I seem to be one of those "hub" people -- I know a lot of folks, and a lot of folks know me. (Hub people are the duct-tape that keeps the "6 degrees" thing down to 6; without them, the number would be a lot higher.) I've been involved in lasers since the late 1960s; in pottery & ceramics since late 1995; in music since I was a small child; and in the Science Fiction and Fantasy field in one way or another (mostly as a fan, but occasionally as a proofreader or in some other semiprofessional capacity) since 1969. I have one published story, in an anthology called Interfictions. I have a good stiff case of ADHD, and partly as a result of that I have too many interests, only a few of which are presented in the list here.
