Hello to all!
« on: April 19, 2017, 09:57:53 PM »
My name is Allan Batchelder, and I've been lurking for a few years, but only just gotten 'round to signing up. I'm an avid reader and writer of fantasy, but I enjoy other genres as well, particularly horror.

Hi :)
I'm an angel. I kill firstborns while their mamas watch. I turn cities into salt. I even, when I feel like it, rip the souls from little girls, and from now till kingdom come, the only thing you can count on, in your existence, is never understanding why.

Hi Allan, welcome. Where are you? What do you do? Can I drive? Are we there yet?  ;D

Where am I from? I've often wondered, but I tell most people Seattle. What can I do? Well, that's the question, isn't it? Can you drive? Please do. As long as I can drink.
