About Us

Strange Currencies is a blog and article site specializing in speculative fiction books, games, shows and film.

The team is made up of the following contributors:

Daniel Ruffolo – Site Owner and Editor-in-Chief

When Dan isn’t reading far too much genre fiction, or spending too much time playing games, reading forums and other highly nerdy pursuits, he works as a freelance editor, game designer and online community manager. With his background in Philosophy and History, he takes his fantasy world-building and story cohesion very seriously. He created Strange Currencies because the only thing better than reading books is sharing and discussing them with like-minded people. He hopes that Strange Currencies is able to bring together as awesome a community of speculative fiction lovers as he knows it can.

1 thought on “About Us

  1. Hello! I run the blog “Dragons, Zombies & Aliens,” which reviews books, movies, and shows in the sci-fi, fantasy, and horror genres. I read your article about women authors in sci-fi and fantasy, and all of your points are why I try to focus more on minority authors and characters. (It’s actually a requirement to get on my official “Favorites” list to have properly-written minority characters.)

    I was wondering if you’d be interested in letting me write a guest post on your site, or doing an interview over on mine.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!
