Having taught myself to read by age three, I wandered into my father's library of Ace doubles and fell into the clutches of the likes of Wells, Verne, Asimov, Bradbury and Clarke. My brain hopelessly twisted, I grew up wondering why there were no steam-powered dirigibles; and if a Hudson engine pull 18 passenger cars at 125 mph in 1939, why there are no nuclear trains in 2010. And can you lift a Carbon-Graphite ship's hull with steam powered props and several parachutes?
