Hi all, I'm Jon_Anon. I'm a total comic and gaming geek so I'm always online on sites like Comic Vine, Giant Bomb and Yogcast and since I'm a huge fantasy fan I always said to my self it would be pretty cool if there was a site like them but specifically for Fantasy so i finally decided to google it and so I found this place. It's cool here so I think I might stay  :D

My favourite book series is Malazan Books of the Fallen, it just hit that sweet spot of a combination of everything I enjoy all rolled up in to one series. I'm going to start reading the Broken Empire series soon and I also might check out this Stormlight Archive everybody seems to be talking about  :)

Hi there. :)

I write fantasy, read fantasy, game fantasy and would probably move to some sort of fantasy land if it were possible. (Don't tell my kids.)

This looks like an awesome forum to sink into the subject with like-minded individuals and expand me "to read" list like mad.

My captcha is a dirty word.   :o

I'm shit at introducing myself, so I'll just say Hi!

AJ Smith, fantasy author of The Long War, owner of 24 goblins (one too many).

I've been mooching around this site for a while. Very entertaining. Though, in the name of shameless self-promotion, I felt I should post something.

The Black Guard - out in August 2013
The Dark Blood - out in July (I think) 2014

Hello everyone!

I've done a general greetings post but then I spotted this too. Lovely to see so many fantasyophiles in one place.

I'm Nathan, writer, narrative designer and general story lover in a variety of fields. And now I will be writing articles here! I can't wait to start chatting with you all some more!

Hope all is well for you all!

Nathan!

Hi all, I'm Misa Buckley and I'm a fan of both fantasy and science fiction. I'm also an author, though my output has mostly been in the SF genre, with a little historical fantasy thrown in for good measure.

Hi All, I'm Pastey (real name Steve) and I'm not stalking Misa, even though we seem to keep bumping into each other   ;D

As my tagline says, I'm the Digital Lead at the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (www.h2g2.com) where I seem to spend a few hours a day trying to make sure it stays up and running, as well as rebuilding it from scratch. I used to be a professional web developer from the days of dial-up until recently, but there's only so much you can put up with.

I'm always an author, spread across several genres although I mostly seem to write what I term as Surreal Fantasy, but others have called Urban Fantasy. A genre I'd never even heard of until someone reviewed Endangered Creatures.

If left to my own devices online I tend to rant too much about computers, writing and beer.

That should have read "I'm also an author" but I think my barely awake mind took over and typed a more apt sentence.  :D

Hi, I'm new.
Im a lover of all things fantasy and a huge fantasy geek. I'm also a writer who's working on his first fantasy novel and who has the distinct pleasure of being one of the two? new contributors to F-F. Kind of new to the whole forum thing, so go easy on me.   :)

Hi, I'm Teeny (Chrissie).

I got here through twitter. Recently my 'to-read' list has expanded to be longer than the 'read' list, so I thought rather than curb my obsession I should join a forum to talk about it even more! (everyone needs an outlet)

Hi all. My name is cris pasqueralle and I am a new author of YA fantasy. My novel, Destiny Revealed, book one in a planned trilogy. I say planned because sometimes these things take on a life of their own and it could be quinology.  Thanks for letting me join.
