When I was a kid, about 8 yrs. old or so, I would lend at least 25 books at the school library for my summer break. At first my teachers shook their heads in disbelief and they were probably thinking to themselves: he is never going to finish all of those books. But coming back after the summer break, I was always able to give them a detailed review of every single book. Some of those books were trilogies such as Isaac Asimovs "Foundation-" series and "Ringworld."
I simply love books and though I like watching a movie just as much as everyone else, reading a book really is something else. By reading a book you construct pictures in your own mind instead of being served by a director.

Dave Freer is a South African Fisheries Scientist turned sf/fantasy author, who has settled on Flinders Island, Australia.
Freer writes from a wide experience of being in trouble in small boats, rough water and rickety cliffs. With that and aquatic invertebrates to provide bizarre biology, and South African socio-politics to provide an alien landscape, and an appalling sense of humour, he is well fitted to write humorous, action-filled sf, which is why more than half his work is alternate-history/fantasy. There is a kind of perverse logic about the man. He is married to Barbara, who combines her extreme brilliance with a tolerance of a mildly crazed husband (who can cook but whose head is in alternate worlds h ... read more
