Aeneas - aged 30 - Cincinnati, OH
I use this ID because it is the same one I use on wotmania.net.
I work in a shop, with an eye towards the engineering department, of a company that deals in industrial hydraulics.
I have been reading sci-fi since High School. I was one of the few who actually enjoyed 1984 and Childhood's End. I then skipped a few years then got really into the Star Wars books before the Special Editions were released. I read 80 of the books and was completely up to date until over a year ago when I gave them all to my cousin so he would stop re-reading Harry Potter and Narnia
I have since moved on to more exciting realms. Current favorites include George Martin, R. Scott Bakker, any Terry Pratchett, Dan Simmons, Neal Stephenson, Robert Jordan, Orson Scott Card, etc. I watch Lost, and The 4400, and World Cup soccer (football, whatever).
I am in the Deep Space Nine camp for best Trek series.
I'm not sure how I found this site and forum, but I admit I have rarely posted
I'm not usually a big poster. I have been a member of the Other Fantasy section of Wotmania for a long time now, maybe 6-7 years and have had tonds of great recommendations from them. I also post fairly rarely there.
As I have gotten more into poker and outdoor activities, I have been reading less this year than any of the last 5 previous ones. I am currently on The Wizard by Gene Wolfe and I have very mixed feelings about the series right now. I have also started season 1 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
I majored in Aerospace Engineering so that puts me in the "nerd as Sci-Fi/Fantasy reader" category....which I am completely OK with!
