Jacob Hall

Biography

I've read science fiction and fantasy since my early teens. I even taught myself speed reading at the age of fourteen so I could "consume" more science fiction. For many years of my life, I read a complete book a day.

It's only recently that I've come to realize how much of my education was dependent upon science fiction from the political/economic insights of Asimov's Foundation Trilogy to the hard science fiction that laid the groundwork for a subsequent degree in math and physics.

I love the optimism of Star Trek and the weirdness of Zelazny. I hope to add some of both to my books.
