I started out in the US as a registered alien because I arrived in a ship and spoke Russian at home. Now I often pass for a local, but I get excited about any aliens, even mere bacteria from Mars.

many anonymous people to troll through the posted works-in-progress can
be problematic. I have vague plans of starting a small online
writers' group myself (less than 12 people or so). If you
think you might be interested, please contact me.

is in Los Angeles. 23-27 August. It's in my backyard, mere
hours away by Improbability Drive. Barring eddies in
the space-time continuum, I'll be there.
