Gordon E. Abbo is a science fiction writer and retired psychiatrist who lives in California. Since childhood, he has been interested in astronomy and the possibility of extraterrestrial life. He is a fan of Star Trek and Star Wars and a member of the Planetary Society and Space Coast Writers’ Guild. His background in psychiatry, combined with a concern about the world’s social problems, has led him to inject a psychosocial perspective into his writing. A Meeting of Two Worlds is his first book of a planned series currently in the works.
