For some years I was interested in writing Cyberpunk/Grunge type stories. My main influences at this time included William Gibson, Irvine Welsh, and Jeff Noon. This genre no longer appeals to me much. Currently I'm more interested in epic mythic science fiction/fantasy. It would also very much have a surreal element. From this point of view I like China Miéville's surrealist "New Wierd". I'm also interested in cross-over (imagine Integral philosophy synthesis applied to fiction!), geek/nerd/roleplaying game subcultures, and epic or archetypal narratives in the manner of Hymn of the Pearl, Lord of the Rings, Siddharta (Herman Hesse) and Savitri (Sri Aurobindo).
I am hoping to write a story with plenty of archetypal/esoteric themes, geek/nerd/roleplaying adventure tropes, including near future post-apocalyptic, George Romero zombie, Lovecraftian Cthulu mythos, and more. I don't want to say more because I don't want to disperse the energy. I've written some of my earlier ideas on my mythoworlds (unfortunately since changing my email i can't access this blog).
Re my website here, I had more writing stuff posted, but unlike metaphysics and spirituality it is more personal so as I no longer relate to or am intersted in it I've taken it down. But I'll leave the cyberpunk stuff because it represents a period of my life in which that sort of thing was a meaningful outlet for my what Sri Aurobindo would call vital (orectic/emotional) being. But since I have matured and transformed that part of my nature, it is no longer relevant the way it was.
Reviews of movies (and occaisonally books), and my thoughts on these as regards my own writing. This section will gradually grow as more titles are including.
I'm not sure if the following webring is still viable but i'll include it anyway
