New Introduction
« on: August 11, 2018, 01:17:30 PM »
Hello everyone.

I used to frequent this forum a loooong time (about six years?) ago and I remember it being a nice, chill place to talk about fantasy and sci-fi so I figured I re-register again.

As is the common theme (funnily enough) I like reading fantasy and sci-fi with some of my favourite books being the Gormenghast trilogy, the Bas-Lag books by China Mieville and Johnathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Suzanne Clarke.

For what I enjoy in the medium, I tend to have a preference for fantasy that moves away from the more traditional themes to create weirder, 'other' worlds. (Which is probably why China Mieville rates as a favoured author).

I also enjoy playing video games, to the detriment of all my other hobbies (such as writing).

Looking forward to meeting everyone else and swapping recommendations.

Cheers!

Welcome (back) @Grey!

You can fit right in, then - and feel free to create a thread asking for recommendations :)

Also you can leave the video games for a while and write a short story about 'Games' for our current monthly writing contest :D
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!
