{{Image|HP at Desk -3.jpg|left|250px|In my rebuilt office in Tucson in 2009}}I was born in Bangor, Maine, in 1942, and attended Exeter, Stanford, and Harvard.  I graduated from Harvard in 1964 as a member of the class of 1963, having majored in English.  I then moved to Tahiti, where I lived for 23 years, working as a businessman in various companies that I helped found and as a minor writer of science fiction and mystery stories.  In 1988 I returned to the States to live and have been in Tucson, Arizona, since 1994.
My particular interests are old-time tennis (up until about the start of the Open Era in 1968), some branches of mystery stories and science fiction, food and cooking, and an eclectic selection of baseball players and writers and personalities such as [[Johnny Mize]], [[Evelyn Waugh]], [[John O'Hara]], and [[S.J. Perelman]].  I originated and wrote a number of lengthy Wikipedia articles, particularly those about [[Bill Tilden]] and [[Pancho Gonzales]], as well as many other old-time tennis players and British mystery writers such as [[Michael Gilbert]].

The Alms for Oblivion series
'''2. "Alms for Oblivion" Novel Sequence'''
The 10 novels cover the period 1945 to 1973 and centre on a group of upper and upper middle class characters, forming a [[novel sequence]], if a somewhat loosely structured one.  The early novels are robust satires of the English upper set of the mid 1950s, but the later tend to a more detached and philosophical tone, becoming concerned with the occult and supernatural, and including strange happenings.
The titles in ''Alms for Oblivion'' are:

Maybe, if I stay alive long enough (and Citizendium does too) and finish all 26 of the Condon books, I can do these one after the other?
