    Hi All!

    I am a big sci-fi fan and also horror to some extent. I say to some extent because 90 percent of my reading is about vampires but I like stuff like the Anita Blake series or Anne Rice and I really don't find them horrifying. I also like fantasy ( I just spent Saturday watching the LOTR trilogy), action/sci-fi movies,video games and comic books.

    My other interests include anime, traveling ( I lived in Japan for 2 years), new age and role playing games. Right now of course I'm playing Vampire the Masquerade: The Victorian Era (I identify with the Toreador clan so much it should be a crime!) and Star Wars (the D6 version).

    As for my day job, I am a proofreader expanding into science fiction and horror novels. So I'm here hoping to network with people who need their stories/novels proofread so I can build up some experience on my resume.

    Feel free to contact me about anything! Especially if it's about vampires :D

    Hello, my name is Hartman Keeley and I have been searching for an active and particularly large writing forum for some time. I obviously have a passion for writing that is equal with my great passion for the cosmos (although I haven't given Science Fiction stories a go as of yet).

    I am currently working on a novel entitled, "Stealing America". I am trying to finish the third chapter but have not worked on it in sometime, as I have been busy revamping the first two chapters. Some readers have said they're fine [Chapters 1-2] but honestly I find them revolting. They will need much more work.

    Anyway, I am sixteen years old and a sophomore at my high school. I can see that I will enjoy myself and the company of other fellow writers here at the Writer's Forum. Thank you for your time.

    new guy here too.... joined after seeing the link on James Barclay's website... not sure how much I will come in here but hey - it will be a good place for me to look for inspiration on what to read next - and maybe risk posting a story if I ever get down to taking it out of my brain.....

    Well hello

    Hi

    I just stumbled across this site and thought I'd join up as I have been an avid SFF reader since childhood, thought mostly F I must admit :)

    My fave authors include, Hobb, Martin, Feist, Kerr, Donaldson, Jones to name a few and I'm currently working my way through Erikson, Bakker, Lynch and Abercrombie.

    I look forwarad to seeing what everyone else is into, just don;t reccommend anything to me till I reduce my To Be Read pile somewhat :)

    Errrmm, Ummm...Knock - Knock...Can I come in?

    Well, here I am - I've been a SciFi fan almost since I learned to read and I only just found this place by accident! Never occurred to me to look for others like me....guess I must be getting old huh?

    Anyroadup, as I'm currently on a Life Quest travelling thru Europe in my HealMobile I dunno how often I'll be able to log in, so I should say a Very Warm Hello to y'all now.

    Perhaps later I'll discuss some of my likes and dislikes, but for now I've just posted a couple of poems to kick-start my contributions to this excellent site. If anyone ever reads 'em p'raps I'll get some feedback (which would be nice) ;)

    I look forward to meeting some of you in the discussion forums.

    Hi everyone.

    I've been a bit of a long-time lurker on these boards, but finally decided to sign up. My name is Seth, I'm from Australia, and fantasy is my preference, though I do love SF as well. Not so much into horror, but definitely love weird, surreal, and strange writing. Currently keeping myself occupied by finishing an English Honours degree.

    Another newbie.

    Hello everyone! I just signed up today and thought it would be best to introduce myself. My name is Christopher and I'm currently living in Tennessee. I really enjoy high fantasy but I've been known to read a Sci-Fi novel from time to time. Writing short stories will hopefully be a hobby that can carry me through the years as I've given up nightclubs and drinking in favor of more constructive pastimes. Look for me to be posting sometime soon but don't get your hopes up. =)

    Greetings humanoids.

    I've actually been a member for quite a while, but its been months since I posted and I stuck to the writing forum only.

    I'm a huge sci-fi fan and I love military sci-fi and "classic" sci-fi. Thus big Heinlein reader. Also a reformed 40ker.

    I'm US military, EOD. But before that I waqnted to be a comicbook artist. So, yeah, a life contradictions.

    Greetings

    Hello everyone!
    As a new user I would like to introduce myself:) I come from Poland so English is not my first language. I hope that everyone will forgive me all mistakes that may occur.
    Apart from reading books I take photos and learn languages.
    My favourite writers are Tolkien, Gaiman, Pratchett, Sapkowski, Lem and a few others.

    Hi everybody!

    My name is MattC, I am here because I love reading and writing Fantasy/Horror. I've been lurking here for months but have now decided to finally join, half because the only writing forum I used to hang out on is dying. I don't get the impression that the same will happen to this site.;)

    Noobish question: How do you submit a short story? I completed one recently that is in the fantasy/horror genre. One day I would like to submit it to a publisher, so I need feedback etc.

    Hullo!

    I'm Charlie and after lurking around the fantasy section of this forum for the last week I've decided to join. I've been reading fantasy as my preferred genre for as long as I've been serious about reading. I'm midway through a BA in english lit and art history but I've been on a semester long break to clear my head a bit. Basically the only thing I've done during this break is read fantasy, hahaha. It's been great! Hopefully I'll be able to contribute some relatively worthwhile comments now and then. We'll see :)

    At the moment I'm 3/4 of the way through Greg Keye's Kingdoms of Thorn and Bone and I'm loving it! Anyone else here a Keyes fan?

    Rina says g'day!

    Hi my name is Karina:p , although my mates call me 'Rina': I live on the gold coast- have the following pets: one cat, one dog, one boyfriend......
    My main reason for joinning up is so that i have a wider resource pool of intelligent people to discuss topics that are a little 'outside the square'. My main topics of interest are exopolitics, alien/ government conspiracy, hidden/ alternative histories, astro - theology. I am also happy to say that sffworld has accepted and posted some of my artworks ( which are ALL original works ) which are based around the above mentioned topics- look for these in the art gallery- specially "Dad I crashed the ufo"2008.
    Hope to chat to ya all real soon!!
    :D:D

    Hello all!
    I've been poking around this site for quite a while and figured I'd go ahead and join! I'm a short story writer, dealing with science fiction, fantasy, and horror (wait, this is a romance site?!). I've got a few publications under my belt now and have just recently opened up my first author site :) My real love is writing my novels, and I'm still in the process of hunting down an agent for them.


    Howdy!
