Sample writing

I have several published short stories and articles, along with research work and countless other assignments. Below are a few samples.

Penumbric Speculative Fiction Magazine
I wrote several articles for Penumbric between 2002 and 2004, including an interview with the director and one of the writers for Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (924 KB), an in-depth look at the potential of virtual idols (172 KB), and a feature article on the state of cyberpunk as a genre (281 KB). Sadly, the magazine is defunct and no longer online; however, you can click on the above links to see pdfs of those articles.
