Dr. Kirtland C. Peterson—”Cat” to his friends and colleagues—feeds his left brain with science, his right brain with the rich feast of fiction, including SF and fantasy.

Currently reading Ursula K. Le Guin’s The Wave in The Mind: Talks & Essays on The Writer, The Reader & The Imagination and listening to The Hobbit, read most marvelously by Rob Inglis.
