It's just what it says on the tin: movies with some element of realism, some parsimonious narrative shred of the numinous, the impossible, the beguilingly made-up. Planets uninhabited and otherwise, fairies, space marines, time travel, wayward otherworldly machines, and the reality-bending light-out-of-darkness of every universe. And, perhaps, a little adventure and romance, if our voyage permits.

So John, tell us about yourself.I grew up in the Maryland countryside in a little town whose claim to fame is it was the capital - for a single day - when President James Madison stayed in the postmaster’s house on Aug. 26, 1814 while the British invaded Washington. That’s probably why I’ve always been interested in local history.
