Hey all! Have a good stay, and try not to burn the place down.
Because that's your responsibility?

Hi, I'm new.

My name is James Troughton. I try to write speculative fiction of all varieties - mostly focusing on fantasy - and am a huge fan of China Mieville and John Wyndham. Particular favourites would be Iron Council, The Scar, The Kraken Wakes, and The Trouble with Lichen.

I've self published a couple of short stories on Kindle. Unbelievably, these have not yet made me a global writing star.

This place seems nice. :)

Hello!

My names is Myles. I'm a teenage writer who loves fiction, specifically fantasy. My favorite authors are Christopher Paolini, George R. R. Martin, J. K. Rowling, and, of course, J. R. R. Tolkien. Out of these four, Paolini is probably my biggest hero. I could read his writing over and over again and never get tired of it. I'm currently working on a novel called Blood of Kings, the prologue to which I posted in the Writer's Corner. The first draft is not yet finished because I started it during NaNoWriMo, but I should have the bulk of it finished by May 2015. This website seems really really cool and I love all the helpful guides to stuff in general. :P

Greetings! I'm Matt, 35 and I come from a far off land where trees grow downwards and people are actually hats. Or perhaps not. Anyhoo, hello!

I have to admit that as a newbie I feel that I have to rein back on the posting :P Dunno why though. Something about being new and I feel I'm supposed to sit quietly in a corner and learn before speaking or whatever. That and I dont wanna spam too much too soon :P

Hehe. Not in the traditional "buy your stocks and viagra here" -kinda way, but there are certainly a lot of book related things I'd like to discuss and making threads for all of it might fill up the forum :P

But yeah, I'll definitely be posting some stuff in the near future!

Hi! I'm bookish_fantasy.  :D

Of course, I adore all things fantasy, but a few things that stand out in my mind are Lord of the Rings, Narnia and Harry Potter. Game of Thrones and I have a bit of love/hate relationship. Yes, I'm that big of a nerd - love/hate relationships with books.  :P

Nice to meet you all!  :)

Oh, I've had love/hate relationships with books. Nice to see a bit of passion about it.
I will expand your TBR pile.

We have to be the most-unfriendliest bunch ever collected on one forum in the history of the internet. (Not true)
Nobody gets along, and we when we disagree we say mean-spirited things to be other (Mostly not true)
The worst is @Raptori, though I only say this because writing @Doctor Chill won't actually put his name as a reference because he put a space into his name. If it did work, he'd be the worst. (Hmmm, trying to figure out how true any of that is  ;D )
Oh, wait, this is supposed to be a welcoming response!  ;)

And, also, yay for another 50-plusser. There can't be enough of us.

Welcome! Herein you will find a friendly place to discuss books, movies, etc. (And this is completely true. Except for @Gariath8))

Just to clarify, @Jmacyk meant that I'm the worst at being unfriendly
