Bio

Matthew Chan grew up in the harsh Tundra of Ontario, Canada, braving freezing temperatures, taming wandering polar bears, and helping the local populace battle the occasional giant ice spider - in other words, a typical Canadian childhood. Deciding he wanted more, he went to University to obtain a degree in Computer Science and Mathematics and currently works as a 3D artist and content producer for a major 3D tools provider. His biggest aspiration right now is to turn Threads of Fate into a published series. When he's not writing (or defending Canada from the ice spider hordes), Matt enjoys getting lost in various video games, tackling mountains on his snowboard, or shooting and editing video.

    Conceptually, Tolerance is a story that just about anyone can relate to. Who hasn't had to deal with delays at customs, crying kids, "generously proportioned" passengers, irritable flight attendants, and so forth? The premise alone begs for the reader to sympathize with Doug. The problem is, Doug is just not likable. From the outset of the story he's judgmental, elitist,... read

    You won't find any big action or high-concept in The Car and Candice - in fact, the story itself is almost boldly down-to-earth. Despite the fact that very little actually happens, the prose is pretty sharp and varied enough to hold interest.

    Conceptually, City Sanctions seems as though it is a piece cut from a movie like Cloverfield - a slice of normal life thrust into the claws of something anything but normal. It reads as one long action scene, which in-and-of itself is not bad. The problem is that, almost by the nature of the twist at the end, there just isn't any weightiness to any of it. The story reads... read

    Hi Matt, Thanks for adding myself and The Flower Woman to your favourites. It's genuinely much appreciated. I would have thanked you sooner, but the pressures of the day job have kept me off TS for some time. I hope "Threads of Fate" does well here. I'm not actively reviewing at the moment, but I'm hoping to get my life back sometime in November, I hope it's still doing the rounds then. Based on the synopsis it's the kind of story I'd like to read.

    Take care & thanks again.

    Mike.
