Greywolf the Wanderer was an active and popular member of ASCEML as well as Star Trek: The Original Series Kirk/Spock writer. He also belonged to ASC. He last posted to ASCEML in June 2004 and is very much missed; however he continues to participate in other fannish venues.

See An Interview with Greywolf the Wanderer.

History

In 2000 Greywolf participated in an interview series on the COCO CHANNEL, explaining that he had been a fan of the TV series when it first aired and had become a fan of K/S in his teens.

"I've been writing ever since I was 11. I write because I have all these stories busting to get out, and I have to write 'em down. Prior to that I was the Storyteller for my sister and my next-door-neighbor kids; we used to make up Trek stories and playact them. When I was real little, like six or seven, I used to play with my pipe-cleaner men and toy soldiers, and make up stories that they would act out. I can't remember ever not making up stories."

He only became involved with other fans in the mid-1990s but said "I could never find anyone else who saw what I did on the screen, until I got into UseNet near the end of 1996. My RL Trekfan friends thought I was fucking nuts. But then one day I found a.s.c., and *then* I found Killa's marvelous story "Turning Point".... [1]

Fans Comment

Greywolf... what can I say? "O Captain! My Captain!" would be a good start, I guess. ("We're not worthy" would be my second comment.) Greywolf is *the* master of hurt/comfort and an inspiration for anyone aspiring to write K/S. Again, I can't remember what he posted where, but I'm certain that "The Lost Sailor" appeared on ASC, so I'll start with that. This story is Greywolf at

his best -- the voices of Kirk and Spock have never sounded so right as they do in this piece, and his characterizations are dead on. I've read this piece a half-dozen times by now, and I'm still not certain how he gets Spock to be both so competent and so vulnerable at the same time. And for someone who claims to be a Spockologist, he sure does have Kirk's persona nailed as well! I look forward to every story he posts and save them for leisurely weekend reading over a pot of espresso and a stack of cinnamon scones. All

you folks that are devoted to other series would do well to take a side trip into Greywolf's den -- VOY fans, especially, will love "A Box of Rain". "China Cat Sunflower" offers a rare moment of accord between McCoy and Spock. "Choices" is a must read that takes the boys beyond K/S. "In Love With Your Ghost" is a heartbreaking music video -- bring your hankies. The two parts of "Wish You Were Here" are the kind of love letters that I wish I could write. Finally, Greywolf gets a big vote from me for labeling the S/Mc universe of "Sugar Magnolia" as an A/U! [2]
Here I have to restrain myself from blabbing on and on. Greywolf is one of the writers whose work has the most effect on me: his visions, his adept use of narrative, and his distinctive personality mark every piece he writes. His stories are not so much stories as glimpses into his heart. I remember reading "Deep Elem Blues" and having dreams about it for weeks afterwards. Such profound effects are the signature of an artist. [3]
