      9. Topics of importance to you: Cultural, racial, sexual diversity
      and
      complex world building in speculative fiction
      10. Your views on how people of color are depicted in Speculative
      Fiction:
      Recently, my favorite writers (see above) have made great strides in
      featuring believable people of color in their fiction but much more
      can be
      done!
      11. Your own published works, if any:
      Co author of Martial Arts Movies: from Bruce Lee to the Ninjas with
      Richard
      Meyers and Bill and Karen Palmer.

      13. Your Speculative Fiction Pet Peeves: too many media tie-ins
      drowning
      out original work on store bookshelves.

      listgroups.
      15. Anything else you think is important:
      Open, questing, inquiring minds, educating people to be tolerant of
      diversity in all forms, preserving and conserving the environment and
      exploring space to reach the stars.
