About the author
I left Hungary with a tooth brush and a PhD in Nuclear Physics, in 1988. The former was very useful but I could not use the latter without a security clearance. Some stations of my fast career in the USA have been: handyman, messenger, carpenter, computer repairman, programmer, harp player in a rock band, ski instructor, appraiser. To make the long story short, I kept my eyes open and my computer on, and I became an American writer.
The characters of the stories, including myself, are fictitious. Any resemblance to real people is accidental and I do not take responsibility for that. However, I take full responsibility if I could make you angry because your political stand is left or right of mine. If you are on my side, in the middle, send me a wink. I appreciate any comment, let it be as provoking as my writing.
