Hi Yopla, as Jmack says, Dead, But Dreaming (although I once got a random email that asked me why I was dead but drumming that still amuses me). It's a reference to Fields of The Nephilim who are in turn referencing H.P. Lovecraft. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQmPEUJOhTQ So Goth, much woe.) It should really be RJ Barker as I'm, apparently, a professional author now, but I must have signed up a long time ago and there doesn't appear to be a way to change it.

I would never steal Anna's lunch, she may pull my hair. I don't generally even eat lunch to be honest so it wasn't really that much of a threat.  Duped again.

You absolute diamond. Also, this little thread has just become a little bit confusing to anyone who's not read it.  A little joy to savour.

Aaaaaah. Yes, I can see it now, thanks.

Meh. After several songs, I'm pretty sure I don't like the singer's voice. Too bad, the instruments are quite interesting.
Bouh.

Hi, all. My name is Artur and I am from Poland. I love fantasy, especially JRR Tolkien's, T. Pratchett's and A. Sapkowski's novels. I like play board and role playing fantasy games as well. I also write a bit. This forum looks really interesting and I hope it will be quite cool to discuss with you. Cheers!

Hello @Ar, welcome to the forum. Always good to have another Pratchett fan around, there are plenty of us here. ;D

Hello, I am new here as well. I'm a fan of Robert E Howard, particularly Solomon Kane. I have written a poetry fantasy book myself that I plan on publishing soon as well.

Hey hey, @blakewsherwin! Hope you have a fantastic time around these parts. Poetry fantasy sounds awesome! Need more of that, I'd say.

He hasn't been around much recently, but @Yora is a big time Howard fan.
I agree with Doc -- fantasy poetry novel sounds cool!
