When I was a child, I was mesmerized by science fiction, and not the "respectable" kind; I devoured tales of bug-eyed monsters, space ships and perilous adventures voraciously and indiscriminately. My tastes are somewhat different now, but what most appeals to me about language, literature and teaching is experiencing and sharing the powerful adventure of entering an unknown world, and of bringing to life in words the worlds each of us has within us.
