Arun Jiwa @ 03-06-2008

Hi, My name is Arun Jiwa. I’m Futurismic‘s newest blogger, and I’ll briefly introduce myself. I’m 19, and I grew up in India. I moved to Edmonton, Alberta in Canada when I was 8 and I’ve been living there since. Right now, I’m spending five weeks in the South of India. I’ve been a fan of the written word since a very young age, and I’ve been reading SF, Fantasy, and Horror for most of that time.

Offhand, a list of my favorite authors in SF include (but are not limited to) William Gibson, Ian McDonald, Alastair Reynolds, Charles Stross, Benjamin Rosenbaum, Neal Asher, Gene Wolfe and Tobias Buckell.

In Fantasy I’ll read anything by Robin Hobb, George R.R. Martin, Patrick Rothfuss, Neil Gaiman, Gene Wolfe, and Lynn Flewelling.

My own blog is The Middle Way

I look forward to blogging with Futurismic.

    Ah, Tobias Buckell fan, eh? He used to blog here himself, y’know – though these days he’s too busy writing books and other stuff that people pay him money for, which is as it should be. Good writer and a super bloke as well, as we say here in the UK. 😉

    Aww, you guys are making me blush. I miss blogging here, maybe in ’09, right now I’m so busy some days it feels like I have to remember to stop and breath LOL.

    Ah yes, I’m definitely a Buckell fan. Can’t wait to read Sly Mongoose. OTOH, it would so cool to say that I blogged on the same site as Tobias Buckell.
