Informazioni su di meI am a 57 years old male, married with children ages 21, 19 and 16. I grew up in Southern California, went to college at the University of Chicago and graduate school at the University of California, Berkeley. After 9 years as President of the Alabama Symphony Orchestra in Birmingham, AL, I recently moved to Rochester, NY where I am President and CEO of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra.

I spent several years as a site administrator at the Internet Book List and I am a part owner of the Internet Book Database of Fiction, where I've moderated forums for Heather Gladney, John Marco, Jack McDevitt, Elizabeth Bear, and David B. Coe (our Steve Miller/Sharon Lee and Debra Doyle/James Macdonald forums never attracted any participation). I came over to Librarything over ten years ago looking for a site with more members and more potential.

My favorite authors in recent years have been J.G. Ballard, Theodore Sturgeon, Cordwainer Smith, James Tiptree, Jr., and Steven Erikson.

La mia bibliotecaOver the years I've read lots of just about everything (except horror and romance), encouraged at a young age by my English-teacher-turned-librarian mother. In my early teens I read mystery voraciously (especially Agatha Christie, Erle Stanley Gardner--I loved his A.A. Fair books--and Dick Francis) and westerns (just about everything by Louis L'Amour). Then I fell in love with the Lord of the Rings and got hooked on a bit of science fiction (the Foundation Trilogy, Dune, and a bit of Heinlein). Then came my years as an English major at the University of Chicago, where I set aside genre fiction for Literature and Drama and never really went back until my mother gave me the first three books of the Wheel of Time when I turned 32 (or so). Since then its been back to fantasy and especially science fiction with a vengeance.

Some taggage explanation: "elizabeth" are books that belong to my wife, "teens" are books that I read in my teens (location unknown), "mom" are books that I read in my teens which are presumably still on a shelf or in a box somewhere at my mom's house, and "returned" are books that have been returned to the library.

I recently added my fairly extensive library of recorded music.
