I read widely and in most genres but romance and westerns. Here you'll find my reviews since 2007, with a few reviews of previously read books as well.


In 2012, I completed an "authors of the world" challenge, reading a book for every country (and a few other entities) by someone who'd lived there for at least two years. I expect to tag these books by challenge and country in the near future. I'm still refining my list by adding books that better meet my challenge criteria.

Distrust That Particular Flavor - William Gibson Essays, with afterwords, on a pretty good range of topics. There are some fun ideas, but the best reason to read this collection is Gibson’s quirky and pleasing language. After reading this I’m more likely to re-read some of his post-Sprawl novels, many of which have struck me as similar to leafing through a Williams-Sonoma catalogue while waiting for a plot to arrive.
