Get paid to write fiction
I've written some instructional material for pay, and I've written a master's thesis (which I guess I paid for), but I'm still waiting on that first paycheck for my fiction. Help me out here! I need a little something to justify how much time I spend on it. Let me know what you like to read, give me your contact info, and I'll see what I can do.
My biggest literary influence is Philip K. Dick, though my writing style tends more toward Neil Gaiman. I indulge in a bit of genre hopping, but my specialty is a subversive brand of surreal science fantasy known as “dreampunk”. Dreampunk fiction often makes use of surreal imagery, esoteric symbolism, dream logic (which may not be entirely logical), dream-related technology, false/subjective realities, shamanism, and Jungian psychology. It might be described as a more mystical, less technocentric version of cyberpunk, but dreampunk also draws heavy influence from postmodern literary fiction. It winds up somewhere in the neighborhood of transrealism, slipstream, and the new weird. So I'll be doing a lot of that.
