About

I'm glad I found this site (don't know how I missed it so long). I read all sorts of things, so I am looking forward to diving into MANY of these stories...

I also write. I recently had my second novel published, but most of my many years of writing have been in the non-fiction world. I have written a couple thousand (at least!) articles and features for newspapers, travel magazines, newsletters and even several comic books and a graphic novel.

FantasyReaders.com is a Website I set up in 2002:  http://www.FantasyReaders.com

Everything on the site is free: fantasy, sci-fi and horror stories, and even illustrated and interactive game books!
