Bewildering Stories biography

I was born in 1940 and am still alive. I was married in 1964 and am still married to the same woman. I have two daughters and a grandson.

I have a B.A. in history, a B.D. in religion, and a B.S. in math. I once had a computer science professor tell me he thought my programming in 360 assembler with a ball-point pen was “damned arrogant.”

I had a somewhat checkered career, not the rich Scotch plaid of some; more like that of an octopus swimming over a chessboard. I am a fugitive from the Southern Baptist ministry. I have taught high school, operated computers and programmed them. I spent four summers in a theme park, followed by five years bagging and carting out groceries at Ukrop’s.

I had a couple of stories published in Mensa newsletters and a magazine. I actually got paid for a story, “Potato Dreams,” August, 1998) for the second issue of Altair.
