For those in London and victims of terrorism worldwide.

I am active in my local Unitarian Universalist Church. I like SF, but only specific kinds and authors (e.g. Sterling, Gibson, Egan, and Banks). I read a fair amount of nonfiction science. Also, those that examine the paranormal from a skeptical point of view. I worship at the feet of Thomas Pynchon - specifically for his masterpiece _Gravity's Rainbow_.

I have no wish list. I tend to buy or check out from the library what I wish to read. I don't have enough time to read random books. My only wish list items would be that S.R. Delaney's sequel to _The Stars in My Pocket Like Grains of Sand_ (titled _The Misery and Spendor of Cities, of Bodies_) would be published or that more complete gnostic gospels would be found and published and translated (i.e. religious work by early Christians that the Council of Nicea excluded from the Bible).

In Groucho Marx's words: "I would not join any club that would have me as a member."

I prefer to think my political/social views are progressive/populist. But if the label liberal fits then I've got to wear that bleeding heart.
