Marc Sorondo: Author of Speculative Fiction
I've always loved to read, and I realized at a young age that I'd like to be the guy who wrote the stories too. The vast majority of my writing falls somewhere in the horror genre. Some of it fits neatly into that category, while some stories venture so far into other territory it becomes a stretch to call them horror at all - hence my self-proclaimed title of Author of Speculative Fiction rather than of horror.
If you read any of my stories, I hope that you're entertained. I don't seek to change your life or to examine some harsh reality of human existence. I don't expect you to be enlightened by any of the tales I tell. Instead, I'd like you to have some fun. Often enough, I hope you're a little scared, though sometimes I'll try to thrill you with adventure or (rarely, very rarely) work in something a little romantic.
If you're here looking for some sort of literary mirror that will show you things about your own life, then I'm sorry to say you'll probably want to look elsewhere. If, on the other hand you're looking for a good story, a good time, then (I hope) you've come to the right place.
