About meAs a Professor of Literature, my love for books can certainly be expected. However, my love for stories far exceeds the bounds of the literary classics. I am eclectic. I love to skim the surface of all genres of books, music, movies, and games. I lean closer to loving a bunch of every genre, rather than delving deep into one or two. However, if I had to choose, I would definitely have to say that my favorite genres are fantasy and science fiction.

"Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten."
~ N. Gaiman & G.K. Chesterton

About my libraryI have been slowly - very slowly - adding my collection of books into my library. I started with my fiction collection, so I have yet to add basically any of my nonfiction collection. So what I've added so far barely scratches the surface.
