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.
