Kent State PhD Begins

This is my second week in the English Literature PhD program at Kent State University, and I’m finding it challenging and exciting. I have a great deal of work in the program, but I’ll get back to SF posting as soon as I get caught up with everything. Expect a review of SF fandom movies like Free Enterprise soon (it’s for an upcoming segment on the Georgia Tech SF Radio Program on WREK).  Also, keep an eye out for a note about Ian McDonald’s latest novel, Brasyl.

Besides my biweekly excursions to Kent, I spend my time in Pittsburgh with my girlfriend, Laura.  She definitely makes the city bearable, but I don’t want to spend any longer here than is absolutely necessary.  That being said, I have to admit that I love “Pittsburgh salads” (essentially a salad topped with french fries).
