Now in his 30s, Neal first discovered Godzilla at age six and immediately became obsessed with the Kaiju King and all of his over-sized brethren. As time passed, he embraced various other kaiju of the genre as well.
Neal started writing while still very young but nothing substantial until age 17. Daring to write cross-overs involving Godzilla and other movie and TV franchises, he knew it wasn't going to win any popularity contests but didn't care at the time and still doesn't. As for WHEN ALIENS ATTACK!, Neal feels that an earlier quote of his in a thread on the Kaijuphile forums sums it up best:
June 3rd, 2005 - That's when it all began, and quite innocently, too, may I add. Back then, no one knew where we were going, much less what was going to happen next. A humble topic for casual discussion transformed overnight into an epic fan-fiction like no other.
And who are we, these brazen individuals who came together and dared to push our collective work into the public eye with such gall and zeal? Are we New York Times best sellers? No. Do any of us have degrees in literature? No. Have any of us even dared to take on such an arduous task as this before? No. What are we? We are fans; fans of a genre that has existed before any of us were even born. A genre full of iconic characters that are beloved by millions which we have dared to write about, expand on or even change altogether in some cases. Why? For a lot of reasons, actually. Because we wanted to, because it intrigued us, because we wanted to see just how far we could dare to take it all.
Have we over-hyped our ambitious story? Maybe. Have we perhaps bitten off a little more than we can chew? Quite possibly. Are we perhaps invoking the wrath of an entire fandom by doing this? Most likely. When the kaiju fan-fiction community looks back on this point in our history, what will be said? That we crafted an amazing piece of literature like no other in this genre that people will talk about for years to come? Or will they say that we fell flat on our faces and embarrassed ourselves to such a degree that we will never go near another keyboard or dare ever show our faces in their midst again?
I guess only time will tell. But whatever the final outcome, I absolutely refuse to be ashamed of what has been brought to life here within these pages. The experiences shared and friendships forged will stay with me for the rest of my life and we can all take pride in our tireless labors.
In closing, all I have to say is this: people who love the kaiju genre with all of their hearts wrote this story. We know we can't make everyone happy and we are not going to try. We wrote what we wanted to write and threw caution to the wind. In the end, we simply hope that we have created a tale that will be fun, exciting and entertaining for our readers.-- Neal Krafthefer, Co-creator
