Poetry is a format I rarely turn to; my ideas are usually more readily expressed as a short story or novel. But there are some things you can't talk about without the grace of metaphor. My poetry tends to be far more realist than the rest of my work, though the imagery still has a surrealist or speculative slant.


I write all manner of short stories, from hard science-fiction to fantasy, light-hearted flight-of-fancy to heartbreaking tragedy. I occasionally play outside the speculative genre, but most of my stories have some form of speculative element to them.
