Think of these as books on the shelves...Bio, bibliography, and notables among my past novels ,as well as articles, working notes, systematic lists, and other odd things I've created, both in research and in answer to questions.

Want to know where one of my books fits in the scheme of things? Where you want to be is The Universes.

ALLIANCE-UNION CHRONOLOGY: Webfriend Tom Dell'Aringa reworked these files into far more elegant form.  These won't give away any books: they're my initial vision of the bridge between space travel as we know it and the foundation of the star-faring civilization, year by year and ship-call by ship-call. I worked this whole thing out on my faithful 48-k Atari, back in those days, using real stars, and real distances, and amazingly, it still works pretty well.

...None of which matters to a young man they left behind in the War years...or to the ship's youth, who've lived time-dilated lives while he lived ashore.

Note: two fast-moving reviewers have concluded this is a y/a novel, perhaps because the protagonists are young. The writer doesn't think so. It's a piece of the Alliance-Union universe, and teens, in the case of teens who've lived  40 time-dilated years, are a fairly different piece of work, psychologically speaking. I definitely call that science fiction---not y/a.
