Bleak. Dreary. Desolate. Hopeless. The future is approaching, an unflinching juggernaut of indifference. Civilization, the hallmark of mankind’s achievement on Earth, stands in its way.


Dystopian fiction provides a framework for handling the unexpected. Pandemics. Asteroids. Floods. Solar Flares. Nuclear War. Robots. Zombies. Civil War. Ice Age.

I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
