About meI write a bit here and there. Most of my themes involve a character stuck in the wrong place at the wrong time, and can take the form of horror, sci-fi, mystery, or historical fiction. I have interests in good beer, science, good food (and making it), history, art, Japanese culture and literature, and architecture.

Hopefully as I finish adding books to my librarything library, they will be able to speak better for me.

I tend to read things that take me to a different place. I love reality and the world we live in, but I enjoy finding about new places and situations where "what if?" and gray matter are the orders of the day.

I guess I'd rather read about a place that may not be, that could be, or even better yet, a place that exists, but we never knew about it. Until reading [fill in the blank].

About my libraryMy tastes run the gamut from sci-fi and horror to historical fiction to young adult to solid suspense (where you know what's going on, but the characters don't). My interest in the younger titles lies in the fact that they capture the adventure, spirit and imagination that exists in all of us, but which we often lose as we get older.

But mostly I love unexpected endings, gnarly twists of fate, labyrinthian plot twists and turns, and good Dickensian turns of events. More so if these themes can be cast with fictional characters that seem real, whether in the real past or speculative future.

I'm slowly adding books that I've got in my library. I've read most of them...but working on others! So most of the titles on my list are ones I've read or will read soon.

Along those lines, I'm debating whether to tackle the 1001 list.
