About the Author

George Pinneo, an Army brat, lived in 4 states and 8 different homes during WWII. He grew up in NW Ohio, graduating from Case Institute of Technology with a BSChE in 1959. His technical career spans 55 years of front-end wafer fab microelectronics, diode laser and hybrid manufacturing with a focus on glass-to-metal seals, fully hermetic design and manufacture.

He was the fourth founder of a successful article surveillance startup in Hollywood Fl. This entrepreneur loves the phrase: 'you can't do that!' and then does it! He holds 7 patents.

The Pinneos have seen parts of Canada, Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico and the Caribbean, the cities of the Hansa in Western Europe, New Zealand, Australia, South Korea and Tokyo, Japan.

At the age of 55 he earned a private pilot's certificate and built an all-metal, 2-seat experimental homebuilt airplane, which he has spent 19 years 'refining'.

Other hobbies include woodturning, sailing, canoeing, black powder cannon, hiking, jewelry making and of course, writing.

His notion of what constitutes 'good' SF includes solid engineering extrapolation. First contact interaction and non-human communication are prized. Although fantasy and magic can be entertaining, they do NOT work! They are fraudulent! Good SF should be uplifting and positive; it should teach new concepts and words. L. M. Bujold has shown SF can be romantic in her 'A Civil Campaign'.
