    A special message from the author.

    Hello there. Since you are reading this, thank you for coming. Special thanks to @nikvoodoo for having just enough trust in me to give it a shot.
    More thanks to a few English teachers I have had in the past that suggested publication could be in my future and to the forum members that urged me to write something... other than my incredibly long winded posts.

    This has been a hobby of mine that started as a doodle on the back of a Geometry class paper some 23 years ago... and continued as such for quite some time.
    I really started to get the ball rolling in 1998 when I started writing a whole lot more seriously... and again a few years ago.
    A couple weeks ago when I got to talk to @Kc himself about being a writer and what could only be described as the We're Alive Fan Cast After Party... I also got to taking about writing with @7oddisdead and @katlero... well, a little voice in my head said: "Hey dumb ass, why don't you get back to writing again?" So I did and here we are.

    An extra special thanks to Kc for not only having written and produced such an incredible program, but also providing an online forum that has grown into a fantastic community. One that can afford a tiny little corner of its soap box for me to stand on too.

    What you might be about to read could have horrendous Yoda grammar, bizarre punctuation with far to many commas, grammatically incorrect use of Latin and occasionally conversations with a glaring lack of attribution. As far as I can see it, my calling these drafts is generous. Don't get me wrong I'm going to try my hardest to put my best foot forward but the extent of my education in writing is limited to High School English classes.

    But, with that said, you still may find these stories fun and engrossing. I sure do.

    What do I write about? Near future "hard" Sci-Fi. Part Aliens (Colonial Marines), Starship Troopers, Babylon 5, a bit of Firefly/Serenity, a dash of Globe Trekker and just a tiny pinch of just about every award nominated war film since the golden age of cinema... hope that clears things up.

    Near future... its about 210 years in the future and humanity has spread it self out into the stars, encompassing a "sphere of influence" some 110 light years across. Along the way, we have made some friends... and as you might expect, many of the problems we find on Earth today, well... we brought them with us and have inflated them to interplanetary scales.

    Enjoy. Who knows? I just might write "We're Alive: Atlanta" too.


    Thanks,
    J. Arthur Smith

    Hey, get a load of this. Guess who started writing again and has a spot in the fan fiction subforum?
