Author has written 4 stories for American McGee's Alice, Harry Potter, and StarTrek: The Original Series.
Quizzical Sphinx is an author whose work has been described as possessing no redeeming social or literary value whatsoever--which is why you should read it. Enjoys pina coladas and getting caught in the rain. Current obsessions include revealing the Jungian archetypes embodied in Warner Brothers' cartoon characters, and trying to figure out a way around Emmanuel Kant's narrow view of human morality. Rabid literary critic with English and psychology background. Does line-by-line or overview beta-reading upon request.

NEWS! (as of 23 June 2003):

After finally finally (finally!) getting my sticky hands on the fifth Harry Potter book, I was suddenly inspired to complete this tired old fanfiction of mine. It's now completely out-of-date, thanks to new information, but at least it will not be an incomplete completely out-of-date story anymore. I shall work on finishing it up in the weeks to come. Hope you enjoy!

For those of you who read SONG OF NIGHT and have figured out why Vane's friend in Durmstrang is forbidden to visit Hogwarts (I thought it was almost too obvious, but it's all obvious to me), for the love of God, don't voice your suspicions on the review board! Write to me and I will confirm whether you are right or wrong.

Oh yeah: and I was Lizzie Borden. I'm strong enough to admit that now.

Get Sirius by EntreNous reviews
James and Lily are anxiously expecting the new baby, but Sirius doesn't quite echo their excitement. What does a guy have to do to become a godfather around here? Complete, subject to later revisions. PG for mild language.

The Domesday Books by ThePet reviews
Sebastian Domesday, defective detective, lives at 227d Baker Street with his small friend Arthur Mulberry and his basset-hound Moriarty...some cheeky humour, nothing gross. An affectionate parody.

Aberforth's Folly reviews
A young Albus Dumbledore goes quasi-Lovecraftian in this tale of inappropriate spells, Old Gods, and livestock. Just another case of picking the most obscure character in the series and running with him. Rated W for Wrong.

Over the Rainbow reviews
Original STAR TREK meets THE WIZARD OF OZ. Short and very very silly. PG for one or two curse words that I've already forgotten, and an instance of Glenda the Good Witch getting smacked on the rear.
