About the Author CLB at the Smithsonian

At the age of five and a half, I saw my first episode of Star Trek, believing it to be a show about a strange airplane that only flew at night.  As I continued watching, I discovered what those points of light in the sky really were.  This awakened a lifelong fascination with space, science and speculative fiction.  I devoured Asimov, Clarke, and books on astronomy and physics.  I often made up Trek-universe stories set a century after Kirk’s adventures (an idea years ahead of its time), but soon shifted to creating my own original universe.  I eventually realized I did this pretty well, and deluded myself into thinking I could make a career out of it.  So far, that delusion has been working out for me.
