Science Fiction and Me
While I make a living out of nonfiction, I sometimes
consider myself to truly be a science fiction writer who just
moonlights in the real world. Those of you who have the
affliction know I mean. You don't choose to become an sf writer. You
have to be -- because you just think that way.
The Past 40 Years of Living in the Future
I've been around the sf world for about forty years now. I've been a
fan, an academic, a reviewer and critic, and a short story writer,
more or less in that order, although the phases never had nice
Here's a brief summary of my writings in the field of f&sf. I have links
to all the web sites of magazines that have carried my fiction, although only a couple have the actual story posted on the site.

The Writers' Bloc column
I'm also a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of

matters related to sf, sf writing, and sf writers.

I write a column,
Writers' Bloc, in almost every issue of the SFWA Bulletin.
You can find the most recent columns at my new Writers Block columns page.
Book and Magazine Reviews
I have an archive of the reviews of books and magazines that are stored on my computer, most of them first appearing in Tangent, either as a magazine or online.
I added a new page of Reviews to the site. They are still interesting looks at an era of f&sf.
