Yeah, I know nobody ever reads these things. The only way I do is if it's one of my friends. My name's Brian and I live in a small ass town. I decided to keep my profile short this time because I know you all probably hated it.
I'm a college student now studying Computer Information Systems. Web development if you wanna be specific. I'm online a LOT these days. So I figure I could get into the swing of writing again.
11/28/07 - Hey! I'm ALIVE! Yes, the cobwebs are still there, but I have a bunch of maids working on that. I think I found mold on the cobwebs so I brought in the experts. I have taken an OFFICIAL hiatus from writing Regonian Light and Red Velvet. But I am back and kickin' thanks to the Herscher Project. If you don't know what it is, herscher.cwgservices.com/

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING IS MY PERSONAL OPINION AND WILL DELETE ANY COMMENTS THAT ARE OFFENSIVE OR ABUSIVE TOWARDS IT.
I generally these days read books that do not fit cliche fantasy. I hate Tolkien's formula, and I'm sick of reading it in every book I pick up. That is why I enjoy Martin and Bakker best so far because they break away from that norm. And don't suggest a book to me unless it meets that standard. I will not read Harry Potter or Eragon, for they aren't real fantasy. Yeah, stop making that ugly look at me. Christopher Paulino or whatever is name is made money off of copy and paste. If you wanna discuss this further, I'd be glad to. Rowling made money off luck. As she put herself in an article I read, "it probably won't happen again".
Tolkien, now, I respect.I don't feel the need to read his work or see Peter Jackson's take on it. I've read too much fantasy to ever be thrilled with Tolkien's plot. It's plastered all over the fantasy market. If you like him, fine, I got no issue with that, but just don't be bragging he's the best. That's false. George R. R. Martin shattered that title and took it for his own. Bakker is on his way of doing the same. True fantasy fans want more than just a hero with a happy ending.
I hate music so i'll make this my heroes section.
Any person who breaks the norm and suceeds.
Arya Stark, my favorite character EVER

Yahoo, Brian is back! *starts singing: "guess who's back, back again..." and gets beaten with heavy clubs*
Glad to see your littke place alive and well again. I despaired when you said you were abandoning it because of moderation some time ago. Well, anways, now it's okay. I'm off to read some of your new stuff.

Well, I can see I've been away from your Wyvern shelf for far too long... I'll have to see what I can do about finding some free time to read... No, make that LOTS of free time to read... Looks like I've fallen waaaaaaay behind.... Brian 'Dulcet' Bergstrom
replies: " *bows* I am truly honored to have such a great writer browse my shelf. I will surely take a peek and spend a lot of time reading your new stuff. I will be anxiously awaiting your comments on my stuff. Thank you very much for stopping by."

I followed comment from Camilla's page to here, as well as a number of muffin crumbs....
You've got quite a selection, so I will randomly choose, unless I am prompted otherwise.
Okay, then... eeney, meany, miney, moe..... *shuffles off into your stories...*
*Pokes his head back in* Nice hat dude! ;-P***

After almost two years, I’ve been considering resuscitating “The Project” -- if so, would you be interested? I expect it would again operate in the same fashion as the earlier editions, and I will attempt to gather a group consisting of former contributors as well as “newbies”… If this sounds like “fun” to you, email me (or just drop by my Wyverns shelf) to let me know!
p.s. Not to worry, Brian... Since you would qualify as one of the "newbies", I would pass on to you all the gory details of writing for "The Project", and wouldn't even charge the customary quart of blood...

I am searching for my friend David (D. A.) Heeley, as you are a fan of his I was wondering if you have any info'. My name is Marc Godfrey, I am the 'Marc' in the 'thanks to' section of the book Ronin. He has many friends here who all miss him dearly... it's as if he has vanished from the face of the earth. We are all surprised at the fact he has not released the third part to his series which was near completion 8-9 years ago (the length of time he has been missing).
I don't really expect you to have any info (I'm trying EVERYONE) but if you do that would be a big help.
my email - firstname.lastname@example.org
thankyou.... he is good isn't he

Hello there. I was doing a search on google for D.A. Heeley and somehow stumbled upon your page...I say that as though the reason that your page came up in Google is some great mystery, but you mention Heeley as being a favored writer. I just read Ronin and am curious if Mr. Heeley has written any other books other than Lilith and Ronin. Perhaps you could inform me. In the meantime I shall spend some time enjoying your writing
Have a lovely day Sir Bergstrom!
