JONATHAN L. SWITZER has written an awful lot about the 1985 animated series ROBOTECH, its sequels and spin-offs. Some of this writing has appeared in THE ART OF ROBOTECH: THE SHADOW CHRONICLES (Stone Bridge Press); other examples appear in the Appendices to the most recent editions of the ROBOTECH MASTERS and NEW GENERATION novels (Del Rey). He draws girls and cartoon dogs at WWW.SCWONKEY.COM, and spends his days selling electronical goods at RadioShack and sleeping a lot less than he used to.
