About meAn IT Man by day and amateur theologian by night, Don is a man of many interests. Over the years he has performed and taught improvisational comedy, drawn political cartoons, started several small businesses, taught bible studies, and is still working on several scifi/fantasy novels.
Don is fascinated with the love and joy that overflows from the Trinity and hopes to be united with his God and fellow man as the Messiah Jesus prayed in John 17:20-23.
About my libraryA latecomer to fiction, I am working my through a scifi and fantasy list compiled by Peter Sykes. You can find these at http://goo.gl/l7uKX and http://goo.gl/HUPbK.
I began tracking his lists in 2003, attempting to collect and read everything that has hit his list. Needless to say, I have a long way to go.
If my book ratings seem high, it is because I have been very particular about the titles I am reading-- for the most part, I am working my way down the list from top to bottom, though I stray from this from time to time. I do not have all the books on the list, but have about 80% from his scifi list and 50% from his fantasy list. A majority of the books I have read are Hugo or Nebula Nominees. Any book that has hit his list is tagged "short list" and in some cases I've included sequels. Books from his SciFi list are now tagged "SciFi 200"
I have also included some Hugo/Nebula/Locus/Campbell/Philip K Dick nominees and other books.
Favorite authorsDouglas Adams, David Brin, Orson Scott Card, Ted Dekker, Philip K. Dick, C. S. Lewis (Shared favorites)
