While I can’t choose just one book, my favorite genres are hard science-fiction and European Military History.  Two of my favorite books from those genres, however, are The Forever War, by sci-fi master Joe Halderman, and Empires of the Sea: the Siege of Malta and the Contest for the Center of the World by Roger Crowley.

Favorite Weekend Activity

Working on restoring classic cars and playing weekend gigs with my band.
