Dragon 329er




Georgine the Dragon tolerated Humans, generally ignored Elves stayed out of the way of trolls (wise policy for anybody -- even other trolls).  Goergine's favorite person was Irulana, a lesser princess and a great pilot who led her dragon to interesting places and wonderful flights.  It might have been an ideal dragon's life except for some of the characters that Irulana got them mixed up with. 


Nobody asked Patrick White's permission to sign him onto the crew of a multi-generation ship to the stars. His parents were too busy with departure preparations to even think about such legal niceties. His older sister just didn't care about little brothers. By the time he came of legal age, Earth's Sol appeared as a remote and dim speck among thousands of similar stars.

Peter L. Manly was raised in the American Midwest in the tradition of Tom Sawyer. He graduated from Syracuse University in Physics and served in the United States Air Force as a research officer, followed by tours with NASA and various aerospace contractors. He puts bread (and peanut butter) on the table by writing nonfiction about astronomy, computers and aviation. See the books Unusual Telescopes (ISBN 0 521 38200 9) and The 20-Cm Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope (ISBN 0 521 43360 6) published by Cambridge University Press.

During the day he finds interesting airplanes to fly in the clear skies of the Southwest. At night he can be found at the telescope (and most nights in Arizona are clear). He also generates hard core science fiction and a bit of fantasy. He is associated with seven computers and a thirty-year-old VW Microbus. On weekends he restores antique airplanes and bores great, smoking, vibrating holes in the sky with WW II fighters.  He has flown over 140 different types of aircraft from ultralights to jumbo jets including supersonic types and has a "9 G" pin in the F-16D Falcon. Manly enjoys feedback to or
