Shane Giroux


I'm a reading junkie who also loves sports and technology. I've authored a successful blog focused on the Colorado Avalanche and have self-published a book of poetry. I've recently expanded on that body of work with my first short story - Buried in Love - and hope to keep things rolling!

Current favorite genre - Science Fiction
Current favorite opening line - "All this happened, more or less." (Slaughterhouse Five)
Current favorite character - Atomic Robo
Current favorite author - Grant Morrison
Story that changed my life the most - The Invisibles
Last country visited - Australia

The only constant in this world is change, so these will likely be different a year from now - particularly the last country visited. I can't wait for teleportation to make travel easier so I can stop taking off my darned shoes at the airport.
