Introduction
A delightful blend of chimpanzee and bonobo, with just a soupçon of neanderthal. I live in Denver with my superstar poet wife, +Kathryn, and our goofy black dog, Huxley.

Aurora by Kim Stanley Robinson and
A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson.

A few of my favorite books: 

Cloud Atlas - David Mitchell
Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte
The Sparrow - Mary Doria Russell
I Should Be Extremely Happy In Your Company - Brian Hall
Alan Mendelsohn, the Boy from Mars - D. Pinkwater
Libra - Don DeLillo
A Confederacy of Dunces - John Kennedy Toole
The Dispossessed - Ursula K. Le Guin
Was - Geoff Ryman
The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood
To Kill A Mockingbird - Harper Lee
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time - Mark Haddon

A few of my interests:

Ending Slavery
and, in the words of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, "building a more just, verdant, and peaceful world."
