Wow, last post was September. I've been writing furiously on my autobiography of Mathew Fontaine Maury. I'm doing a proof of the entire skeleton at present. I have some fleshing out on the times part of the life and times, which requires me to do more research.
Thanks to Berthold Gambrel who has been a great friend and has given some good advice after reading portions of the book.
Berthold did a review of Isaac Asimov's Foundation today. Did it ever bring back memories. Asimov was a giant in my life. I read the Foundation Trilogy in 9th grade, a year after Lord of the Rings.
I read everything I could get my hands on of him at used bookstores, Science Fiction Book Club, Isaac Asimov's essays on science in Amazing Science Fiction magazine, and libraries. I subscribed to the Isaac Asimov magazine. I've barely scratched the surface of his prodigious writing well into the grumpy old man stage.
