So, taking a dive into the blogosphere, an introduction is in order. My name is John Claude Smith and I write speculative fiction in all its tattered adornments, primarily weird, dark stuff that straddles the line between horror, modern fantasy, and magic realism. Lots of psychological elements and out and out bizarreness abounds, though it also has a universal appeal; well, the novels do, no matter how "out there" they get. The short stories, they may sit in your belly (and mind) like a swallowed goldfish that's decided to embrace its inner whale; or should that be piranha? The object of the blog is to talk about fiction, mine and other writers whose work I appreciate, and whatever else comes up as I sit here typing. It's going to be an adventure. Strap in, hold on and, please, keep your hands in the vehicle at all times.
And remember: Words Matter!
PS. Gimme a week or so to work out some of the kinks visually with the blog, but enjoy the words as they flow out across the page.
