The Versatile Blogger Award!


In addition to the “Versatile Blogger,” is there also a “Top Blogger” and “Bottom Blogger” award? (Sorry, my mind went there).

A few weeks back (sorry, been on vacation mode!), one of my favorite short story writers and video game journalists, Peter Tieryas Liu, nominated this humble blog before you for a “Versatile Blogger Award.” Part and parcel of the nomination/award is a bit of fun protocol:  As a nominee I am in turn supposed to nominate other blogs and/or bloggers I find worthy of recognition. So, being my own prize selection committee, here are just a sampling of blogs I would recommend, in purely random order:

I’m also supposed to share seven things about myself, so here they are in all their silly, random, but true glory:

  1. My first foray into publishing was at nine years old, when I tried to cobble together a Nintendo Power magazine knock-off (shelved–and rightly so–shortly after conception).
  2. eBooks made me realize just how much I hate physical books, i.e. having to angle them so and precariously hold up the free weights they can be when I’m reading lying down.
  3. I want to decorate my house with Yoshitaka Amano prints, install a giant koi pond in my bedroom, and get a live-in sushi chef.
  4. I would like Nobuo Uematsu to compose the soundtrack to my life, and for Kate Bush to sing the theme song.
  5. My bucket list consists of meeting Michelle Kwan, writing a Doctor Who episode, and penning a video game script.
  6. I know my way around time-sucking vortices. I’m your man should you need a cartographer of them.
  7. Heaven for me is being a swat-proof fly on the wall, while hell consists of having to go to casinos and clubs (even though I’ve got moves like Jagger).

  1. Many thanks for the nomination, Rio. I’d love to write a Dr. Who script with you in our writing studio complete with a live-in sushi chef and koi pond to keep the creative juices flowing and to wrap our heads around the wibbly wobbly!
