Fantasy is a place where I can let my imagination run wild, an escape of sorts.

9. If you could have dinner with one person alive or dead, real or fictional (not just authors) who would it be an why.
John Merrick... the elephant man. I think it would be amazing to speak with someone who truly knew what it was like to suffer yet had enough friends and resources to allow him to spend extravagant hours in introspection. I'd like to ask him what he thought of people as a whole.

Couldn't tell ya

8. Explain in a few paragraphs why you love the SF/F genres: I'm a person who gets disillusioned with the real wolrd very often and fantasy provides an escape from that. I like to read of heroism and upstanding morals. Of good triumphing over evil. It has an effect on me not dissimilar to music.

3. Favourite Movie of all time: Piano Teacher

4. Favourite Band of all time: Limkin Park

5. Your favourite fictional character of all time: Raistlin of Dragonlance, Nakor of the Serpentwar series, and Granny Weatherwax as well as Death's Grandaughter in Discworld.

6. Your favourite story that you yourself have written: Dysjunction.

7. Your favourite character that you yourself have created and why: Daniel Chong Wei Kong, a character whose world was torn apart, from his own conception, the people around him, and from Nature Herself as well as the Gods( including the Christian one, who made a brief appearance standing side by side with his wife ) when he accidentally stumbled upon his true, as well as the true nature of most "unique" individuals around him.

8. Explain in a few paragraphs why you love the SF/F genres:
Fantasy,
The door to possibilites,
Of worlds that might be,
Planes bordering reality.
Seen by ones so dreamy,
But barred by the majority,
Who desires rigidity.

The realms of science,
The future is the sign,
If one would dare,
To ascend the stairs so bare,
And not just stand and stare,
By changes to the stars there,
But ride the lofty air!!

9. If you could have dinner with one person alive or dead, real or fictional (not just authors) who would it be an why: Charles Darwin, because of his bravery to expound a theory he believed explained the nature of speciation and to directly challenge a hierarchy that actually solely believed in the theory of Christian creation. Also, the father of modern biology!!

10. The best moment in your life so far: Having a penguin piggy ride on me!!

11. What you still wish to achieve: To write a novel and to have it published and at least read by 100K people.

12. Are you male or female: Male

13. Music right now: None, can't stand listening to music while typing. In fact, can only listen to music when doing nothing else.

14. Age? 23

1. Favourite Single Book of all time:
The Tao of Pooh

2. Favourite Author of all time
George R.R. Martin definitely. He's telling the story I always wanted to hear.

3. Favourite Movie of all time
Toss-up between American Beauty and the Shawshank Redemption

4. Favourite Band of all time
NOFX, no other band has put out so many songs that are that good IMO

5. Favourite Fictional Character
Eddard Stark, the paragon of nobility

6. Your favourite story that you yourself have written
I'm extremely satisfied with the way the story for my Exalted game is panning out. Fortunately, so are my friends!

7. Your favourite character that you yourself have created and why
Ulf Greatclaw, a character in my Exalted game. He's lived for millenia, waiting for his best friend to be reincarnated (my friend's character Therin). Dirty, smelly, umkempt, loyal and ferocious. A good friend and a terrible enemy.

8. Explain in a few paragraphs why you love the SF/F genres
Just because of the morality I think, and the honour, which in modern times is often viewed with scorn. I learned morality from watching Start Wars before Kindergarden, and Tolkien drop-kicked the doors of my imagination wide open

9. If you could have dinner with one person alive or dead, real or fictional (not just authors) who would it be an why:
Genghis Khan. Just to experience the ultimate self-made man and witness his legendary magnetism. (this assumes that I can understand what the hell he's saying :D)

10. The best moment in your life so far
The day my friends brought Becky to see me...

11. What you still wish to achieve
Would like to have a relationship that last longer than two months, with someone who isn't afraid of being loved.

12. Are you male or female: Male

13. Music right now
Dropkick Murphy's. One of the only bands where I saw them live first, best live show EVER. I highly recommend that if you like rowdy drinkin raunchy rock with bagpipes and some real HEART that you guys download "Heroes of our Past", I think it will touch a chord with this crowd...

14. Age 20 (21 soon)
