    Hi from Sydney, Australia

    Howdy folks! Dropping by to introduce myself. I'm a professional artist working mostly digital in the film/tv industry with the odd sf oil painting to keep me sane!

    I have painted matte paintings for The Fifth Element, Farscape the tv series, s1, among other projects. Currently painting concept art for The Wolverine film.

    Big reader of French sf graphic novels, currently reading Caliban's War, just finished the Maze Runner trilogy (of which I will be painting concepts for the upcoming MR film!).

    Favorite sf novels recently by Marianne de Pierres, Sentients of Orion series.

    Favorite all time sf novel.. The Zero Stone by Andre Norton for purely sentimental reasons, it was my first sf novel! :)

    Favorite sf artists: John Harris, Jim Burns, Chris Foss, Tim White, Peter Elson, Moebius, John Berkey..

    Anyway, that's me. Have a great day folks!

    Salutations to all the new members on SFF.com by the only french guy on this site :)

    (of course, if another french fan of SF is around us, he can prevent the community !)

    I haven't been here in a while. Writing and working all the time. I have been in a contest, and had a short story published. Now I am waiting the printers to finish with book 2, and I'm working on book 3. I have sold 2 books overseas. I know that sounds like nothing, but I have no money to advertise, and here's the bomb everyone loves..I'm self published. I'd like to say hi to everyone on here. No matter if they are e-published or done the traditional way...we all love to write or we wouldn't do it. Am I right? We can't all have money and connections. Good luck to all of those that truly love to write!

    Hello! I'm a huge science-fiction and fantasy nerd. My favorites are LOTR, WoW, Star Trek (especially DS9), Harry Potter, and Michael Crichton.

    I also have a book coming out next summer, the first in The Reagent Universe series. Here's a link to my blog: http://freshpublishing-house.co.uk/joncortez/

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing some great discussions and insights. This sight looks rather cool.

    Hi, my name is Mark and I'm an alcoho... wait, where am I again?

    Oh yeah, I'm a writer. That's probably worse than the other. I mean at least alcoholics are good at parties, right?

    Mostly writing Steampunk these days, working on a serial called Orphans of the Celestial Sea at the moment.

    Hi Everyone!

    I'm new here! Well, I joined ages ago and posted a short story but life (read: kids) saw to it that I didn't have time for much of that lately. I love sci fi and fantasy, mostly anything with a good story, though probably firefly, stargate, star trek, supernatural, LOTR, Game of Thrones and NK Jemisin in particular. I'm hoping to right a good story or two myself one day. Looking forward to seeing everyone around the forums, when life allows!

    Greetings and Salutations!

    Hope to meet new friends and learn about some more books to read. My name is Glen Bonnet Jr and I'm from Texas. Love SciFi & Fantasy. I usually gravitate to the hard-science stuff, but I still like a bit of soft-science or pure-fantasy. I'm all over the place with genres, authors, titles. I'm falling in love with eBooks and eReaders, but still can't shake that great feeling and smell of having a paper book in my hands. Have an older model KindleDX and used to have an original Kobo but it died a sad death (involved a car's tire and a crunch, not pretty, still mourning the loss) Just to give a sample of the books I just put back on the shelf or removed from my Kindle: Aliens vs Predator Hunter's Planet - David Bischoff, Starship Troopers - Robert A Heinlein, Star Trek Dreams of the Raven - Carmen Carter, The Martian Chronicles - Ray Bradbury, Atlas Shrugged - Ayn Rand, Dies The Fire - S M Stirling, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep - Philip K Dick, The Gods of Mars - Edgar Rice Burroughs, Jennifer Government - Max Barry, The Sea Is Full Of Stars - Jack L Chalker, Second Contact - Harry Turtledove, Eragon - Christopher Paolini... Wow! I need to cut back. Is there a 12-Step program for this? ;)
