Timothy Allen, Website Designer for Superstition Review, major in Writing for Literature & Film. He is a senior this semester.
Superstition Review: What do you do for SR?
Timothy Allen: I make sure the website is properly formatted and looks good, and that all of the content from our various authors and artists is properly displayed.
SR: How did you hear about or get involved with Superstition Review?
TA: This is my second semester at SR. I heard about the class through an e-mail last year and thought it sounded interesting for experience, since my intent–back then–was to possibly get into website designing as a career.
SR: What is your favorite section of SR?
TA: I would have to say Art, because it takes more creativity and work on my part to get it all displayed properly; it’s logistically interesting.
SR: Who is your dream contributor to the journal?
TA: Stephen King. There isn’t much to say about him that you don’t already know, except that he’s a master at what he does.
SR: What was the first book you remember falling in love with and what made it so special?
TA: The Wizard Children of Finn by Mary Tannen. I just liked the way the story took two kids from this ordinary world and put them in a somewhat extraordinary one.
SR: What are you currently reading?
TA: I’m currently reading the 5th book in the Death Gate Cycle by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman, and will also soon be starting on the Rose of the Prophet trilogy by the same authors.
SR: Do you write? Tell us about a project you’re working on.
TA: I am currently (after a seven-year hiatus) starting to work on a couple of fiction novels again. One, about a little boy who learns that he can sing miracles into existence, and another about a group of people who’ve decided they’ve had it with America’s “decline” and move off to an island to start a new, better society.
SR: Tell us about an art project you’re working on.
TA: I’m currently designing and building three other websites besides SR, including my own site at Angel Author, a site for a business idea that my friend has for Blast’n Beans, and a site for my capstone project in my major.
