Three Biggest Traveller Influences[edit]

The three biggest influences on my Traveller works are as follows:

  1. Marc Miller
  2. Loren Wiseman
  3. Don McKinney

I base my Traveller community interactions on the standards and examples that they pioneered. Any of my personal shortcomings are my own and not theirs. I have been blessed to have known all three of them, communicated with them, although not as well as I might have liked.
