Welcome to my home page, permanently under construction.

Who am I (non-SF)

I'm a computer programmer, currently freelancing after leaving the City University of New York, where I worked for about 20 years. I specialized in non-specialization, mostly network design for the last few years.

SF stuff

I've been involved in SF fandom for over 35 years. I've been to more than 600 cons, and worked on about a third of them. I'm working on a lot of Worldcons, as well as a number of regional cons.

I'm also a member of clubs in a number of cities, including NESFA (Boston), OSFCI (Portland, OR), FACT (Austin, TX), and SCIFI (Los Angeles).

I'm also a member of MCFI (Boston), which ran the Worldcon in 2004.

I've edited four books (three still in print) for NESFA Press.

I've added a page of links to things I find interesting or useful. You can probably figure out more about me by just looking at them than by most of the other things I can tell you.

This page is located on Panix, an incredibly well run ISP in New York, and one of the few to provide Unix shell accounts.

I'll be adding more stuff later.

"World Science Fiction Society", "WSFS", "World Science Fiction Convention", "Worldcon", "NASFiC", "Hugo Award", and the distinctive design of the Hugo Award Rocket are service marks of the World Science Fiction Society, an unincorporated literary society.
