Greetings. My name is Kuranes and I'm a fan of fantastical fiction, such as the works by HP Lovecraft and mythology--mainly Norse mythology but I'm
currently reading into Greek. I am so interested in this genre because I have become bored and tired with the tedium of modern day life and its
ability to kill one's imagination. One wakes up, goes to class or work, comes home, sleeps and repeats. There is nothing wonderous or mystical in
that and it's a shame that our civilization has no mythology or really any fantasy at all. This is why I like to read about the civilizations of old
and how they saw the world in such an imaginative and spiritual light. Lovecraft interests me because I think we have much in common, I can relate to
his stories, and I love his creation of a mythology for a civilization which has none.
Other than that, I'm a college freshman majoring in philosophy and ecology, as I plan to go into environmental law in the future. I am fond of nature
and it hurts me to see it so ignorantly destroyed. I also play classical guitar and double bass and play in a community orchestra.
Well, enough about me. I hope to have many interesting and imagination provoking discussions with you on this seemingly wonderful forum.
