A Man With An Agenda

I'm an indie bookseller in Vermont, sometime public servant, and voracious reader. I love antiques, cats, D&D, Victorian literature and pulpy nonsense.

 

I've been writing at least something about everything I read since May of 2010.

 

I'm editing my reviews to cleanse them of Goodreads taint. Reviews fixed: approx. 460/1096
