I've written sf and fantasy for publication since 1975...but I've written a lot longer than that. I have a background in Mediterranean archaeology, Latin, Greek, that sort of thing; my hobbies are travel, photography, planetary geology, physics, pond-building for koi...I run a marine tank, can plumb most anything, and I figure-skate.I believe in the future: I'm an optimist for good reason---I've studied a lot of history, in which, yes, there is climate change, and our species has been through it. We've never faced it fully armed with what we now know, and if we play our cards right, we'll use it as a technological springboard and carry on in very interesting ways.I also believe a writer owes a reader a book that has more than general despair to spread about: I write about clever, determined people who don't put up with situations, not for long, anyway: people who find solutions inspire me.My personal websites and blog: http://www.cherryh.comhttp://www.cherryh.com/WaveWithoutAShorehttp://www.closed-circle.net

I agree, for example, that we'd probably align in terms of what was 'fantasy' and what was 'science fiction' based on the rather limited selection of books you find on the shelves at my local Bertrand Bookstore in Lisbon (or Waterstones if you like in the UK; take your pick). Where my vision might d...

If you stick with the Foreigner series by CJ Cherryh for more than a few pages, you know that numbers are very, very important to the Atevi. And they have a strong preference for odd numbers, so tonight I can declare that I have finished the fortunate 9th book, the end of the 3rd trilogy in the sag...
