About Paradox & Spike

In Second Life, I’m Paradox Olbers.  Currently, I’m owner/manager of the Spindrift island Space Gallery, a SciLands science Senator & SciLands Council member, an International Spaceflight Museum planner & head of operations, a NASA SL CoLab manager, a MICA Advisory Council member, and a curator for the IAAA astrnomical art wing at SpinSpace Gallery.

In RL [real life], I’m Bruce ‘Spike’ MacPhee, onetime owner/manager of Science Fantasy sf Bookstore in Harvard Square, Cambridge MA from 1977 to 1989.  I also worked part-time for Pandemonium Books sf store in Cambridge for a decade from 1995 to 2004.  Everytime I run into a former loyal customer, I always like to thank you for your store support. Say hi!

Keep up with my personal and SL lives with this blog.  I have another blog called Spindrift Island for news of Spindrift and the SciLands science continent in Second Life.  I also blog for the International Spaceflight Museum.

My preferences in science fiction run to hard science stories of ideas in astronomy, cosmology, physics, and time travel, but I’ve enjoyed thousands of others, too.

    Hey Spike, this is Chris, former “British guy in Residence” at Pandemonium, now back in the UK. Tyler passed on the address of your blog so I thought I’d say hi and find out how you’re doing.

    What a great site and resource. I’d like to think I met you in person, in Cambridge, back in the day!
