Introduction I'm the publisher/editor/webmaster of Locus Online, which I launched in 1997 and which won the first-ever Hugo Award for Best Website in 2002. I also compile and maintain the Locus Index to Science Fiction Awards as part of the site. For Locus Magazine, I wrote short fiction reviews under the "Distillations" heading from 1989 through 2001. I have a BA in math from UCLA, and have worked, Dilbertesque fashion, for a certain large aerospace concern in southern California for over 20 years.
