What's Up With This Site and Who The Hell is Trent Ryan Katzenberger?
There used to be some fancy pants quote here by Hemingway when this site auto-generated but I hope what lies below needs no such frivolous embellishment. Howdy!
My name is Trent Ryan Katzenberger and I am a creator of speculative fiction, you know; fantasy, sci-fi, horror, alt-history, and generally anything that tries to tell a fascinating story while exploring some unique aspect of our reality whether possible in the real world or not. I have soooo, sooooooo many story ideas and I was tired of submitting to magazines and getting virtually no feedback whatsoever so I am publishing everything on the internet now in the hopes that I can find people who enjoy reading them and they will make someone out there happy to have done so.
Thanks for checking out my shit. I hope you enjoy it. ; 3
This website is a repository of my work, both fictional and journalistic, that is, below you will find sample pieces as well as links to or copies of all of my published work in addition to links to all of the other places you can find both my stuff and me online.
All of my publicly available writing, drawing, and campaign materials can be found on Medium, DeviantArt, FictionPress, and Wattpad. If you like you can check out my Facebook and Twitter accounts where I post sometimes too. ; 3
