Mostly, this blog is my reviews of books which I have read, as I read them. ’Speculative fiction’ covers it overall, though I also enjoy some mystery now and again. And a little percentage will be non-fiction or ‘good-for-you’ fiction.
Instead of a soap-box, I’ll stand on a stack of library hardcovers to harangue those of you within earshot. Unlike the really cool book blogs, I am not reading advance copies of new books – these are books of any vintage grabbed from the library or from my own collection.
THere’s very little self-editing or proofing but plenty of editorializing.
I started posting my ‘books-read’ notes here sporadically in April 2010 – these posted comments evolved into something resembling reviews by early 2011. I doubt I will ever back-track to post reviews, notes, or even a list of the books I’ve read pre-blog. Listing the books I own would take too long, too.
Oh, and yes, this blog will contain some non-book-review posts. I’ll even post one or two non-book-related thoughts; but really, those are quite rare. The posts are rare, I mean: I frequently think about topics other than books.
