Cullen A. Groves

Cullen is a bearded college student who enjoys sci-fi and fantasy.
 
 
 
I am inspired by grand visions of the human race spread across the galaxy, rubbing elbows with alien species, or still just trying to get by alone. Most importantly, I am interested in exploring the nature of humankind; are we a blight upon existance, or a glorious power manifestly destined to stretch ourselves across the universe? Let's see if I can actually manage something like that. . . . Heh. Well, I also enjoy fantasy and the like, particularly Lord of the Rings type stuff. So, that's something of what I intend to write.

Okay, so I was inspired more by the sci-fi side of my interests at the time I wrote that. I would like very much to write epic space operas and hard sci-fi... but fantasy is so much easier to write, so write it I do. In the regards of fantasy, I'm more inspired by traditional folklore in a lot of instances, (as well as, of course, LoTR) like what is highlighted in the "Enchanted World" series of books--anyone else familiar? They're amazing works, detailing the legends across worlds and ages; every book entails its own theme, such as Dragons, or Water Spirits, or Night Creatures, and tie together all the old myths dealing with that particular theme from Europe, the Middle East, and Asia (there's not so much from Africa or the Americas or Australia, now that I consider it... And it's funny how all the continents start with A except Europe... Antarctica, Aisa, Africa, Australia, America [south or north]...). Anyway, they're very inspiring, and I prefer traditional folklore to much of the stuff that the market pumps out anymore, in the veins of Dragonlance and Forgotten Realms. That stuff is all too synthetic (though I admit, I do enjoy a bit of Dragonlance now and then, as well as Baldur's Gate). Hopefully, what I crank out using the older roots of all fantasy won't seem quite so much.

You know, you are an amazing writer and I'm surprised you don't do it more. I love your work and aspire to be even half as good as you are. Keep up the good work!
