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, trivial list articles to help websites serve more ads, semi-comedic articles about something or nothing in particular, and this one time when I was a kid a story about a rescue helicopter that 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 novels and literary criticism, videogames, punk rock and the associated DIY culture, other forms of music that are almost as cool as punk rock, radical progressive politics and intersectionality, anarchist and socialist politics and theory, drinking whiskey and hanging with good friends, being called on my shit, videogames, and pretending I can notice the difference since I got a decent turntable.
There are things I don’t like but I deleted that list because I’m a pretty posi guy. That may sound like an odd thing for a critic to say, but I’d like to think it means that when I do criticise something readers will take note, because I’ll be about to explain my reason for doing so.
As well as writing stuff here I run and write for the videogaming website Arcadian Rhythms and play in a band called Wrecktheplacefantastic. I used to earn money by managing professional software testing, but of late I’m having a stab at writing full-time.
That is me to the right, eating a hip flask at a Halloween party. I am lazy with costumes and go as a ‘zombie punk’ most years.
So now I want to get out of here
