Matthew Rossi

Matthew Rossi @MatthewWRossi — Matthew Rossi is a synapsid, perhaps descended from Cynognathus. He was born in Providence, Rhode Island, and grew up there before leaving to see the world and be mistaken for a sasquatch and/or minor singing celebrity in various locales. He currently lives and writes in Edmonton alongside his amazing and beautiful wife and their cats. He’s written three collections of speculative fiction, Things That Never Were, Bottled Demon and At Last, Atlantis. He loves playing warriors in World of Warcraft, barbarians in Diablo III, and he’s beginning to notice a pattern here.

The Queue: I love utterly impractical swords

Look at that thing.

I love it. I love every pointless, over-designed centimeter of it. I love that it has blade catchers on the back. I love that the blade’s sweep makes it entirely unbalanced. I love that hilt with the giant moon that looks like an eye. You’d probably injure yourself swinging this thing if it actually existed, and I love it.

This is the Queue. World of Warcraft is completely, totally ridiculous, and that’s what’s good about it.
