About me41, married male sci-fi/fantasy reader who also enjoys history (fiction and non-fiction) and the classics. I generally value sheer entertainment over other qualities, but I've a rapidly growing appreciation for good technique.
About my libraryI've read and own considerably more than what's listed here but I'm only adding as I read, while deleting anything that proves forgettable. I average one or two books a month. For that reason I'm very careful about what I choose, which is probably (and happily) why I give so many positive reviews. Discounting the occasional impulsiveness, I pretty much know what I'll be reading several months in advance.
