Something about yourself
I love almost all genres of writing, from classics to mystery to the occasional bubblegum romance, but the books on my shelves consist mainly of speculative fiction (including hard sf & a sprinkling of fantasy) and good children's and young adult books, especially that of the fantastic variety. Since childhood, I've wanted to be a writer, but I seem to lack the drive, so I've learned to sublimate that desire in my job (I'm a book editor) and in proselytizing others to read some of my favorite fiction. I think it's a shame that so many people see "science fiction" on a book and immediately put it down because they assume it's space opera. The truth is, in our fast-changing world, modern sf writers' speculations about possible futures, alternate histories, and the potentialities and limitations of human nature, can tell us so much about ourselves and our world. And, of course, it's simply FUN.
