My present focus is on short story writing. I've written some space dramas with philosophical themes, humorous pulp parodies, and even some sword and sorcery. I've published in some British-based anthologies, and my short story sci-fi thriller Robbery on Antares VI is available on Amazon. In a previous lifetime I worked for 30 years as an appellate lawyer, including the defense of several clients facing the death penalty in California. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my wife, Susanne, and our faithful cat Gladstone. My webpage can be found at RichardLRubin.com.
