About Richard Phillip Hoffman
My Writing in General
My writing is geared toward the fantastic. I primarily work in fantasy, science-fiction and horror and I'm fond of emphasizing extreme elements in each avoiding the tendency people have to make these genresas borilingly common as possible which some people take for realistic. That is not to say that I do not believe in realistic characters and in fact I believe that all my stories are de-facto real meaning that while characters may have starships, magical spells or the like they are still bound by all the elements of human nature and would find their feelings and relationships and other such every day things written to the level any traditional literay tale would expect of a character.
