Author's word

Dear reader:

We offer you a few notes (oh my, you'll say, it's like a sales drone) on the works of (enough is enough!..) a SF author...

Stop it. Cut it short. Brevity is the soul of something, I forget what of...

But I'll have to say a few words, anyway.

First, I am glad there are so many people who derive pleasure out of a strange pursuit that reading science fiction certainly is. None of them can really explain why they do that, other than saying "tastes differ." Being a SF fan, I can only welcome their abundance. And twice so, being a SF author.

Second, I am happy to have this website, created by my diligent friends (if only I was as hardworking myself... no chance here). Many thanks to them.

Third, you can ask questions. I'll try to answer.

Finally, "don't shoot me, I am doing my best." How good "my best" is, is left to you to decide. This site certailnly will expand, and I hope that you'll like the new texts. The only thing left now is to write them.

Please consider my bow a running start. Wish me good luck. And I wish good luck to all of those who came here.

And, of course, happy reading!

The two most recent works, "Soft Landing" and "Year of the Lemming," are also considered solid successes.
