Currently working on: A huge honking nonfiction book about the underlying mechanisms of story and myth, the contents of which are hinted at in my Star Wars Origins website. Also, though with glacial slowness, a CD of dance music.

Fave Television: My TV isn't connected anything but the DVD player, but I download Smallville, Daily Show, Colbert Report and Doctor Who. I adored Starblazers, Crest of the Stars, the first season of Land of the Lost, Tom's Baker's run on Dr. Who, Space: 1999 and especially Neon Genesis Evangelion. And I've still got a soft spot for Space Academy
