Nostalgia For Infinity is Shaun C. Green’s blogsite. Shaun C. Green is going to stop writing in the third person now.
I’m a guy living in Brighton, UK. Over the years I’ve variously written short stories, flash fiction, unfinished novels, videogame reviews, criticism and commentary, book reviews, film reviews, record and gig reviews, mostly pointless list articles for websites that want to serve more ads, semi-comedic articles about something or nothing in particular, and this one time when I was a kid a story about the time a rescue helicopter came to my school.
The latter story, by the way, was rubbish. Children are terrible writers.
The name of this website is taken from a spaceship in an an Alastair Reynolds novel; a spaceship that more closely resembles a flying cathedral. I have a thing for bombastic pseudo-Gothic imagery because I was a Warhammer 40,000 nerd back when it wasn’t a daycare centre.
For some reason I want to know more about that guy
I have a name and I am standing right here.
I was born in Wakefield, Yorkshire in the 1980s. Nowadays I live in Brighton, which is a pretty cosmopolitan, progressive and creative city as Britain goes. It’s a very cool place to live, which is a nice bonus given that it costs an arm and a leg.
Things I like include reading literary criticism, radical progressive politics, anarchist and socialist politics, punk rock and the associated DIY culture, social justice causes and intersectionality, addressing my privilege and being called on my shit, drinking whiskey and hanging with good friends, videogames, and pretending I can notice the difference since I got a decent turntable.
Things I don’t like include men’s rights activists, Uwe Boll’s belief that he has a grasp of subtlety, people who get aggressive when you question their grand sweeping statements with an argument referencing facts, and all the times when I fuck up and do or say something stupid.
As well as writing stuff here I run and write for the videogaming website Arcadian Rhythms and play in a band called Wrecktheplacefantastic. I actually earn money by managing professional software testing, but I tend to keep work compartmentalised.
So now I want to get out of here
