My name is Mack, and I enjoy reading science fiction to a point where one day I picked up old stories and started writing science fiction again.
I tend to be a bit of a private person - in the sense of valueing privacy - but I do maintain a blog and I roam around on Twitter as well as a few other places such as Goodreads. I welcome you to check in, to have a word and I always like to hear what readers think and want.
I'm a sociologist by training, originally. Expanding later on into psychology and economics. Sometimes these are fields that bring something to the stories, but not always.
I should warn you though, the characters I create can and do die. They are human after all. Not redshirts. My stories have a tendency to explore science fiction as an instrument of observing human development, extrapolating possible scenarios, digging holes and observing my characters climb out - or not. Most of the time I write the story from the eyes of one or more characters, giving the reader their private thoughts, recordings, their diaries.
The stories I write tend to play out in the fictional universe in my head known as Of Suns And Spheres. It's a pretty dark place. One where mankind has known its share of troubles during the course of its history. A universe where we have come to a point where cataclysms force our lessons on us. In Of Suns And Spheres denying the same lessons from repeating the same mistakes every time no longer works.
If you'd like to know more, or engage in discussion, feel free to find me online. And if you happen to come across interesting science fiction stories, let me know, I am always looking to read more.
