Why are you reading this?
If you know me, then you know far more than I can put in this limited space; odds are good that you even know things that I don't remember. If you don't know me, a lot of what I talk about will have limited context for you. I have many interests and reasons for reading what others post, but far fewer for sharing. My posts include random thoughts, shreds of fiction, scenes out of context, muddy millieau, sometimes bits of theory, history, and academic bitching. My more frequent rants of late tend to focus on my PhD studies/research, including: popularization of science, fear of science, social criticism in science fiction, and cultural studies. I recently attended the International Conference for the fantastic in the Arts and found that what I love, question, and geek about does have a place in academia and, in the greater context, a place in drawing the tough bits from the ribs of modern culture.

As a former Air Force (US) brat, while I've never served, I have lived in Vermont, NY, SC, MD, VA, Iceland and Germany. I most recently lived in Michigan while completing my PhD coursework, but I have returned to Richmond, Virgina and am now working on my dissertation.
