My name is Hank and my screen name is really from my SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) persona Cleireac of Inisliath, an 11th c. Irish monk.
In addition to medieval history, I also tend to geek out over SF, Fantasy, and pulp-era adventure.
Loved the original Star Wars trilogy (not so much the prequels), and am only slightly fluent in Star Trek. I'm conversant in Battlestar Galactica (both incarnations), and just barely conversant in Dr. Who (any series). I'm also somewhat conversant in comic books.
I role play (pen and paper) when I can, my favorite rpg being Risus: The Anything RPG by S. John Ross. I have played AD&D (1e), Gamma World, Star Frontiers, Car Wars, GURPS, and Pathfinder.
I have been gravitating more toward secret history and conspiracy theory-type fiction (thanks to Kenneth Hite)
My all-time favorite movies are Fritz Lang's Metropolis and The Princess Bride, followed by Big Trouble in Little China and the Thin Man series
Currently, I enjoy:
Fact or Faked
Brad Meltzer's Decoded
I also enjoy classic old-time radio series, like The Shadow, The Voyage of the Scarlet Queen (which I believe was an influence on Star Trek TOS), The Adventures of Rocky Jordan and Chandu, the Magician.
I've recently become reacquainted and enamored with the Max Headroom television series from 1987.
I hold a BA in Radio/Television/Film and am ordained, but for the last few years have been working for my denomination in an administrative capacity.
There you go. Do with the info what you will.
