Hi everyone! I'm new to the boards, though I've been lurking for a little while and following on Twitter. I come from New Zealand and I'm unashamedly a geek  ;D

In real life I'm a university student and writer. Fantasy and SF are my passion, no matter what form of media.

I'll see you guys around the forums.

Hello from Scotland!

I'm new to Fantasy Faction. I can't really remember how I got here, but it looks like a great community, so I thought I'd stop in and register.

I am an avid fantasy reader, but I also like crime, thrillers, mysteries, and other types of adventure and a smattering of romance. I'm also an urban fantasy / paranormal novel author.

I live in Scotland but was born in the US.... which means I can never remember which is the *proper* spelling of most words. =)

Great to be here!

Hello!

I'm Cheerwell, and I'm an ever-improving reader of mostly fantasy (With a little sci-fi thrown in for good measure, but not much). Currently working my way through a number of series, such as Modesitt's Imager Portfolio and Newton's Legends of the Red Sun, and that's on top of trying to get around to the bigger and more popular series such as Wheel of Time, The Riftwar Saga and A Song of Ice and Fire, none of which I've even started. Oh, and I'm in the UK.

:)

Hello! I discovered the forums through Twitter (which seems to be a common theme, here). I write epic fantasy, and have a short story collection and a novel coming out later this year. I am a Northwesterner by birth, but by the end of the summer I anticipate I'll be a Californian, where it doesn't rain so much!

Welcome aboard!

You know, they say that about California, but every time I go there, it seems to rain on me... I feel cheated.

Hi all, I'm James Barclay, author of The Raven novels, the Ascendants of Estorea duology (if there is such a word) and now working my way through my latest trilogy concerning the Elves of the Raven's world, books which take place well before the Raven novels in chronological terms.

I found these forums through FF's twitter account and I'll be in and out, posting occasionally. You'll find I never trumpet my own stuff because I feel that is tantamount to spam but I'm happy to respond to questions and criticism either within threads or by PM. My opinions on fantasy in general tend to be limited (in public at any rate) to the genre in general. I don't tend to criticise other authors (stones, glasshouses and all that...) but I'm right behind some of the brilliant fantasy out there at the moment from people like Pat Rothfuss, Scott Lynch, Joe A. I have so little time to read other works but am always open to recommendations. I'm also a great supporter of work that has been out there for a good long time - including Moorcock, Pratchett and my writing hero, Dave Gemmell whose passing still hurts given we was my mentor and good friend.

Looking forward to my stay here.

Hi.apologies but I have never read anything by you but recognise the name. Like your choice of favourite writers though, especially the modern ones.we certainly seem to be in a fantasy golden age right now.

Hi everyone, I'm Oli. I'm a long time Fantasy and SF fan (first read LOTR aged 8 in the 70s), but have only started to get seriously interested recently - partly because I'm halfway through writing a fantasy novel! I spend much of my time writing about music here http://oliverarditi.com, and have spent much of the last two decades pretending to be a musician. I'm starting a new music project called Leaf (http://projectleaf.tumblr.com/), and you can also find me on Twitter (http://twitter.com/oli_the_bass) and Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/oliverarditi). I blow my own trumpet all the time, in order to compensate for my inadequacies, but I'm basically tolerable if humoured. I respond well to cookies, but badly to alcohol, and I prefer herring to mackerel.

Hi, I'm Marc, and I've already forgotten how I found this group, although I suspect Twitter had something to do with it. I started writing fantasy, but I tend to wander. My latest novel doesn't really have a genre so I invented one: Gothic SF. It's got werewolves, curses, and a haunted lunar colony.

Welcome Marc!  Sounds like a really cool story you've got going. :)  Don't think I've ever read a story with werewolves and a lunar colony. :D

Hello. From U.S, just found this site on Twitter.  :)

My name is Tabitha, and I both write/read urban fantasy for YA age. My favorite series would have to be Rachel Caine's "Morganville Vampires", because she juggles about 1,000 plots every book and manages to keep the characters and voice in control.

If you know some more psychological stuff/monster stuff for urban fantasy YA or even adult, be sure to let me know first! :) I can use all the reading material I can get.
