I've been an avid reader of SF my whole life, and am especially fond of science in my science fiction, but also favor the sub-genre sometimes known as "literary SF" and most other varieties of speculative fiction. I don't exclude other things, also reading mainstream fiction and literature, non-fiction, drama, etc. I'm willing to give almost anything a try, once in a while. Professionally, I am a retired biomedical engineer, who worked in the field of magnetic resonance imaging. Personally, I'm married to a Unitarian Universalist parish minister, and we have two adult children.
Gelegentlich lese ich auf Deutsch. Meine Kenntnisse der deutschen Sprache ist nicht sehr gut. Aber ich kann verstehen und verstanden werden. Ich suche science-fiction Bücher, die nicht auf Englisch übersetzt wurden (Wolfgang Jeschke, Andreas Eschbach, usw).
I have been a bookcrosser since 2003, originally with the username of TomHl. When I moved from Pewaukee, Wisconsin to Beaufort, South Carolina in February 2017, I created a new username TomHl2, rather than cause all my bookcrossing activities over 14 years to be edited as if they took place in South Carolina. TomHl2 is my currently active username.
Probably it is also worth telling you all that I read many books in ebook form, as advance reader copies, and from my local library - none of which appear on my bookcrossing bookshelf. My reviews on the goodreads platform are more representative of my overall reading.
