IGP came about from the brainworkings of founder, editor, writer, gopher Shiromi “Nicki” Arserio. She often jokes that she started IGP because no other scifi magazine would hire her. In truth, her position as a blogger for Illusion TV dried up, so after months of driving webmonkey and copy editor Rob crazy, she finally decided to create the Inter-Galaxy Portal.
Shiromi “Nicki” Arserio, Editor and Founder
Along with writing for IGP and IllusionTV, Nicki has written short stories and novels, travel and outdoor articles, articles for a Buffy the Vampire Slayer site, as well as being a regular contributor for a Hawaii fashion magazine.
Too many to list. Buffy, Angel, Firefly-Joss Whedon is God. Dr Who, V (the original), Life on Mars/Ashes to Ashes, Star Trek, Star Wars,Babylon 5, LOTR….
Pitting my animals against RC control daleks… Two men enter, one man leaves. Exploring the big wide world, acting, making goblin/faery art, curling up at home with a good book.
Again, too many to list, but reality television and rude drivers are definitely amongst the top 5.
If your name is Shiromi, why the alias?
I could tell you why they call me Nicki, but then I’d have to kill you.
WebMonkey Rob, Co-Founder and Copy Editor
Our very own web monkey Rob is another long time member of geekdom. After many a day at the coffee shop with Nicki pouring over the latest sci-fi magazines,they decided to co-create the Inter-Galaxy Portal as a place where they could use their geek powers for good. Rob is retired military. He’s seen a lot of action, but luckily, no xenomorphs.
Star Wars (original trilogy, original version!), Aliens, Star Trek II
Mustangs, military and monkeys. Duh.
Military inaccuracies: poor weapons handling, chicken wing, sloppy salutes, etc
