About the Editor, Mike Davis

I’m Mike Davis, the founder and editor of this eZine.  I live in Texas with my awesome wife and son, 3 cats, 1 dog, and lots of books.  I’m a writer, a reader, a poet, a seeker, a Taoist, and a Lovecraft fan.

I believe in magic: The magic of reading, the magic in a story.  The feeling I get when I look into my wife’s eyes and when I watch my son play.  The magic of a dark and stormy night; the magic of reading a book by the window on a cold rainy day.

Random facts about me:

  • I once won a nationwide poetry contest; first prize was a $100 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble.
  • I was raised in a very destructive cult; I had to deal with physical, mental, and emotional abuse.  I left as soon as I turned 18.
  • I have a large collection of time travel books.
  • I am a huge Sherlock Holmes fan.
  • I have severe Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue.
  • I love old-time radio, as well as newer audio drama shows.
  • My favorite movie is The Man From Earth.
  • I’m a seeker and I like to learn.  I’m interested in science, especially astronomy.  I’m intrigued by the paranormal but I require evidence; I don’t take things on faith.

  1. Ah, The Man From Earth… Aren’t we all? Or more correctly, just passing through. :) Marvellous film. “One of the few truly erudite ones” as a gentleman I know opined.
    You’ve had a fine journey so far, look forward to joining in occasionally from now on.
    I’m a writer, stroyteller & poet, although somewhat behind in output and fandom (surprise surprise). Hope to natter sometime.
    Cheers!

  2. Thanks for the bio, Mike: You seem to live a full and balanced life. I’m sorry to read about your conditions; up until six months ago, I too suffered chronic pain, so I have a little insight into such matters. And I was pleased to learn of your love of OTR; I am a great fan of “The Shadow.” Take care, and here’s to the eZine!

  3. Hi Mike,
    Thank you for maintaining such a quality zine. I really appreciate the book reviews, reccomendations, links and all other aspects. I am a very introverted person, you and the nice people who follow the zine give me motivation to become more involved. Thanks again ! – melissa

    • Hi Melissa — thanks so much for your note. It really meant a lot to me — especially what you wrote about motivating you. I showed your note to my wife — it made my day.

      I’m glad you are enjoying the magazine and I hope you enjoy the ride!

  4. Oh my God, Mike, I never knew you were raised in a cult – me too. Maybe it’s one reason the idea of an indifferent universe resonates, and the search for alternate realities is so compelling.

    • Hi Mike,

      Wow, a cult? That is crazy. Sorry, I couldn’t imagine.

      I recently asked a question about any other games besides the ones in the give-away. I sought out the answer at boardgamegeek.com. They reviewed 38 board and card games there, from Cults of Cthulhu to Necronomonopoly. I was glad they didn’t go into the Chaosium RPG games I am already familiar with, just stuck to board games and card games. Heck, they even had one called Cthulhu500, based on Nascar, lol.

      Keep up the great work at the ezine! I love it. When I find myself in a more financially secure position, I intend to donate. Right now, I have a baby on the way, a little girl (Alana) due on April 7th and I am between jobs, a common problem here in Michigan. I used to have a great job, working for the Lear, which had a contract with the UAW, making $26 dollars an hour. Then, we lost Clinton to the son of the first Bush, the towers fell, and, well, as you know, we have all been in recovery ever since. Perhaps one day, after college, I will have another job like that.

      Anyways, sorry for babbling.

      Mark A. McLemore.
