    Neophyte writer of fiction -- working on my first effort, a utopian novel.

    Also a professor of political science, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, specializing in technological controversies such as drone weaponry, toxic chemicals, 3D printing, alternative energy, and (what I fear is) the coming age of androids.

    Books: The Future of Technological Civilization (academia.edu 2013, free downloadable e-book); The Policy-Making Process (Prentice Hall 1993); The Demise of Nuclear Energy (Yale 1989); Averting Catastrophe (U of California 1986); Too Hot to Handle (Yale 1983).

    Married to Nancy D. Campbell, professor of Science & Technology Studies, feminist theorist and historian of the science of drug addiction.

    Children biological, step-, and adopted: Grace (9), Isaac (13), Rebecca (40), Tony (48), David (50), and Rick (51).

    Co-founder of Shannon Farm, an alternative community in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia -- about to celebrate its 40th birthday, still intact against the odds.

    Family, houseplants, pinball machines, Dexter, detective novels, naps. Oh, and the tenuous future of human civilization.
