My mother gave me a science fiction paperback when I was about ten years old. I’ve been consuming books at an average of one a week, ever since.

Over the years, I’ve been inspired by many people. Here’s just a few of them. I’m sure I’ll remember others after I post this.


Stewart Brand

Ray Kurzweil

Peter Diamandis

Sir Tim Berners-Lee

K. Eric Drexler

Gerard K. O’Neill

Elon Musk

Alvin Toffler


Robert Heinlein

Jerry Pournelle

John Ringo

David Weber

Anne McCaffrey

Larry Niven

Neal Stephenson

Ernest Hemingway

George Orwell


Vaughn Bode’

Frank Frazetta

If you don’t recognize a name, I would suggest you look them up and enjoy some of their works. You may or may not like them, but they will make you think.
