An Host of Furious Fancies
This is a private website on the Vancouver CommunityNet, intended partly as a self-teaching exercise in web editing, and partly as a resource centre for some friends, and partly as an exercise in sheer exhibitionism.
(I have another
website advertising my professional clerical services at Garth's Office Solutions. For a copy
of my services and rates, or my resume, please private-message me at
garth.van.spencer at gmail.com.)
For some time, I have wanted to showcase samples of my writing – both articles, and amateur stories – and to provide some reference articles for other people who are interested in the subjects I cover below.
As you may gather, my interests revolve around some communication issues, some cultural or social issues, fandom, fanhistory, science fiction, self-publishing, and something I call “practicing sociology without a license”.
Comprised of club convention lists, fanzine lists, apa lists, and anything else useful I could gather
"The Art of
Conrunning" - notes collected from greater minds than mine
"Cults" - they're still out there
"How to Human", or Supplementary Life Skills (the kind of things we thought we knew already)
My Nonfiction articles:
"Elves in Space" (a satire)
"If Jesus Were Texan"
"Lost in Transit" (stories)
Paragon (a novel)
"The Jade Ring"
BC Heathen Freehold
Burnaby Writers Society
Northwest Convention League
