In Kalin's own words: "I am someone who wants to be completely different, though logical and honest. I have many writing goals, but two major ones are to promote (blatant) honesty and to encourage people to stand up for their beliefs.  I never make promises, but, at this point, I've pretty much decided that I will never sell rights to any paper publishers.  I believe stories should be free.  However, I'm still a greedy human, so I'm stoked to have the opportunity to test this new system."

In the editor's words: Kalin is a gifted, unusual writer as well as a passionate, caring person whose work is driven by his beliefs.   To learn more about him, his interests and his weblinks, please visit the Discussion Forum.
