Graeme Smith. That's me. Fantasy author. Mostly humorous fantasy - at least, it is if you laugh when you read it. Otherwise, it's just fantasy (blush) :-).

When I'm not writing (well, or editing my writing. Or re-writing. Or editing my re-writing. Or... Quite. You get the picture), I'm doing other things. Some of them are fun things, like online gaming (If you know Bard Elcano, you know me. If you know a grumpy old dragon called Sephiranoth, you know me. If you know a tall, dark, handsome but brooding vampire, charming witty and brilliant - we never met. Sadly, that's someone else :-).) Some of them are less fun. Or sometimes fun. But you're not (I hope) here to find out about those. You want to know about me (maybe), what I write (possibly) or where you left your car keys (Probably. No, I don't know where they are either. But do feel free to take a look round here while you think about it :-).)

So here we are, and there it is. This is me - Graeme Smith, Fantasy author. Welcome to my worlds!

Fiction - Science or Fantasy?

I write. You’ve probably guessed that by now. Comic fantasy, to be precise. Well, it is if it makes you laugh :-).

I was talking with another writer about that. No, not the comic part. The fantasy. We were talking about Fantasy, and we were talking about Science Fiction. But mostly we were talking about the differences between them.

Very quick and totally non-scientific surveys among those we knew had led to a surprising conclusion. A lot of people who seemed to like Science Fiction said they didn’t much like Fantasy. And a lot of people who liked Fantasy?
