Om migI'm a physicist/programmer working for a small research and development company in Massachusetts. I was born and grew up in Pine Bluff, Arkansas and graduated from the University of Texas at Austin. A dog lover and book lover, I can often be found walking my dog around Willard's Woods in Lexington while reading a book.

Oh, and that dog up there in the corner. That's my new dog Dante relaxing at day care. It was a hot day, so he was hanging out by the pool in the shade.

Om mitt bibliotekMy library has been growing for years and reflects my constantly shifting tastes and interests.

Books are judged on a relative scale according to their ambitions. A cheap pulp novel may score higher than a classic simply because it set its sights so low. If I don't judge books this way, every thing would be one or two stars. Three stars basically means that the book was an enjoyable way to spend some time, but offered nothing of any value.

Some books may lack a rating because I read them so long ago that I don't feel that I can adequately judge them without a second read. There are a lot of old science fiction books in my library that I read as a teenager...Arthur C. Clarke comes to mind. These books may be rated despite their age because my memories of them are so strong. However, bear in mind that they are the ratings of a teenage mind at best. If I reread them today, they would probably score very differently. I prefer to keep my less cynical childhood memories of these books.

I've been working on a list of texts for those interested in learning about the Russian Front during World War II.
