About meBrobdingnagian; fan of fiction that can be considered Weird, New Weird, or just regular weird; kind of likes quibbling about the difference between the three.

About my libraryIf my reviews skew towards the highly positive, it's because I'm mostly reviewing books I own, and I don't often purchase books I don't find value in. Paolo Bacigalupi's was a notable mistake, and is merely used as a coaster.

I enjoy reviews that do more than simply outline the plot (which will invariably be posted on dozens of other websites) and state whether the book made the reviewer feel good or bad (which is irrelevant,) so I try to write mine along similar lines.
I've just gotten back in to this account after a period of neglect, so I'll hopefully flesh out some old, thinner reviews.
