I've been writing my fantasy since 2001 and my sci-fi since 2002.

Current Residence: Reading, United Kingdom

Operating System: Windows 7
MP3 player of choice: iPod touch
Wallpaper of choice: Horizon by ~hameed

Interests
Hello, world.

I'm on here to keep up with the great work that the other Deviants put up, and to add my own.

Give you an idea of what I'm working on:

My fantasy: a Napoleonic/Victorianesque created world with squabbling colonial empires, crumbling religions, Byzantine politics and a magic system that's as realisitic as I could get.  No elves, dwarves, dragons, super-powerful magical artefacts, forgotten scions of long-lost lines of kings, princesses to rescue, evil gods to defeat or necromancers with deformed minions.  Oh, and no Wars to Save the World, either.  Think gentleman-explorers, rakes, scoundrels, spies, politicians and confidence tricksters.

My sci-fi: a hard sci-fi setting told via characters instead of tech or Power of Plot, supposing that Earth is only politically unified *after* we start colonising other planets, set in 2600, with much the same as the fantasy setting, but no magic and with a realistic means of interstellar travel.  There's no aliens, no cyborgs, minimal lasers, no AI gods about to destroy mankind, no mind control, no time travel and almost no faster-than-light.  Oh, and no Wars to Save the World, either.  Think soldiers, rakes, scoundrels, spies, politicians and confidence tricksters.

...you get the idea. :)  I'll post up extracts from my writing, bits and bobs of universe-building, and perhaps even some supporting art.

Let's see how this goes.

Cheers for now,
Leovinas

Hello there! I just looked through your gallery and realize that you also have a science fiction universe just like me. This is so cool!

I like your 2D infographic of the Solar System. May I know what your story is mainly about? (:

Hello!  Glad to hear it.  :)

Yes, of course.  The premise is an arc of five books following individual characters (two or three per book; one character, a military officer, is common to all 5; none of the other major characters are military) as they participate in events which lead to a climax in book 5.  I suppose it's mainly political/military/'thriller' based, but I'm not sure how it would be classified just yet.  It's as realistic as I could get it and is mainly character, rather than grand-arc, based.  No aliens, no hyperspace, no superlasers, no killer AI/robots/genetic supersoldiers; I wanted it as believable as possible.

Does that make any sense?
