I don't think there's anything pretentious in that. I think we all write the kind of stories we want to read to some degree at least.
It was in no ways meant to sound pretentious either when I said realistic (science fiction and fantasy are my favorites genres). I just meant stuff that couldn't have dragons, swamp monster, or intergalactic space wars and stuff. My reason for asking was that it sounded like we might have quite similar taste in stories, so I was wondering if you were up swapping stories for reviews once in a while? (not that I have anything in the works right now, since my current novella project is creeping its way to an early grave)
