About Barry Gold

I am, among other things:
A computer programmer
who specialized in websites, using HTML, PHP, and Joomla. I am now retired, but acting as amateur webmaster for LASFS, ConChord, and Xenofilkia (my wife's fanzine).
Lee and I have also created a key to The Rainbow Affair by David McDaniel.
A member of LASFS, The Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society.
I am currently webmaster of their site.
An amateur cook and pastry chef
I make a pecan pie to die for. My pumpkin bread, sponge cake, and chicken soup with matzo balls are also well thought of.
A filksinger and guitar player.
I am frequently asked to perform a concert set (20-30 minutes) at Science Fiction and Filk-related conventions. Lee and I have been inducted into the Filk Hall of Fame.
Lee Gold's Husband
A Rolegamer. My characters include:
a Hengeyokai (shapechanger) cat in a game set in 13th century Japan. (Not currently active in Japan, but appearing in alt.callahans).
Sword Finn, a 17-year-old Viking.
He's full-grown, but only as mature as a 14-year-old. He's half-Sidhe, the result of his parents visit to Ireland. The name comes because he was born with a sword. The Vikings campaign is set in the 10th century.
Telly, the NBC Peacock.
a Toon character, of course. His natural enemies are black and white, and he has the power to change the colors of just about anything.

My wife, Lee Gold, writes some very good filksongs, many of which have appeared in Xenofilkia and Filkerup. She also edits Alarums and Excursions, a roleplaying APA, and runs the rather peculiar rolegaming campaigns mentioned above.
