2017 - 06 - 17- Time for revising my profile, I guess...
I am 61 and I've been writing fanfic and original stories for roughly 50 years by now, in different genres and different languages, from which English is only my third one. To many of my stories I have found a beta, to others I haven't, so there will be mistakes. Obviously. If you're offended by them, there are two things you can do: hit the Back button or volunteer to beta. Spellcheck and grammar check can only do so much for a story.
However, I won't rewrite any of my stories, just because a certain sort of reader - one that seems to be multiplying on this site lately - disagrees with my view on characters or events. Newsflash, people: you are not paying me to cater to your personal tastes. I'm doing this for free, in my spare time (which, next to a full time job and family obligations, is very spare indeed), out of love - or frustration - towards the original, and I am old enough to know what I want to do and to form an opinion about the source material. If you have a different view on it, feel free to PM me, where I can actually answer, or to write your own story on the matter. But taking someone else's story apart because you would like to read a different one is NOT something I would call constructive.
Also, before you start eagerly point out supposed errors in signed reviews, kindly check your canon facts first. I always do extensive research, long before I start writing, and having nonexistent errors pointed out to me is really annoying. I'm not perfect, obviously, but make sure you are actually right before you would start correcting me.
For the record: I do intend to finish all my stories. And I will. Eventually. In the rare case that I might not, abandoned stories (one single piece so far) are clearly marked as such.
Note: There are some elements in my Tolkien-related stories that have become rather popular and have been used by other writers. Still, they are not canon, and to avoid any misunderstandings, they are listed below. You are welcome to use them, but please give credit.
Reviewing policy: I usually review stories I like for some reason or the other. I can do so without reciprocation for quite some time. But after a while I grow tired of the one-sidedness and will stop. Unfortunately, that means that I don't review all that much in these days.
2006 -11-09 -- Due to the ever-changing rules of this site, I can't risk posting all my stories unedited here. So, some of them will have scenes cut, some of them lack entire chapters (like "The Joy Machine"), some of them, mostly my vampire fic, can't even be posted here in the first place. For that reason, I've created a few LJ communities to house the unmaligned stuff there.
For all this communities the same rule is valid: adult-rated fics and recommendations are friends-locked, visible only to comm members. Only adult members are accepted. Some of the stories also have visuals linked over there. Enjoy!
2005-09-04 -- the Homepage link now leads to my new science fiction and horror page. The sister site for Tolkien fanfiction and original fantasy is currently under construction. The old Otherworlds site has gone the way of all Geocities sites, alas, so it isn't there anymore.
2005-04-29 - until we get the archive under roof properly, check out Gildor's Library (Yahoo Group), where parts of our stories that are not here can be found.
Also, the Memory Alpha list now has its own stories-only group, The Otherworlds Science Fiction Library. (Yahoo Group)
If you are a Trekker and interested in crossovers or AU-stories, you are welcome to join Memory Alpha (Yahoo Group).
I'd like to give the proper links to all those groups, but links no longer seem to work here. My apologies.
