I am a lifelong fan of science fiction, and 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 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 contributed to Tor's There Will Be War series, Baen's War World series, and John F. Carr's small press relaunch of that same War World series.  And I occasionally contribute to TOR.com.
