I don't blog anonymously. You can reach me at alecstein@ucla.edu if you want to talk about anything I've written. If you want to know more about me personally, just ask. I can tell you right here that I don't have a 5-year plan.

All these stories and essays change over time. Parts get added and subtracted, reworked and revised. In that way they're more like memories than art.

This blog is called "spacelove." Before that it was "alec's little blog." Someone told me that there's nothing little about it, and I'm not just some little man writing little stories on his little blog. That I deserve space. And love.

I hope we can all become spacelove.
