun in this truly engaging novella. It's a wonderful story, and if there's anything to critique it's that there isn't enough of it."
The Difficult Loves of Maria Makiling by Wayne Santos
"I loved reading this book. I don't normally read books about loves, difficult or otherwise, so I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked it up. My previous experiences didn't matter as this story is quite unique, and it was so much fun to read! The " Read more of this review »

The Chimera Code by Wayne Santos
"Ahhh new favorite alert! The Chimera Code by Wayne Santos is one I hadn’t heard almost anything about beyond the tantalizing premise: near future cyberpunk with magic. This book was everything I wanted it to be, the action was high-stakes and nonstop" Read more of this review »

Jade City by Fonda Lee

Jade City to me feels a lot like what would happen if the staff from Sega's Yakuza gangster series of video games got a chance to write a story with their characters leveled up for Matrix-style fights. This is a tale of Asian organized crime in a fic ...more
