    Hello, my name is Mikhaeyla and I love reading and writing <a href="http://mikhaeylakopievsky.wordpress.com/about/">speculative fiction</a>, particularly stories with a dark, sci-fi and dystopian bent. I love movies like the Fifth Element, Children of Men, Being John Malkovich, Donnie Darko, Sin City, A Scanner Darkly and Nightwatch. Favourite books include The Road, Perdido Street Station, Divided Kingdom, Brave New World, Number9Dream, Snow Crash and Wool. I'm currently writing my first novel, <a href="http://mikhaeylakopievsky.wordpress.com/bookstore/">Elementals</a>, and am looking forward to joining the discussions here on the forum about all things sci-fi :)

    Mikhaeyla, welcome!

    I love the list of movies & books you're into. Have you seen Dark City, with Kiefer Sutherland & Jennifer Connelly, yet?

    Yes - great movie!! There is something about dark sci-fi that I am drawn to. I think that's why I'm fascinated by dystopian literature and keen to inject that same dark, brooding, hidden feel into the book I am writing...

    Mikhaeyla,
    A very good book to check out is "Swastika Night" by Katherine Burdekin (writing as Murray Constantine). It is an excellent novel written in 1937.
    It certainly inspired my first novel.
