My Bio
I am a retired, middle-aged computer professional living on the East Coast of the United States. Science Fiction and Fantasy literature has fascinated me for half a century. In my teens, my Dad gave me his collection of 1940s and ‘50s Sci-Fi, and I’ve been seriously hooked ever since.

Q: Okay, What's Up with that Screen Name?
A: Well, that's best answered with two long stories:

Q: Why Bear?
A: In the early 1970s, my brother and I were wrapped up in the Citizen's Band (CB) radio craze. My 'handle' was 'Grizzly Bear', because it suited my size and personality.

Q: So, What is a Perfesser?
A: In a previous career, I worked as a Security Officer in some nasty places. A truck driver came in one day and asked for 'The Perfesser'. Excuse me? Apparently I was the only member of the guard force who had completed High School, let alone had two years of college. The nickname stuck, and years later, a friend combined the two. For five years working in a Nuclear Power station, my hardhat read 'Perfesser Bear' instead of my given name. Some people had no idea it wasn't my real name.
Thank you for that, Lux. Rest in peace.

Like my work? Buy me a Ko-fi!

YuliaLeonovich (https://www.deviantart.com/yulialeonovich) is an artist and crafter I started following here on DeviantART and on another site recently. Usually, her creations bring a brief smile to my face, then I move on to the next image in my inbox. Not today, though. This image brought such terror to my heart and ice to my soul that I could only stop and stare. It as if Cthulhu himself dredged his earthly form from the depths in which He dwells and shook is tentacles in my face. Click, click if you dare, that link above. But blame me not, if you are condemned to wander the earth forever as a hollow-eyed dispirited ghoul.
Working on a new story and fending off writer's block. More "Furry" stuff -- a couple of canines working in the Human world don't hit it off the best...

Perfesser Bear: Social Justice Warrior!

Perfesser Bear: Social Justice Warrior!

I try to keep my politics out of my personal life, and I try to keep my personal life out of my public persona. Heck, I don't think anyone knows for sure who Perfesser Bear really is. For various reasons I need to keep the online entity separate from my real-world identity. You think I'm an aging, male, former-programmer about 6'4" and 340 pounds -- but that's 'Perfesser Bear', not his author. Truth is, I'm not even really a Grizzly. People confuse the character with the playwright. So now, some deviant (and I use that word advisedly) on DeviantART has decided they know who I am and branded me as something else that I am not.

I am! I sat on top of a mountain and watched truck trailers that weren't going anywhere...
