Does the World Need Another Speculative Fiction Writer’s Website?

No, probably not. At least, not one of the thousands of standard science fiction and fantasy websites that drip with big blocks of unedited prose about molting vampire cyborgs…in HTML. Come on, who does this shit? Why not include a little torch .gif circa 1998?

Frankly, any writer who expects a reader to read more than a couple pages of that on a computer screen is a freaking sadist.

Luckily for you, I’m not into inflicting pain on anyone besides myself.

Once this site is up and running, I hope to have plenty of content for you: text in a variety of formats (.pdf, Kindle, etc) as well as audio recordings. In fact, I’m pretty excited to do the podcasts.

Most of this will be free for you to download and enjoy on your own time.

However, I’ll soon have a baby to feed and I’m not ashamed to admit that I want to earn some money for my work.

In order to do this, I’ll log your IP address, visit your house, and …no, no, no. None of that.  I will, however make available some longer works and collections in both digital and dead-tree editions.

If enough people purchase what I’m selling, I’ll be able to afford to keep writing.

And so I throw my hat.
