F is for Falksen

Since I said that this month I would be focusing primarily on a writing theme, I decided to take this opportunity to talk about another author I know. Last time it was about chocolate-covered Josh Corin, this time it's about the amazingly delightful G.D. Falksen. I could use all of my positive adjectives on this man, I adore him. Also, he does all the Internets.


And that's just the shit I found without really looking. I swear, if I hadn't met him in person, I'd think he existed exclusively on the internet. I don't know how he gets anything done in between doing all these things.


We crossed paths on the Steampunk circuit. Honestly, in the grand scheme of things, we haven't spent that much time in each other's company, but... cons are a different world, especially when you're working them. There's a lot of stress, a lot of bullshit, and nothing ever, ever goes quite right. The company you keep can keep you sane. This guy right here? Turns every green room into a fuckin' Class Fest.

He once slept on the floor of my apartment and I once slept on the floor of his hotel room. The difference was that he wasn't too drunk to go anywhere else. That's class. Oh, and he writes. Also, he once sang me this song:



Is there anyone that you don't see often, but makes a big impact in your life? And join me Monday, when our topic will be "G is for Geek."

I'm going to go check him out on Twitter, I always think that a person's Twitter tells you a lot about them. For example, my Twitter quite clearly shows that I know bugger all about social networking!

Wow, I'm only on fb, twitter and goodreads and I thought those took up too much time. How does he find time to write?

I was just thinking the other day that I'd like to read some steampunk. Now I have an author to keep in mind.

Kellie - Don't worry, I'll follow you and then the blind can lead the blind.

Heidi - Those things you mention *do* take up too much time, he's just an extra-planar being, I'm convinced.

Roland - Please do, he's very good.

Yvonne - You're welcome, and thanks for stopping by!
