I have some good stories yet to tell.
I started writing seriously about 1960, at the fairly advanced age of 30.
I wouldn't like to just do one story or one type of stories all the time.
The Berserkers have been with me for about forty years, and we're not done yet.
Research is of considerable importance in certain fields, such as science and history.
There's a big overlap with the people you meet at the fantasy and science fiction cons.
The same tools that make any writer good, plus a cheerful willingness to suspend belief.
Mysteries I read for fun, so I will probably never write one, for fear of spoiling the fun.
Probably all the books I've ever written have been efforts to define the boundaries of humanity.
At this stage, my chief professional goal is simply to keep on writing and making a living at it.
