Alan C. Baird is the Harvard Book Prize winner who coauthored a print/web/wap project entitled "9TimeZones.com," which was included in the Whitney Biennial. His work appears in a dozen-odd anthologies and in many periodicals, including Playboy, PC, and Britain's Guardian and Screenwriter. His Screenwright(R) screenplay formatter won a $3,333 cash award from Sun Microsystems, and he's written screenplays that finished in the quarters, semis and finals of various international competitions. Alan enjoys referring to himself in the third person, and was inordinately pleased when ABC-TV's "Max Headroom" series purchased his debut student film, widely hailed as "the most uncommercial piece of ____ in Michigan State's history." Born down east, he now lives just a stone's throw from Phoenix... which is fine and dandy, until the stones are thrown back.
Rocks in the head: Alan likes megaliths, maybe a little too much. Whenever he goes traveling, he tries to fit in a visit to the local menhir, dolmen, henge, passage grave, stone, circle, or alignment. In Ireland, it was Ardgroom, Drombeg, Eightercua, Poulnabrone, Newgrange, Kenmare, Castlestrange, and many others. In the UK, it was Loanhead, Rollright, Avebury, and of course Stonehenge. Sometimes, he went out of his way - for example to the Orkney Islands to see Brodgar and Stenness, or visiting Callanish in the Outer Hebrides.
