  • Hello There

    Hey all, the name's Sean. Was a member of this site briefly just before it blew up, just found out that its back up! I'm 18, living in Cumbria, but off to study maths at Cambridge uni in a weeks time. I've been an avid reader for years, although I don't read fantasy and sci-fi quite as voraciously as I used to - nowadays, non-fiction and more mainstream stuff have to get a look in!

    Welcome back, Dolphan/Sean. Enjoy your time at Cambridge - I spent 3 years studying Literature and Philosophy there and it is (or at least was - 16+ years ago) a great city. Quite a few second-hand bookshops alongside all the 'new' bookshops where I spent significant portions of my meagre student grant as I recall. (But then I had an excuse given the nature of my degree course. )
    _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
    _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
    _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
    _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

            Welcome back. Cambridgeshire is as drizzly and windy as ever - coming from Cumbria you should feel right at home ;-)
            The name that can be named is not the true name.

              Haha,Dolphan you are a bit like me.I joined the forum some weeks/a couple of months? before it crushed and I am a physicist.Hell,not Cambridge though...it would open many doors and jobs for me but I was always so lazy...I preferred reading science fiction than studying real science!(University of Ioannina...I quited...University of Thessaloniki...a couple of years I attended no course!)
              I hope you will do better than me.You don't have to try hard to accomplish this...don't worry!Although I guess Cambridge has pretty hard departments,we had more lessons to get to graduate than you.
