What I'm Looking For (Me, John)

I'm always asked what kind of work I'm looking for. Of course, I'm eager to read anything well written, plot-driven, stringent, original, etc. - but isn't everybody? One genre I'd like to see more of in particular is sci-fi. Ideally, the otherworldly elements should be used to tell a human story. I'm less inclined to care about an invasion of lizard people if the humans are flat and one-dimensional. Also, it's more interesting to find the strange in an everyday setting. Aliens in space are less exciting than aliens in your sister's closet.
