Who is your favorite Sci Fi and/or Fantasy Author(s)?

I've read the earliest D&D fiction from the early 80's, to some great dystopian fiction, to the best sci-fi has to offer. I don't have a favorite author, nor authors, but I do want to send a special shout out to Mr. Cline on "Ready Player One." Good game Sir...good game.

What book are you currently reading, and do you recommend it?

I became addicted to the "free" and cheap reads on my Nexus 7, using the Kindle app. So, I am currently reading a very good series by Hugh Howley. Anyone know it?

How often would you like to meet?

I am a father, and I work a lot of hours, so...once a month is about all I can offer up. Unless you bring sushi. Sushi changes everything...

Where in the Houston area would you like to meet?

I'm not saying I have PTSD. I AM saying that the drivers in Houston are only slightly better than Kuwaiti drivers. The city scares me (because of the drivers) and since I live in Hockley (west side of Houston, just west of Cypress)...I prefer anything within 30 minutes of there.

What do you consider to be an ideal setting? (ex. Coffee Shop, Bar, Someone's house, etc.)

I prefer a bookstore, coffee shop, or someone's house. My fourth and fifth choice would be the "Serenity" and/or anywhere in Piers Anthony's mind. His fiction may have impacted my pubescent years...


After 14 years of military service spanning three decades (the math is fuzzy, and I had a 7 year break!), I finally have the time to pursue my 6,417 interests. My favorite don't-get-dressed-so­-I-can-relax past time is reading. So here I am.
