There are things in this world that are not Sam Sykes. This fact is as grim and undeniable as Sam Sykes’ own muscular resolve. Perhaps, though, you are the kind of person not satisfied by Sam Sykes’ irrefutable sternness and seek enlightenment on other subjects? Sam Sykes, were he less just and fair, would perhaps ask ‘why?’ Then he might slap you. But as Sam Sykes is currently the leading pinnacle of justice and equality, he will simply offer you many fine links to other authors, publishing sites and points of intrigue below.

Please note that all details relating to obtaining the affections and/or stalking Sam Sykes, such as his Twitter or Facebook profiles, can be found on the main page!


John “Footwise” Scalzi: Come read the delusional rantings of a madman.

Joe “The Gentleman Groper” Abercrombie: Sam Sykes has defeated this man in battle at least twenty times.

Patrick “Believe in the Beard” Rothfuss: Talented author; once sold Sam Sykes a tour schedule for six bucks and a bottle of queso dip.

Scott “Sasquatch” Lynch: Phenomenal author, may possibly be creature of myth.

Vicki “Red Death” Pettersson: Might have a crush/restraining order on Sam Sykes.

Alex “Spider-Eater” Bell: Incredibly talented, shockingly attractive, offensively young; also, she once totally smiled at Sam Sykes and everyone was like “woaaaaahhhhh” and Sam Sykes was all “yeah, I know.”

Mark “Charon” Charan Newton: Half fantasy author, half basset hound, all Newton.

Lou “Does Not Like to be Called Louie” Anders: The only man to have one foot in publishing, editing, authoring and champion bass fishing.

David “Fall of Man” Devereux; At the time of this writing, David Devereux’s website was scandalously bare. By the time of this reading, it has probably been upgraded to “crime against decency.”
