About meFreed by atomic testing from the encumbrance of a fleshy corpus, the Atomicmutant floats freely in the Plasmystical aether, reading and collecting books over all sorts of domains of inquiry. Currently on an Evolution of Consciousness kick, but could suddenly and inexplicably veer off into Elvis or the History of Popcorn at any time. I recently joined a book club and have been allowing it to open my reading to books I never would have picked up before. Thanks for visiting, feel free to leave a note!

About my libraryOtherwise known as "my piles of books", my library is pretty representative of the range of interests that I've cultivated over the years. I'm a sucker for an esoteric topic, engagingly and wittily presented, and am just as likely to nod off as anyone else on a dry topic. So I search out good writing to make history, science, and religion come alive. The horror, and movie books that I have are from way back, I'm more likely at any given time to be reading non-fiction these days. Check out my tags under "read '06", "read '07", "read '08", "read '09", "read '10", and "read '11", etc. to see what I've been chewing on lately.

Please do NOT dis "The Formal Female". It is my new favorite album, and I haven't even hear it yet. Judging from the description, it is pure genius.
Oh, BTW, I *love* your profile pic.
