`Marge Piercy! What an enlightened young man you are!' - a stranger in a Boston T station. She later confessed
that she was a writer herself, and that felt she had `outgrown'
Marge Piercy lately.
`On Wednesdays when the sky is blue
And I have nothing else to do
I sometimes wonder if it's true
That who is what and what is who.'
- A. A. Milne
Besides this page, you should definitely check out
my reading list - books I'm reading, have read recently, or particularly recommend.
Among other things, I read science fiction. Among my favourite
I like some Heinlein, too, but find I have to work too hard at
suspention of disbelief on his later stuff. (See my
Politics page for why.) As mentioned on my
Education page, I was an avid participant in
Storyreading in college - a group of people who get together weekly for
childrens' stories, milk and cookies, bad puns, and backrubs -,
and I occasionally make it to the Boston Storyreading.
