James B. Nicola b. 1958

Mr. Nicola is an October Scorpio, which may explain a lot. "I was born in Worcester, Massachusetts. No one lies about being born in Worcester, Massachusetts, though a few have lied about NOT being born in Worcester, Massachusetts," says Mr. Nicola. "More specifically, at Fairlawn Hospital. After which Fairlawn closed the maternity ward." He writes poetry to try to achieve the "ahh" or "aha" that can attend a well-delivered Shakespeare sonnet. He is neither Star Trek nor Star Wars but as a teenager was a comic book fiend.
