Hi from Canada

Hi there,

I am a new member but have read various posts for advice over the years. I write short stories of many genres, non-fiction, and a few novels. Nothing of great note, other than Z-Boat which will be re-released soon ( I hope )

I love all sorts of writing and read many different genres. Looking forward to meeting fellow writers.

Welcome aboard, Loki. I could not agree more with you about both Heinlein AND Firefly! You are going to fit right in just fine.
