Author has written 2 stories for Ratchet and Clank, and Teen Titans.

OY!

Hello and welcome to the profile in progress. ;-)

Name: Stephen Stryker

Occupation: mad scientist

Preoccupations: video games (obviously), writing (also hopefully obvious), composing and playing electronic music, collecting music, books and anime, building the ultimate stereo, online racing and Anarchy Online, art, thinking a lot about lots of stuff, Italian food, girl watching...

Essence: on my tax returns, I always write some whimsical job description, and on this year's, I wrote "Thought Provoker." I think this describes me today. Thinking, pondering the deep mysteries and meanings of life consumes me, and has for a few years now. I want to know The Truth. Since becoming a pocket philosopher, I've tried to weave what little truth I've gleaned from this crazy mixed up world in my crazy mixed up stories and music, and so far, I haven't had any complaints.

The Big One reviews
Just when the year is off to a quiet start, things start going wrong. Strange, dark days are coming. Can the Titans see through the clues to learn the real threat to the world? And will they survive unscathed? Rated M for a few suggestive scenes and occasional foul language.
