So who is Lazlo Zalzac? He is one of the best free online writers out there.
How do I come to this conclusion? While not very scientific you can check for yourselves at a place called Stories Online or as it’s better known SOL. After getting your free registration out of the way and logging in yoou will notice a few things, the most prominent in my mind is that there is a lot of stories here. SOL has a very large archive of older stories and while you can guess that most of them are less then stellar, there is still a large selection of very good stories. The next thing you will notice is that most authors, but mot all, turn on what is called voting. Most stories would be lucky to consistantly break a 5 rating out of 10. This author doesn’t have one below a 7 in allof his 36 stories posted. Also if you look at SOL’s TOP 20 Classic Long Stories this author has 5 on the list.
From his Happy Harry Last of the Hoboes to his John Carter stories, his humor based fantasy/scifi stories such as “Magic” and “The Quatyl”, to his romance/life lesson stories such as “The Millionare Next Door” you will quickly come fall in love with his characters.
His Happy Harry/John Carter stories are basically to me stories of sacrifice for the greater good.
Magic and The Quatly spoof every Scifi and fantasy story/film in existance and will have you laughing for hours
The Millionare Next Door is IMHO his best story and it shows what you can achieve with hard work, some good friends and what really makes you a millionare.
A word of warning: SOL does have a lot of erotic/sex based stories and yes some of Lazlo’s stories also use elements in them, but Lazlo’s stories are not centered on sex. The closest he comes is in the spoof story Magic were he basically spoofs every other sex story with innuendo of sex.

I’ll finish this post with some of Lazlo’s descriptions of his stories.
The Millionare Next Door:
If happiness was measured in money there would be very few millionaires. This is a story about Dan Parker, a young man who starts his life as an adult with the odds stacked against him. Follow his journey of self discovery as he tries to achieve happiness. His story might make you wonder if you live next door to a millionaire.
The Quatyl are small and cute. With their short stubby legs, very soft fur, and small mouths they are basically defenseless. Did I mention that they are cute? They are very cute. They are also the most feared space faring race in the galaxy because they can telepathically control every species they’ve ever encountered. Oh, by the way, they just discovered the Earth.
Science is killing magic. The last of the magical beings decide that it is time for the return of a Merlin-like person to bring back the magic. The job requirements are: he’s got to be an unlikely hero type that is lucky; he’s got to own silver and be willing to trade it for a gift of magic; and he’s got to be a horny guy with a bad fashion sense.
