Extended Profile


I'm a science fiction addict but also read lots of other genres, but I'm never without a book, a true bookaholic. I'm also hooked on sudoku, solitaire, and a bunch of silly Facebook games. I live in San Diego. I've spent many years working in high-tech and am now semi-retired and teaching Statistics at the community college. Much less stress and more time to read! In the Myers-Briggs personality typing I'm an INFJ/INTJ hybrid. More info here

My released books don't necessarily represent my taste in books -- I buy a great many books just for the fun of releasing them. Check GoodReads for what I really do read.

I’m open to swaps, book requests, RABCK's, and friend requests. Can’t ship as much internationally as I used to, the postage is just too much.

Some of my favorite authors: John Varley, Spider Robinson, Charles De Lint, Robert Sawyer, Sheri Tepper, Lois McMaster Bujold, Barbara Kingsolver, Ann Patchett, T. Coraghessan Boyle, Alice Hoffman, Bill Bryson, Kurt Vonnegut, John Barnes, Frederick Pohl, David Brin, Joe Haldeman, Kim Stanley Robinson, Guy Gavriel Kay, Mary Doria Russell, Ray Bradbury, Margaret Atwood, Neal Stephenson, Orson Scott Card, Randy Wayne White, Ayn Rand, Abraham Verghese, Pat Conroy, David Sedaris, James Kirkwood, David Mitchell, Kate Atkinson, Chris Bohjalian ...

Your Result: Obsessive releaser
 
You release, release, release. Discretion is not your middlename anymore. Buying grocery's, going to the dentist, a sunny day in the park, on holiday; every step you take, you take a book to go with you to be released.
