Do come and join the Daggers in the Blue Dolphin, we'll share a mug of hyly and listen to Duke's tall tales. Unless you want to go explore the endless horizons of Terra in an airship complete with laboratory and soldiers to help with any untoward natives. I can't wait to share a hot tasty beverage as we explore the universe together.
           

Leeland is a man of imaginary worlds. He believes in things like computers running in clouds, machines that mine the universe, technologies to provide unlimited power, and ethereal powers of the mind to manipulate reality. Needless to say, it is a good thing he found roleplaying games in the 1970s, otherwise, he probably would have become a criminal mastermind. While living in the poorest timezone in the world for gaming (all the other timezone players look down on the Pacific as being too far behind to really play with the fun groups of the East and European times), he instead fills a lot of the lonely evenings writing fantastic, bestselling, epic fantasy and science fiction books. In short, he's become worse than a hardened master criminal, he is a professional liar and enjoys getting people to pay to read his tall tales.

Interests & Hobbies

Hey, I'm a writer, role-playing gamer, game master, computer scientist, and veteran. I think that is enough.

Favorite Movies

Quigley Down Under, Support Your Local Sherrif, Passenger, Knives Out, True Memoirs of an International Assassin, Wally, The Emperor's New Groove, The Count of Monte-Cristo (1975 version), My Spy, Léon: The Professional (1994), Kill Bill vol. 1 & vol. 2, and many more. If it is fun, sci-fi, fantasy, or some combo of those I probably loved it, just ask me.

Favorite TV Series

Mission Impossible (the original 1966 series), A-Team, Knight Rider, MacGyver, Doctor Who, Star Trek, Babylon 5, The Prisoner, Pinky and the Brain, Animaniacs, Sherlock Holmes (1984 TV series with Jeremy Brett and David Burke), okay-okay and the new Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman too, a few others you might get me to admit to. Why not ask me if I liked something you did?

Favorite Books

Too many, but I highly recommend the World of Tiers, Lord of Light, Terminal Alliance: Janitors of the Post-Apocalypse Series, Elantris. Plus everything from Lois McMaster Bujold, Timothy Zahn, and Mercedes Lackey. Oh, and you will probably like Columbus Day: Expeditionary Force series, and of course the Mystborn series from Brandon Sanderson.

Favorite Writers

Roger Zelazny, Piers Anthony, Lois McMaster Bujold, Timothy Zahn, Mercedes Lackey, Natasha Pulley, Isaac Asimov, and Lindsay Buroker.

Favorite Games
