    Hi, I’m Kat and I write sci-fi and fantasy books. My debut sci-fi novel Mind Storm comes out May 10, 2011 from Thomass Dunne Books/St. Martin's Press. Basically, I blew up the world and played around with the survivors, most of which are human, but some of them are not.

    Hey, we all have to find our fun somewhere, right?

    I can be found here.

    Hi, I'm Kek-w

    I write Alt.New English Library Wyrd, Post-Cyberpunk, Respun Science Fantasy and most points between.

    There's a paperback back-catalogue here, which also includes links to some on-line pieces I've done for FLURB.

    (Which reminds me, you should check out Brendan - see: the first page - he's cool. And D Harlan Wilson's a dude too. Check his stuff. He guest-voiced on one of my music pieces.)

    No full novels except *arrgh* half-finished ones and some completed novellettes, so I'm a total fraud.

    Thanks.

    Hello, I'm MeiLin Miranda and I lurk here. :)

    I write fantasy with a strong erotic component:
    An Intimate History of the Greater Kingdom

    ... and soapy western fantasy with a strong silly component:
    Scryer's Gulch: Magic in the Wild Wild West

    A good-sized chunk of the former is available at the site, and all of the latter. The first book in the IHGK series is available at Kindle Store, B&N, Smashwords, and direct from the author.

    Hello. I write loads of stuff, and I've had a little bit of success as a writer of strange things. I have a few books out there at my Lulu store to check out, and a bunch of free stuff here

    I write a lot, and am always working on new stories. Currently working on a steam punk inspired tale.

    Well, that's about all for now.

    I've lurked for a while and figure this is a good place to start posting.

    I have my own website - www.JETobal.com - with a number of my fiction pieces on it. My style is pretty much what the title of this thread says: weird.

    For example, i have one short story entitled "Fuck You, Stephenie Meyer" which is a 30-page, very tongue-in-cheek tale about a man with a rare mutation of vampirism which causes him to crave semen rather than blood. And another story called "The Taxicab Messiah" about, well, a taxi driver who thinks he's the messiah.

    But i'm currently working on a novel called "A Kind of Drug" that's about a bizarre form of writing discovered at an archaeological dig in Morocco. When read, the writing elicits an immediate, intense, emotional reaction and is highly addictive. Then things get nutty. I'm serializing the novel online which means that (very much like Freakangels), a few pages are posted every Friday. I only started doing this two weeks ago, so there's obviously still a lot more to come.

    Oh, and everything on my site is free to all.

    If you like my writting and want to receive future updates, feel free to check out my twitter or my facebook.

    And i guess that's it for me.

    Hello. I am Ravis. I write stuff that nominally falls into the horror genre, but often contains too much black humor, dialog and real-life weirdness to read like the stuff most people expect (and too often get) from horror. My e-novella Ghostwriter is available here via the marvelous folks at Smashwords--it's a quick and modern story about a haunted apartment, undead prostitutes, Ghostbusters and Grateful Dead jokes and the perils of having one's screenplay produced under the unfortunate name The Crevice. I live in St. Petersburg, Florida, which is beautiful but happens to be where the Tampa cops tend to send all their homeless. My wife Rebecca and I are currently slightly anxious because one of our dogs is having surgery on Wednesday. Also, I sometimes wish I was born in the U.K., if only for the whole "getting a pass on saying 'cunt' all the time" thing.

    Cheers all,

    Ian

    Hi,
    I'm Sam Enthoven. I live in London, England and I write fantastical action thrillers aimed at 11-15-year-olds. The three I've had published so far are: The Black Tattoo (features demonic possession, flying kung fu and vomiting bats in contemporary London and Hell); Tim, Defender of the Earth (features giant monsters hitting each other with important London landmarks) and my latest, a survival horror thing called Crawlers. The cover art of Crawlers has been described as the most disgusting in modern children's literature. I like my job. :D
    You can find out more about me and what I'm up to at my homepage: www.samenthoven.com
    Thanks and best wishes to the incomparable Mr. Ellis and everyone who reads this,
    Sam

    Hi. I'm Greg, and I write all sorts of dark and horrible things for a living. I've done a heap of stuff for the RPG industry. At the moment, I'm doing a lot of work paid for by subscription on Kickstarter and then released into the wild.

    You can find a bunch of it here: http://www.gregstolze.com/fiction_library/index.html

    I've also got a novel, Switchflipped, being released soon by Ghostwoods Books.

    Hi, I'm Ian Whates, and I write SF, fantasy and dark fantasy. To date I've had some 40 short stories published and have two ongoing novel series: the 'Noise' books with Solaris (space opera with a twist) and the 'City of 100 Rows' series with Angry Robot (urban fantasy with steampunk overtones and SF underpinning).

    The second volume in each (The Noise Revealed and City of Hope and Despair) is due out in the next couple of months. (Oh, and I'm currently editing four anthologies as well, but more of that some other time)

    Thanks to Whitechapel for the opportunity to strut in public!

    Hi, I’m Pat Kelleher. I’ve written a First World War /science fiction mash up. It’s my first novel. It’s called No Man’s World: Black Hand Gang and it’s published by Abaddon Books.

    Too late for steam, too early for diesel - it’s 1916, it’s World War One Tommies on an alien planet, and it’s a long, long way from Tipperary. Trenches ‘n’ extraterrestrials - what’s not to love? Fast-paced action and imperialist adventure for the 21st century. If it helps, imagine Charley’s War drawn by Kevin O’Neill.

    Black Hand Gang

    You can pick it up here, check out some of the background behind the book here, and you can find me on twitter.

    The follow-up, No Man’s World: The Ironclad Prophecy is out this summer.
    Thanks to Warren for the opportunity to pimp my pulp.

    I'm James Lovegrove and I've been knocking about the genre fiction biz for years, notching up some 30-odd titles published.

    Lately I've been producing a series of military-SF thrillers featuring men versus the gods from various different ancient pantheons. The latest is The Age Of Odin and it's out right now.

    Up next, in a complete change of tack, is Redlaw. It's a vampire novel centring on a hard-bastard cop dealing with the problem of fangy undead infestation in London. That's appearing later this year.

    You can see the covers, and find out more, here and here.

    End of self-pimp. Please leave the cash on the dresser on your way out.

    Hi,

    I'm Eric Brown, SF novelists and short story writer. I've had published almost forty books in the genre, along with children's books for reluctant readers. My website, www.ericbrown.co.uk should be up and running pretty soon. Latest novels for Solaris are Guardians of the Phoenix, a post-apocalyptic tale of cannibalism and survival sixty years from now; and The Kings of Eternity, set in 1999 and 1935, about immortality and a hundred and one other things.

    Hey-o,

    Late to the party, but that's never previously stopped me from shimmying up a drain and creeping in an unlatched window to expose myself to the unwary. I'm an author all sorts of things, most of them unpleasant--recent developments include my short story "The Adventures of Ernst, Who Began a Man, Became a Cyclops, and Finished a Hero" going live at the website Beneath Ceaseless Skies and my second novel The Enterprise of Death edging toward publication (March 5th in the UK, the 24th the Colonies). Here be the cover:

    Enterprise Cover

    It's about an African slave coming to Europe in the early days of the Renaissance, whereupon she learns necromancy, tries to dodge the Inquisition, and meets the artist turned mercenary Niklaus Manuel Deutsch, a prostitute-happy gunslinging Dutchwoman, and the infamous alchemist Dr. Paracelsus, among other sundry goings-on.

    I'm also the author of The Sad Tale of the Brothers Grossbart, a novel about twin brother graverobbers sacking their way across 14th century Europe, with lots of monsters and witches and buboes and infanticide and such. It's sort of a comedy. The cover for that one, by the brilliant Istvan Orosz, seems to be popular even with readers who loathe the contents.

    I make an admittedly half-assed effort to keep my website and blog up to date, and can be found in the usual skummy harbors of the intersea. Thanks for the opportunity, Warren, and well met all around--my to-read list's been nicely inflated from this thread. Cheers!

    @McKenzie - I'm in hotel room, vacationing on the other side of the country. KnoWare Man's Walton Leese has been entertaining me during my travels, making me chuckle with stories of America selling off states and accounts of watching live 3d hallucination-dreams.

    Bought it on a whim. More evidence to always trust my gut.

    Well done, sir. I eagerly await finishing during my trip home.
