I guess it's time for me to write my bio for public consumption. I am 34 years old; I have a BA in Drama, and an MFA in Playwriting.

I kept following all the RQ products, and discovered the RQ Digest in 1991 or thereabouts.

He has become a Yggling by adoption, and is a member of their ancestor worship cult (made up of a lot of hungry ghosts, for the island was destroyed in a celestial disaster. Now we have this plan to bring herdmen  to our island, Trond, and raise their INT en masse... - ---
