34 years old (1972)


Short Story Writer





    Born in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1938, the middle child of Alfred and Margaret Carrington, I grew up in the suburban town of North Haven, graduating from North Haven High in 1956, getting bachelors and masters degrees in math from NYU and the University of Florida respectively and working as a computer programmer for Goddard Space Flight Center, the University of Florida, the Naval Telecommunications Command, Savannah River Ecology Lab, Westinghouse Corporation, and the Treasury Department of the United States, from which I retired in 2004. I have lived in Northampton, Massachusetts, since 2012.

    I have published two novels (Time's Fool and Down in the Barraque), about 40 short stories in science fiction, literary, and mens magazines (some of them collected in Annapolis to Andromeda), 3 songs, numerous book & record reviews, several articles, and even a short-lived column, as well as having 5 plays produced in Baltimore. My self-produced CDs, Songs Without Wisdom and Ancient Laughter, are available at CDBaby.

    My 6 1/2 month trip around the United States in 2015-2016 is chronicled in my This Moment blog.
