The old design is no longer fully supported nor does it get full attention when we roll out new features. We strongly recommend using the new design.
About meUndisciplined collector of books and inveterate reader. Reading interests range widely, currently leans towards ancient history, archaeology, mythology, earth & space sciences, personal essays, science fiction & urban/dark fantasy. However, fiction is in the ascendant over the last year or so.
