I am an unfortunately erratic writer, prolific for starting and stopping stories as more ideas flow forth so I shall apologise for that here. I do however intend to finish every single piece I start and hope to upload many finished articles in the future.

I generally write sci-fi. It's always been my passion and probably always will be. Science is my greatest interest (aside from reading and writing of course) and I try to incorporate as much of it as I can. However fantasy and the abstract notions of emotion with regards to fictional characters and how that interacts with readers has always interested me, so I tend to try to write either intrinsically difficult or unusual characters to gauge readers reactions to them.

Thank you for taking the time to read any one of my short stories, sections of longer stories or any other abstract notion of story I have on here.


Regards, Charon (Tom)
