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

Tolkien (I know, right? He's a wildcard but I think the chap's got talent.) and Neil Gaiman. Depending on the limits of the fantasy genre, I'd also throw in Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. As far as science fiction goes, if it counts, I read War of the Worlds and Time Machine so much as a kid that I forgot the copies on my bookshelf belonged to the library and, well, kind of stole them. (I paid the fines though... years later. Still, no rap sheet here.) So, yeah, HG Wells.

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

The Magicians by Lev Grossman. Entertaining but I don't know if I'd recommend it. "Trite" comes to mind.

How often would you like to meet?

Monthly works for me

Where in the Houston area would you like to meet?

Inner loop (my druthers = Heights, Montrose, or Upper Kirby) but, really, wherever is good.

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

coffee shop or quiet bar

Introduction

I'm a tech writer -- an irksomely practical profession -- but my heart lies with speculative fiction.
