Hi,

I've been an avid reader of sf my whole life, and am especially fond of science in my science fiction, but also like the sub-genres sometimes known as "literary sf" and "alternate history". It is probably safe to say I have already read a large portion of the body of available science fiction. I don't exclude other things, also reading fiction and literature, non-fiction, fantasy, plays. I'm willing to give almost anything a try. (Well, ok, my one attempt at a romance novel did not reach page 10), Professionally, I am a recently retired biomedical engineer, who worked in the field of magnetic resonance imaging.

Gelegentlich lese ich auf Deutsch. Meine Kenntnisse der deutschen Sprache ist nicht sehr gut. Aber ich kann verstehen und kann verstanden werden. Ich suche Bücher von Science Fiction Autoren, die nicht auf Englisch übersetzt haben sein (Wolfgang Jeschke, Andreas Eschbach, usw).

Note that my currently active bookcrossing username is TomHl2.

Also, shortly after bookcrossing started, I created two bookcrossing projects with their own bookshelves named RayBradburyProj and PewaukeeProj. I no longer do anything with them, but they continue to exist.
