About This Site

Thanks for stopping by.

Chances are if you’ve found this web site it’s because you’ve heard of me through my writing for Sky &Telescope and SkyNews, or because of one of the books I’m associated with. And if you like that kind of thing, then I think you’ll enjoy what you find here — to a large extent it’ll be more of the same.

The great thing about a web page though is that I can get into a subject in depth without worrying about trying to fit it onto a limited number of pages. Not that I plan on abandoning the disciplined, to-the-point, style I’m known for, it’s just nice to be able to stretch out a bit and explore some territory that for one reason or another ends up on the proverbial cutting room floor. And because I’m interested in things besides astronomy, you’ll also find me digging into other subjects too.

I will be adding new items every few days, so stop by often. I hope that you’ll find the articles I post here interesting, informative, and even occasionally, provocative. My goal is to make this Web site a part of your routine and a place where you can find reliable information on subjects that interest you. Please drop me a line and let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see more (or even, less) of.

Lastly, using the links provided for purchasing your stuff from Amazon.com helps keep this site up and running. It doesn’t matter if you buy one of my books, or just a pair of socks — it all counts. And best of all, doing so costs you nothing. To directly link through to Amazon.com, click here. Canadian readers can use this link to go to Amazon.ca if preferred. Thanks!

Stay tuned, and enjoy!
