Welcome

My Patreon is now live!
Challenges of the Deeps is on John Scalzi's THE BIG IDEA! (I somehow missed posting this when it happened, but it's still up there!)
REGULAR BLOG POSTS:  This week, I explain why even hard-SF authors lie to you about the future! Sorry about the delays in updates; I've got a lot of things, both writing-related and otherwise, taking my time, and I presume most of you would rather I spend my time writing new stories if I have to make a choice between these blog posts and writing!
If you don't really know who I am and got here by chance, I'm Ryk E. Spoor; click the "About Ryk E. Spoor" tab if you want way too much info on me. I'm a science-fiction and fantasy writer with, at present, twelve published novels and four more under contract. Take a look around!
