Verbal Voodoo


Biography
Zed lives in England and hates everything except writing stories, black metal and exaggerating.


Of The Creations Below
These are the scant few of Zed's writings she deems good enough to show people, but not good enough to request money for. (The majority, of course, she deems unfit for others' eyes.) The best are marked with a *. They could all do with some hardcore editing, but since editing resides in a particularly unpleasant circle of Zed's self-devised hell, you'll just have to take them as they are. Or better, go and read some real literature.

(Praise is welcome; criticism, marriage proposals and chatter aren't. A reply is unlikely, as my hatred of spending time on the Internet knows no limits.)
