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.

Brummstein - Peter Adolphsen; Charlotte Barslund (translator) "All around them, chemistry carried out its destructive business...."A strange but engaging novella presented more or less in the language of a monograph on a scientific peculiarity, though the putative author knows more than he would have for complete verisimilitude. A useful structural comparator is Brooks's People of the Book, though here the point seems to be that human concerns and history are ephemeral and trivial, perhaps the opposite of Brooks's theme.
