I am a student from the Midwestern US, but I feel like I was born in the wrong place, at the wrong time (wrong dimension, perhaps?). I have loved Tolkien ever since I could read, and still consider him the greatest artistic genius ever to walk the earth. I am also interested in anime and manga, and have done a manga myself. I write as a form of escapism and as the high art form of writing and the sacred call to create great literature. 'May paper always be with you!'- Yomiko Readman, ROD
