As a little background, I've written a lot of stuff, but I have to say
that what I'm proudest of isn't what I've written, it's of the things that
I helped other people write or inspired other people to write.
Through my mistakes and fumblings with the eloquence that the freedom the
Net gives so well, I somehow triggered the birth of an entity that Carl
Rigney first thought to
call alt.what.monster.has.li.created.now; but, mercifully, when the
first newsgroup notifications went out, it was actually called
The fun of it, though, was the stories that came out. Joel Benford has
been kind and energetic enough to actually put together
a web page
about those stories. Also, a long, long time ago Kip Moore did the
immense job of editing together
the entire HUGE story
that was written
in the flow of the time. WARNING: it's about 800k of text, so I'd
recommend only downloading it if you want it all.
I am also very proud of another thing I never wrote, which is a razorwire
bit of parody of all things cyberpunk and especially me by one amazing
Steve Connelly called
The Guru of News
I've also written for alt.pub.dragons-inn a while back. One story is
and the rest are on Kelly
Cooper's page, which my dragon story has a link to.
In the early 2000's, I played quite a lot in
Genevieve Cogman's In
Nomine game, as Sephar, a Kryiotate of Jean. She's an excellent GM,
and the logs of the game may be found on her site.
Also, I've been playing in Keely's
Los Angeles game on and off with a Soccer Angel named Cassia who seems
to have one heck of a kick. Keely's an excellent GM as well, imaginative
and amazing with imagery even in the sometimes image poor MUSH format.
In the latter part of his decade I got involved in fanfiction for Bleach,
Saiyuki, and other fandoms. I've also started writing more original
fiction as well. You can find my more recent stories on my Livejournal and
on my Fanfiction.net
Stories here on this page are in roughly chronological order, except when
they're not. Poetry is elsewhere.
- Agony and Grace
- A story that was actually born at the ending. I thought it up while in
Albuquerque in 1997, told Genevieve about the ending, and then spent the
last two years filling in the rest. It happens right after her
- Just a log
- An oddly informal character study of Faber, who is a Malakite of
Creation, whom Genevieve has written into some of
stories. He's mine, I know his internals, but it's fun to see him
from outside, too.
- A Palm-sized Press Daimon and Sephar story
- This is done in Adobe's Palmsized
Press format. Get
the PDF, print it and then fold it according to
Adobe's instructions. It's mostly an experiment in the very short format.
The HTML version of the same story isn't nearly
as interesting, as the whole was mostly an experiment with the palmsized

- MOOOOOONSTER TRUCKS!
- A three-part writeup of a Fen Shui game that
Bryant Durrell ran for a
bunch of keen people at DunDraCon. Bryant is good at horror.
- Carl says that this story is one of my best, who am I to argue? It's
about princesses and frogs, kisses and rotary hearts which can't just be
stopped or started. It's another of those stories that begs for further
- Originally Kiss and Sean were all part of
Coming Home which was supposed to be a story arc, in the
Dragon's Inn and alt.cyberpunk.chatsubo, that would get Kardia back home
to her world and time. Her seventh brother, Sean, is introduced in this
story. Princess was one of Kardia's sisters, as are the other siblings
mentioned in the two stories. It's not as good as the other. Magic too
too often makes for wish fulfilment.
- Eli Application
- This is an application letter I wrote the summer of 1997, to play Eli,
the archangel of Creation on an In Nomine MUSH that was being
built. It was also an admin position, a story plotter position, as Eli's
more of a fixture than a character, but so it is. SJG has its own plans
for a MUSH, so the plug was pulled on it, but the thoughts are pretty.
- A Dream for You
- A dream that I dreamed which turned into a complete story with a few
background mysteries that a number of folks on alt.cyberpunk.chatsubo
turned into other stories.
- The Angelic Neon Blues
- A beginning scrap for what's probably going to be a novel.
- A story that was published (with my part in the writing of this unacknowledged to the editors by the authors, by accident) as the opening interlude
for the Wraith suppliment, The Dark Kingdom of Jade.
The ending here
is different than what was published by White Wolf.
- The Pilot
- Another story for The Dark Kingdom of Jade world, it
wasn't accepted in the final draft. Probably for good reason. *chuckle*.
- A retelling of a Tsimshan folktale of monsters and youngest sons
- Much Ado About Nothing
- An old Shadowrun game turned into a story
- A Faery tale game of a summer solstice in a sleepy desert town.
