|My SOULGEEK Self:||
Well now... former SF/gaming/comics bookstore owner and con geek (over 15 years in running 2-3 cons a year in the SF Bay Area), former (and maybe future) SCAer, non-fiction author, network/IT geek manager. Moved to Colorado Springs for work after the dotcom crash. Like almost everyone, would like to be a professional writer, but way too distracted by Real Life (tm) and my son to actually follow through.
|The SoulGeek I'm Looking For:||
Pretty, witty, and occasionally twitty. I prefer not to start laundry-listing as such, as I'd rather be pleasantly surprised. I suspect that there are lots of potential partners who would check every box and still not appeal, and visa versa. Likewise, there might be the perfect woman for me out there in, oh say, furrydom that I'd never meet because she didn't meet my laundry list. I prefer to accept each person on their own terms.
|Ideally, if I could be any character from the worlds of Sc-Fi, Horror & Fantasy I would be:||
|But I'm probably more like:||
|In a Nutshell|

|My Other Car is:||Steam Powered|
|Why I love Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy, Animation, etc...||
Science Fiction - It is the art of the possible, where one can get to the true essence of character or conflict because its not weighed down by contemporary circumstance.
Horror - Werewolves. Oh, and Lovecraftia
Fantasy - I find fantasy to be relaxing escapism at its best, and pulp adventure at its worst. My first fantasy "book" was the Lancer books of Robert E Howard's Conan.
Animation - I grew up with it, I suppose; its a medium virtually unrestrained by the cost of "special effects"; you can do anything!
Anime - I grew up with it, I suppose; its a medium virtually unrestrained by the cost of "special effects"; you can do anything! I love the lack of restraint that the Japanese have, as contrasted to their American counterparts.
Comic Books - They grabbed me in my foolish youth, and captured my spirit!
|Some of my SCI-FI Favorites include:||
Oh bloody hell... just when I thought I was safe from the laundry lists... *snerk* Trek, B5, Firefly. Heinlein and Haldeman, Tiptree and Turtledove, Asimov and Anderson (Poul). Effinger and Ellison. Silverberg and Smith (E.E.).
|Some of my FANTASY favorites include:||
Randall Garrett, The "Garrett, PI" series by Glen Cook, Patricia Briggs, Tolkien, Fritz Lieber. Many, many others.
|Some of my HORROR favorites include:||
Big Trouble in Little China, Charles Grant, Van Helsing, old Hammer films. Some of the movies I like are only horror films in that they are so bad that they invoke a sense of fright and dread when people are made to watch them...
|Some of my ANIMATION-ANIME favorites include:||
Animation - The DCU animated universe (et al). Warner Bros. Bugs Bunny and associated characters, up to and including Animaniacs and Tiny Toons. Darkwing Duck. Disney and Pixar. The Ultinmate Avengers and the old Filmation Spider-Man!
Anime - Bubble Gum Crisis and AD Police (originals and ADV versions), City Hunter, Sanctuary. Rumiko Takahashi's comedies. Among others far too numerous to mention.
|Some of my COMIC BOOK/MANGA/WEBCOMIC favorites include:||
Webcomics - Weregeek, PVP, Least I Can Do, Girl Genius.
Comic Books - Captain America, pre-BENDIS! Avengers, Nova, Nightwing, Batman/Wayne, Captain Mar-Vell. Fables. Girl Genius. Ms. Tree. I wish there were more non-spandex comics available.
Manga - Crying Freeman. Anything by Rumiko Takahashi.

Video Games - EQ, SWG, CoH/CoV, WoW
Role Playing Games - AD&D 2nd Ed., Runequest, Traveler, Gamma World, GURPS
|Some of my FILM, TV etc... SCORING favorites include:||
Into The Woods, Sweeny Todd, Big Trouble In Little China, the Bond themes.
|Some of my SIGNING/AUTOGRAPH EVENT favorites include:||
