Bewildering Stories biography

I have been an avid reader ever since I learned how to read, without limiting myself to any genre. I stumbled into SF fandom through a friend of a friend who coaxed us into attending the 1990 SF Worldcon in The Hague, Netherlands. Since then I’ve been to various cons and ended up as contributing member of an Amateur Press Association (APA) named DAPPER, for whose limited audience I started writing a serial and various short stories.

In the real world, I hold a degree in translating and get to work occasionally for the police as well as courts of law. Since translating doesn’t produce enough income to feed myself, I am working a regular office job during day time. Besides reading, I enjoy travelling, photography and languages. I live in Fürth, Germany.
