Welcome!‎ > ‎



About me: born and raised (very nicely) in England, I studied over there a bit then migrated to the United States and studied a bit more here, which allowed me, miraculously, to qualify for a job at Hudson County Community College in Jersey City, New Jersey. The folks there have let me teach reading, composition, creative writing, humanities and literature, including science fiction, for very nearly 30 years now. He must like the place, you might think, and it’s true. HCCC has lots of very nice students and colleagues, including my wife, the fabled Dr. Chanida (aka “The Missus”). In progenitor mode, I’ll also mention that two splendid daughters, their proud mates, and a brace of magnificent granddaughters enhance planetary locations  near and far.
