About the Author

Skywriter is for all practical purposes Jeffrey Channing Wells, best known in Internet circles as the co-creator of the award-winning daily webcomic "Skin Horse," whose coincidentally equine name is just that.  He also writes non-pony fiction, which you should totally check out over at Scrivnarium.net.  He quite sensibly views winged ponies as having the best of both worlds, a point which is totally indisputable so don't even try.  To sum, up, Ms. Lovingcup Harshwhinny is best pony.  Thank you.

Hey, everypony, remember Rainbow Rocks?  Of course you do.  Remember how you were watching the big battle royale at the very end and how the Sirens did the whole ears-tails-and-wings transformation, just like our heroes did, but on top of that, they seemed to have the ability to project full-animal hippocampus-like tulpas corresponding to themselves with which to attack the heroes?  Of course you do.  Do you remember thinking Huh, that's a bit weird; I wonder what exactly is going on with that?

Well, maybe you do, maybe you don't.  Maybe you kind of glossed over it and thought there was nothing any more strange about that than about our heroes eventually summoning a giant anonymous glam-rock God-Alicorn to lay the smack down.  But I certainly had a moment of... dissonance, as it were, and I could never fully get it to come together.

Well, author and all-around swell guy xjuggernaughtx is having a go at resolving this dissonance with his newly-posted "Resolution," and while it's not finished yet, I really like the concept and the way it's going so far.  Have a look and see what you think.

Eh, this might keep your attention. I don't know how much you keep abreast of the manga and anime set... personally, I hate. At best its nonsensical garbage. Once in a blue moon you get a good one (Durarara) but mostly no. At worst... I go screaming into the night as though I was wanting to avoid it like the plague, images of tentacles and claw phallus seared forever in my eyes, phrases like "nazi death rape machine" echoing through my mind (seriously, the guy who had that phrase and made the... comic that went with charges people to spend the evening with him in his apartment and talk about matters political, social, and sexual. Yeah... I'm gonna toss a few sheckles into the hat for the chance to converse with such a clearly well adjusted and upstanding member of society.)

But then... It happened! First a little backstory. Kouta Hirano was formerly a member of the "Adult" part of the manga franchise, and word has it he sucked at it. Profitable, but porn always is no matter how horrible, which it all is. But shockingly, he left the smut business to strike out on his own, bringing us the superb work Hellsing (Vampires actually being awesome again? What a novel concept! With actual likeable protagonist who don't light up like a disco ball and who actually have personalities above the level of book paste? Whoa, this fella's really pushing the ol' envelope!) But lightning has no much as struck twice as it has hit the ground with a Fat Boy like boom!

Drifters. In this manga, Kouta has dropped various real world historical figures (The sundance Kid, Hannibal, Joan of arc, Jesus, and a trio of japanese folks and a few others) into  a Tolkien esque like setting, and he doesn't muck it up!

I certainly wouldn't say no, but I would warn you in advance that my reading quota is very low these days because I have the attention span of a gnat and cannot settle down on a book like I once could.

Good Skywriter! You're a big time college graduate writer type of person! May I make a humble recommendation regarding reading material (its not pony, but its still pretty good)
