About Me
I am a lifelong fan of science fiction. I started on the juvenile novels of the '20s and '30s that my father tucked away in the basement: Tom Swift, the Great Marvel series, Don Sturdy and the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs. I started reading comics as Marvel exploded on the scene in the mid 1960s. And I soon graduated to grown-up stories in Analog and Galaxy magazines, and SF and fantasy novels of all varieties. I am also a barely published SF author, having a non-fiction piece published in the final volume of Tor's There Will Be War anthology, a novelette in Volume IV of Baen's War World series, and a number of stories in John F. Carr's small press relaunch of that same War World series.

Not wanting to clutter up the Geek Love discussion thread with digressions, but: what was the Analog story you referred to?

So what did you think of Bujold's newest book? Fun, but why does Baen have to have such bad covers?
