About meThomas Fortenberry is an American author, editor, reviewer, and publisher. Owner of Mind Fire Press and the international literary arts journal Mindfire, he has judged many literary contests, including The Georgia Author of the Year Awards and The Robert Penn Warren Prize for Fiction. Among other awards, such as twice winning Best Novella of the Year, he has also been nominated for the Pushcart Prize. He has edited many publications, including most recently The Istanbul Literature Review. His works (in almost all genres) have appeared internationally in English and translations.

About my libraryI am a bibliophile, well, probably bibliomane. I absolutely love to read and read as widely as possible in all genres and areas. Literature is the backbone of civilization and reading needs to be taught from the earliest possible ages. I am also a firm believer in the validity of genre fiction as literature, worthy of study and respect. I collect books insatiably, much to my wife's woe. I also review books for a living and thus receive hundreds of review copies each year from publishers around the world. My collection is massive and there is no way to ever list it (unless I had a warehouse to unbox and categorize them all), but I thought I would give this Library Thing a go and list a few random texts just to see how it works.
