John G. Cramer divides his time among writing science fiction and science fact, experimenting with quantum optics, teaching physics, consulting with NASA, and zooming off to CERN for another terabyte of data. In their spare time, he and his wife Pauline compete in AKC agility trials with their two Shetland Sheepdogs.
As a science writer, he contributes a bimonthly science-fact column, “The Alternate View,” to Analog Science Fiction and Fact magazine. A Houston native, he now lives in Seattle where he is Professor Emeritus of Physics at the University of Washington. At his retirement, to his delight, his colleagues presented him with a two-day physics seminar.
