About the Author







\psfig{file=ssr1.eps,width=2.5in}







Stephen Richardson is a fourth year interdisciplinary student at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, Massachusetts. His major is a strange cross-breed of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, reflecting his strong interest in both fields.

Steve is an active member in the WPI theatre community, having held many production positions during his undergraduate college career. In addition to direct involvement in theatre productions, he has served two years as technical director for the college's audio and lighting group, and one year as business manager for the college's cast of Alpha Psi Omega (the national theatre honor fraternity).

In addition to being a full-time geek, Steve also enjoys some artistic ventures, such as music and literature. This book is his first foray into writing a substantial work.

Steve may be contacted by email at: prefect@gweep.net.
