About meAn Office Manager with a love of books. I read quite a bit and am always picking up new stories and novels, even though my "must read" stack continues to grow larger and larger. I'm a fan of world literature (Japanese, Spanish), horror/ghost stories, LGBT literature and sometimes the hardcore stuff that we were supposed to read in college. Some of my stories have recently appeared in: "First Time Dead 2", "Fear, Volume 1", "Before Plan 9: Plans 1-8 from Outer Space", "Queer Fish Volume 2", and "Monster Gallery".

About my libraryI tend to read quite a bit of world as well as LGBT literature so my shelves are filled with the likes of John Rechy, Yukio Mishima, Phil Rickman, and J. M. Coetzee, to name just a few. I'm also a fan of horror novels -- specifically ghost stories -- so I own volumes of Algernon Blackwood, Ambrose Bierce, Stephen King, Shirley Jackson and many others. I also like the hardcore lit.: Dante's "The Divine Comedy," Bocaccio's "The Decameron," and so on.

Hello. I have read about 80% of the library's collectionso I rarely have time to read much else besides glbt titles. It started as my personal collection of about 1600 titles. In addition to the librarything listings our collection includes another 800 titles of erotica. Stay in touch. Mike
Your Frankenstein review was great and I loved the ending of the various views that could be what the book, Frankenstein, is really all about. I never really got to the ending of that book though, but I am urging myself to do so. Again, great review!
I just reread The Heart is a Lonely Hunter after 50 years and was moved, impressed, and see much still has not changed today. It is really a tale of poverty for all races, grinding poverty. Maybe it is because my daughter just lost her job and we see unemployment now all around us.

I have been checking out the LT reviews and find such different takes onf the book....except for yours. A really good review.
