Dear all

Hello! My name is Darren Reid, and like all of you am a big fan of Tolkien and just about any other type of fantasy or science fiction. To let you know a bit about myself, I am a sturggling/aspiring author whose first book, Lord of Darkness and Shadow (a Fantasy/Science Fiction story in a similar vein to the work of Frank Herbert, Eric Van Lustbader and Iain M. Banks) has just been released. I also am organising a writing contest for my publisher doing very short stories, something i think i seen mentioned on this site. If anyone wants more details of that stuff, just reply to this thread :)

Hope everyone is good,

Darren Reid

Hi Darren and welcome. I gather you are from the UK? An author? A real author? Wow! Some of us only dream of that....

Anyway, enjoy the site and please feel free to join discussions.

Oh man! I was away for just one day and I miss the arrival of an author! A real live author!!! I'm just staggered. Can you tell us a bit more about your new book? I like to read a lot of fantasy.

Hi Cloverless

Just visit the website - I don't wanna spam this board - the advertising board on the other hand ;) If you do decide to get the book i would love you to write me a little review - it's a kick hearing opinions from fantasy fans, good and not so good ;)

Take care everyone

Does my name really inspire people to "Cloverless", whatever that is?

But never mind the name. I'll visit the website.

And yes, Mir, I know you're the sharp one.

Howdy and welcome; enjoy your stay. Good site, good folks, much data and thought provoking discussion. All of which makes me feel a little guilty for being away so long.....
