Hiya! I'm Doug "Spyglass" Marshall, with SpyglassRealms as the moniker I operate under in some form or another across the web (except the places where I couldn’t switch over from my previous nethandle, WorldBuildersInc.) I'm an astrobiology major, a gigantic space nerd, and as the name sorta implies, I’m a huuuuge worldbuilding geek. On a related note, I produce two podcasts: The Escape Artists, an actual-play TTRPG show with some friends set in Aedrynn; and Starhopper Radio, a short-form science fiction anthology series set in the Diaspora universe.

You can find all of the sites on which I lurk through my Linktree. Enjoy the tour!

Of course! It seems like a very interesting concept and I’m eager to see how you develop it!

Ayyy! Another space fan and guy who is obsessed with space! I am really loving the artistic details you put into Diaspora and it seems like eye candy to my detail loving eye and brain. I see a lot of similarities in your writings between some of my favourite hard sci fi authors and I love it! Cant wait to see more of your work! Congratulations and keep up the great work mate! You are gonna become our Issac Asimov and Arthur. C. Clarke!

Thank you so much for the kind words of encouragement!!! :D I'm so glad you enjoy the Diaspora that much; I've put a lot of time and detail into it over the years and I look forward to working on it much more! It's funny you should mention Clarke, actually; the technoculture of the earlier centuries of the Diaspora 'verse is inspired significantly by the Space Odyssey series!
