About the Author

I’m an author, activist, and information technologist. I hail from Chicago, but my family relocated to the Bay Area in 1970 so I’ve spent most of my life in California. I graduated from UC Berkeley in 1982 with a degree in English. Since 2007 I’ve supported research computing on the campus through my work in the university’s information technology division. I write, organize as a grassroots activist, and study Tai Chi Chuan in Berkeley, California.

This author has an ability to describe something that has happened to all of us (the cut thumb) in such a way that it's as if it's the first time it's ever happened. What a gift to be able to take a description of a bandaid and turn it into a complete picture of a man's life ('black with sweat-salt and country dust'). I also loved the details of the birds - I really felt like I knew this place, this life. I've had the great fortune to read other works by this author and this is just a taste of what he can do!

This is a good story - it has a nice sense of creepy inevitability about it. I would have liked to know more about the roots of the main character's feelings, though I think his personality itself does a good part of the job. The writing is very good, but sometimes I thought the language was unnecessarily complex.

Martin’s Pond is a thought-provoking and beautifully written story. Martin is an intriguing character, memorable and complex enough that after reading this I’d love to see him in a full-length novel. I enjoyed being immersed in the author’s rich descriptions of the landscape where this wonderfully dark story takes place.

Excellent short. Loved it.

This short story reminds me so much of myself that I find it hard to review it. I too have special places that most folks don't know about. However, when the space is discovered, the writer takes a different turn. I liked this book as I felt the character development was so very real and the book so nicely written.
