About meI'm a doctoral student in literature and teaching assistant at the University of Connecticut, studying the depiction of science & technology in literature. Hopefully someday I'll write my dissertation, but that's a ways off. I'm married to fellow LTer Hayley.

I'm also a barely published author; with my secret writing partner Michael Schuster, I have published or will publish five pieces of Star Trek fiction:
- the electronic novella S.C.E. #62: What's Past, Book Two: The Future Begins
- two short stories in The Next Generation: The Sky's the Limit, titled "Meet with Triumph and Disaster" and "Trust Yourself When All Men Doubt You"
- the short novel The Tears of Eridanus, in the collection Myriad Universes: Shattered Light
- the full-length original series novel A Choice of Catastrophes

Flying solo, I've got one other fiction credit:
- the short story "Frank Reade Jr.'s Electric Time Canoe; or, The Search for the Origins of Steampunk: A Remarkable Adventure in Time and Empire", in the anthology Wildthyme in Purple

I've also two academic publications to my name:
- "The War of the Worlds in the Boston Post and the Rise of American Imperialism: 'Let Mars Fire.'" English Literature in Transition 53.4 (2010): 387-412.
- "Space Travel in Science Fiction." Sense of Wonder: A Century of Science Fiction. Ed. Leigh Ronald Grossman. Rockville, MD: Wildside, 2011. 312-14.
- "Observing Observation: The Ethical Investigator in Elizabeth Gaskell's Wives and Daughters." Gaskell Journal 27 (2013): 88-107.

About my libraryIt's a lot of tie-in fiction. Since 1999, I've bought almost every Star Trek book as it's come out, and the vast majority of Star Wars books as well. With Doctor Who, I'm much more picky and choosy because they're so dang expensive over here! Unfortunately, the ones I tend to pick and choose are the expensive ones!

I'm trying to expand my general sf and general literature reading, but it's hard to do when I can scarcely afford what I already do buy. I typically allow myself to visit the used bookstore and splurge at irregular intervals.
