  1. Nice research.
    I’m indeed grateful to browse through this list. Pengicians/Writers are now becoming great force(s) to reckon with. It is not easy to write. A writer has to be extra focus to craft his characters, stories, conflicts etc from the abstract world. He has to consider the 2nd and 3rd eye(s): ‘readers and critics’ when inking what his muse has directed.
    Some of my works are on http://www.pengician.com and other sites. I love creativity with every fiber of my existence.
