Michael Martinez

Houston, Texas, United States


I wrote the weekly/monthly Tolkien and Middle-earth column for Suite101 from 1999 through January 2003. I now contributed essays to MERP.COM.

Past contracts include writing backgroud essays for Toy Vault's Middle-earth Action Figures (including credited liner notes for at least one action figure), writing cyber-card stories and trivia for CyberAction's Hercules and Xena line, a bi-weekly column on Hercules and Xena for Suite101, technical articles for some programming magazines, etc.

My current interests include Web design and promotion and helping authors promote their books on the Internet. My primary domain is Xenite.Org, a general purpose science fiction and fantasy Web site.

Interests: science fiction, fantasy, history, internet
