Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.

and their subjects:
Young, nubile women attract attention, aging women do not — on the street, on the screen, on the stage and, I fear for the novelist, on the page.
