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, one of the few bands to make a real impression on me, Rush, gets its own Under the Influence post! Last two weeks: we look at The Rhesus Chart and a turning point in Charlie Stross' Laundry series, and then  Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade is On My Shelves!
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!
