Hello,

I am a mid-40's father of two kids. I have a Phd in a social science and my day job is teaching undergraduates.

I have published many academic articles but never involving robots or aliens. Sadlly, I am afflicted with an ungovernable urge to write science fiction. Some of my favorite authors are Bujold and Banks. Indeed, I picked the pseudonym Oliver Buckram to be in there at the beginning of the alphabet along with Asimov, Clarke, etc. Outside of science fiction, I love Patrick O'Brian.

Right now I am writing short stories, mostly set in present day or near future. Someday I want to write space opera novels.

Ollie

Greetings
I feel your pain, although my affliction is attempting (very much a key word) to write epic fantasy.
I'm looking forward to reading and critiquing your work and your potential critiques of my own.

Welcome, oh writer to be. Time to have some fun and learn at the same time. And this place is great for both. Nice people too.


But in your list of "A" writers don't forget Asprin ... except he does fantasy not SF.

And as you look up be careful while wondering the treehouse you could bump into the unicorn. And She can be mean.


And watch out for an Aans wondering around, a robot or someone from the Foundation. They sometimes visit through that door that leds... elsewhere.
