I've gotten away from reading much in the way of SF over the last few decades. Hard-boiled PI stuff is more to my liking. And yes, I do not read legal fiction; why the hell would I want to read about my own field for fun is beyond me. Reading fiction is escapism.

But having said that, I stumbled over the blog "I Work on a Starship". It is very good stuff and if you like technical-type SF, you will not be disappointed, though you do have to go to her home blog, click on the "I work on a starship" tag, and page back to November of last year to get to the beginning. At least I think it is the beginning.

Hopefully, there will be a book someday.

Roberta, you have a real talent for techie=type fiction. I would urge you to try to publish it, if you can stand the self-abashed-promotion that it takes (see larry Correia of Monster Hunter International).
