Why do you want to join this group?

I don't know anyone out here who reads the stuff I read, and it's so much fun to talk to people about your favorite Fantasy/SF novels. I've never actually been in a book club before, but I've always wanted to be. So here I am!

What is your favorite SFF book?

I'll pick something old and something, well... not so old. Alduous Huxley's "Brave New World," and Stephen King's "Dark Tower" books. King is one of my faves. I also grew up on R.A. Salvatore, though I haven't read his newer stuff.

How often would you like to meet?

At least monthly. Maybe more?

Tell us a little bit about yourself...

I work in high voltage electrical transmission operations (not quite as exciting as it sounds, but I like it). I'm a single dad of 3 growing nerds (ages 7, 8, and 10), and I'm currently trying to find balance (for myself AND my kids) between inside fun (reading, Netflix, video games) and outside fun (hiking, running, sports). I've been described as a pensive goofball, which I consider a compliment.


I grew up in Alaska, spent 8 years in the Navy, and I have degrees in English and Engineering. I moved to CT a couple years ago, I'm 32, and I'm looking to meet new people and make some friends along the way. I'm a lover of all things nerdy.
