My first memories are of watching the Lone Ranger and JFK's funeral on TV. I discovered Heinlein in my middle school library, and have been avidly consuming SF and fantasy, sometimes to the detriment of my grades and social life, since then. I graduated from East Lansing High School, Michigan, in 1977, but my taste in music didn't crystallize until 1985 when I found myself in Los Angeles, recruited to write a Japanese language parser after spending a year in Japan working for Sumitomo Electric.

Elena,
I'll plan on checking out Carol's review of _The Detective_. No matter how lazy and discontinuous a reviewer you are, I doubt you are worse than I am. While I do occasionally comment on a book, the vast majority of the time it's on my wiki.
And thanks on the profile image! I've been using it for years. Luckily it doesn't really need much of an update.
Fritz.


Elena C. Hey Fritz! Thanks for the message & friend request. I'm an extremely lazy discontinuous reviewer to be honest, and - alas! no review of The Detective is forthcoming, but you could always check out Carol's - I see she's a common friend, and her review of the book is spot on, like usual.

Looking forward to see you around on GR :)
P.S. Great profile pic!

Fritz Freiheit Hi back, Iori!
Iori wrote: "Hi Fritz thanks for adding me, oh and I see you have wrote books I didn't read yet!"
I saw your conversation with Niall Teasdale's on his review of _So Not a Hero_ and noted that you read superhero fiction, so I thought I would engage.

Iori Hi Fritz thanks for adding me, oh and I see you have wrote books I didn't read yet!
