My pen name derives from Gabriel Byrne's character in the thoroughly brilliant Coen Brothers film, Miller's Crossing.
My interests are reading (favourite authors include Philip K. Dick, Orson Scott Card, George MacDonald Fraser, H. P. Lovecraft, Alan Moore, Joseph Heller and J.R.R Tolkein), filmmaking, watching films (favourites include The Dark Knight, Reservoir Dogs, Primer, The Godfather and American Beauty), and writing fanfiction, strangely enough.
I am currently embarking on a promotion crusade of the film Primer. This low-budget film was made for just $7,000, and is one of the best, most intense, rewarding, and re-watchable films I have ever seen. Buy the the DVD from amazon now (here if you're in you're in the States), or weep at the opportunities lost. Also see the film's website, maintained by the guy who directed, wrote, starred in, produced, and composed the music for it, here.
