Hello, I am The Wandering Nerd, a digital dilettante who writes under the pen name S. P. Hoctor. As a young person, I could never quite decide what I wanted to be or where I wanted to go, so I wandered all over the place, both in location and interests. Because of this, I developed a general knowledge and fascination for the world and all its geekiness. I eventually settled down into an admin assistant job in the Southwest USA and met a lovely person to be my spouse, but my brain is still forever wandering. I have a few favorite interests, though, which I’ll probably ramble about on this blog more than most:

  • The cheesy amazing YA novel I am writing finished, Your New Church Family, which is now for sale on the Amazon Kindle Store, buy yours today
  • Classic/retro video games (especially from the Atari 2600 days)
  • Classic/retro computers (Commodore 64, Tandy 1000, black & white Macintoshes, IBM/Lenovo ThinkPads)
  • Star Wars
  • Star Trek
  • The paranormal and occult
  • DuckTales and other Disney Afternoon TV cartoons
  • National parks, wildlife and idiot tourists
  • Final Fantasy
  • Open source and online privacy rights
  • The cinematic genius that was Edward D. Wood, Jr.
  • My pet project, television violence
  • And many others.

If you would like to talk to me about any of the random nonsense I spew from this web address, feel free to email me at “t h e w a n d e r i n g n e r d (at) p r o t o n m a i l . c h” (without the spaces and with a proper at-sign of course) or try this handy form below. Thanks for stopping by!
