About the Author
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'.
