"The only characteristic freaks share is our knowledge that we don't fit in. Anywhere. It is for us, freaks, that I am writing—and it is about us."
—Crispin Sands, The Land Between Solar Systems.

Crispin Elliott Sands is an internationally-ignored Seattle-based, bourbon-addled scrivener writing for a frightening legion of dissolute weirdos.

Member: Pacific Northwest Writers Association and the Richard Hugo House.

"This is my prayer for you: Imagination, a stern will, and lots of raucous laughs. I wish you a wild mix of people to breeze through and linger with over time. Be well, my friends—and watch out: The punch is spiked and the mad dogs are out tonight."
—Crispin Sands, Introduction to The Scent of Darkness.
