Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Anything and everything from SF to fantasy, crime thrillers, military fiction... Very few genres will I totally refuse to touch.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My computer. I'm old-school like that; I was reading stories online when tablets were still called PDAs! In any case, e-readers are too single-purpose for their price and I don't care for Apple or Google, so that eliminates most tablets or phones.

  • How a Post-Apocalyptic Vampire Librarian Saved the World on Feb. 11, 2019

    Compelling characters, witty and self-aware dialogue, a successful touch of meta-humour and a really awesome action scene at the climax. The main character's constant air of exasperated world-weariness that he hides behind a veneer of cynicism and snark is enjoyably relatable, and (minor spoilers, sorry) the fact that there's a gay romance that's treated as no big deal is nice as well.
