My Bio
Born in June, 1969, I am a jaded misanthrope with the mind of a scholar, the heart of a warrior, and the body of a poet. As you can see, I don't take anything in life seriously, not even myself.

Favourite Visual Artist
Ashley Wood (3A), Manchu (Philippe Bouchet), Tim White (RIP), Peter Elson (RIP), Chris Foss, Richard Corben, Juan Giménez (RIP), Jean Giraud (RIP), Pepe Moreno and Angus McKie
Favourite Movies
Star Wars ('77) - before Lucas effed it up and put "Episode IV" into the intro scroll and before Lucas spent the next 30 years destroying the franchise through his own lack of imagination and creative ineptitude.
Favourite TV Shows
Ones that are well written and depend on plot rather than CGI or FX to draw an audience - Stuff like "LOST" and "Firefly" - you won't find me watching "Jersey Shore" or "American Idol"
Favourite Bands / Musical Artists
Ambient, trance, heavy metal, alternative, classic, country, sci-fi and fantasy movie soundtracks (OST), basically anything but (c)rap music.
Favourite Books
sci-fi, history, car and bike rags, art books, very little if any fantasy stuff - I prefer sci-fi
Favourite Writers
The usual suspects
Favourite Games
Gamma World ('77), Fallout Series, Borderlands, expensive board games, miniatures, Heritage's Galacta 25 (a particular soft spot for that)
Favourite Gaming Platform
X-Box 360, X-Box One, PC
Tools of the Trade
Whatever I can get my hands on, I'm a hoarder when it comes to spare parts and art supplies
Other Interests
Too many to list, too little time to enjoy them fully. Needless to say I'm never, ever bored.
Well, my website, www.goingfaster.com is back up. Some of it was logistics (a debit card expired and auto-renew was cancelled) and I was lazy enough to just let the site de-rez for a few months because ... life ... lazy ... didn't think anyone really cared about my site. I was ... wrong. I've had a vast amount of email from fans the past six months asking and begging and pleading for the site to be reloaded or, if not, could parts of the site be mirrored. People offered to pay for webhosting (not a problem, actually) or host the site on their own domain space. Reddit and other assorted social media posts were lit with posts about "Is Christopher T. Shields still alive?" and "What happened to going faster? I've had several published authors contact me about my site and my health and offering assistance in hosting or rebuilding the site. It's quite humbling and I had NO idea my site was in any way as popular as I now understand it to be. I apologize for letting it slack and

Late in posting this loss as well ... that makes two GREAT artists lost in April of 2020. I always admired Gimenez's work and could spot it a mile away. I first fell in love with his work in the pages of Heavy Metal magazine when I was a child in
