You write WHAT!?

It only seems natural to follow up my introduction post with a post about the genre I specialize in. Natural because I realized (upon re-reading) that from the information given there it seems I am a "serious" writer. I assure you this is not the case with me.

I write science-fiction almost exclusively. Now, before the chucking of tomatoes starts I will assure you that I am well aware of the shortcomings of attempting to be an author for this particular genre. Yes, it is a genre more known for it's commercialism (which I see nothing wrong with by the way) than any true blue great works of art (at least in the opinion of most critics). But still... it is the genre that has always spoken to my heart. I grew up watching Alien and Neon Genesis Evangelion and well, the age of computers taking over (remember the turn of the year 2000? I was 12 at the time) oh and there was a little thing called Matrix that might have been an influence on me. Not only this but I just always seemed to gravitate toward science fiction in general. Star Wars was my favorite movie as a child and I can no longer count on my fingers how many times I have read 1984 and Brave New World.

The stories that speak to me are always those that have to do with Science fiction so... Yes, I know that it's not the most hmm... I guess you could say it's not the most well viewed genre (in fact it must fall somewhere along with writing horror) but it's the genre that speaks to me and I love it. Sure, I am not claiming to be Huxley, Kippling, Verne or anything but I do hope that what I write could mean something to someone as those gentlemen meant to me.
