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.

The Clue of the Linoleum Lederhosen - M.T. Anderson, Marc Cashman Okay, but not as good as Anderson's previous in the series, [book: Whales on Stilts!], which struck a better balance between parody and earnest absurdity. [book: The Clue of the Linoleum Lederhosen] has its own good jokes and affectionate jabs at genre fiction aimed at children, but doesn't pull it off as well. The authorial narrator is more talkative here, which is one of the up sides of this volume.
