The Orion's Arm Universe Project Forums

Hi I am Alex,

I was watching the videos of Isaac Arthur in order and saw the namedrop for OA right at the very beginning.

I am an independent author of several books, some of it sci-fi, which is my favorite genre, but also dabble in many other types of creative writing, as well as academic writing. I post all of it for free online, but also offer one book for sale currently (the other ones are no longer available), which includes a large amount of my short to very short fiction.

I have been a an undergraduate of arts majoring in political science since 2017 at our local city University, but due to illness it is looking like I won't be completing my degree for now (I was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 2002 and have suffered greatly under this illness, though not all is gloomy).

As far as sci-fi authors I enjoy, there is the obvious gang of Asimov and his contemporaries (not all of them). But more recent authors include Gibson and Vinge, who I devoured. Recently started a Brunner novel ("The shockwave rider"). I won't post a full list, but my reading has also suffered in adulthood due to the various pharmaceuticals I chose to take to alleviate thoughts that are not helpful. Sad I do use goodreads to chronicle my relatively humble list of readings.

I enjoy this work so much already, especially the hard sci-fi angle.

Thanks to this community for making OA! Smile
