Once upon a time, back when I was keeping myself out of trouble by spending much of my free time on peer-critique sites for writers, proofreading/line editing random chapters of novels written by total strangers (the way one does), I happened to see a listing for a SF/F novel-in-progress called Greyspace. I liked the way the title was spelled, so I clicked on the link and read several chapters of the story.
I loved it. I may even have geeked out a little bit in the midst of correcting comma splices and whatnot…
So that’s the short version of how I became a fan of Gregory S. Close’s fiction.
Greg set Greyspace aside only half-finished, though, because there was an epic fantasy novel (In Siege of Daylight) demanding to be written Right Now. So I never did find out what happened after the part he posted on WritersCafe.
Now, though, Greg has a Kickstarter thing to get funding for all the stuff an indie author needs to prepare a novel for publication: editing, cover art, etc. (His chosen cover artist is quite good, too.) You should check this out, read the sample chapters, listen to the theme music written by Greg himself (yes, he’s a musician as well as a SF/F novelist), and consider pledging a few dollars to getting Greyspace off the ground.
