Ed is a 61-ish virologist and biotechnologist, formerly a Zambian and presently a South African.  He is into family, virology, biotechnology, science in general, science fiction in particular, photography, red wine, wearing loud shirts, 70s rock, blues and smooth jazz…and telling stories.  Sometimes, interesting ones.  And writing for his own amusement.

    I read something about you coming under attack for demeaning womanhood by writing a sci-fi story in which the female character goes shopping in multiple dimensions? Do I have that right? Oh, brother…where DOES it end? I can sympathize. I come under bizarre scrutiny myself in the American media, although I must admit, for nothing quite so brainless as THAT. If you’re bored to tears some evening and need something to put you straight to sleep, go to http://www.earthquakepredictors.com. There…I feel better leaving this. Cheers! David Nabhan

    Ed, where do you live?

    I think we could have a good chat.

    I, too, am a slave to science fiction – not all that unusual, but cometh now the unusual bit – my favourite SF fix is SHORT science fiction. I have made a story index of all the stories in my “library” – which means a few shelves, and lots of bundles and boxes. There are over 7 000 entries, and I keep buying them faster than I can read ’em.

    I smiled when I saw the pics of your anthologies – needless to say, I have some of the exact same books.

    Now I really could have sworn that I was the only one in South Africa with this highly idiosyncratic interest. Whenever I see people milling around the SF bookshelves, eight volume sagas are all they seem to be interested in. And I can’t read those – too lazy; also I do nearly all my reading very late at night, when 15 pages is probably all that’s going to get done before I fall asleep.

    We’re almost exactly the same age, too, so drop me a line.
