About the Blog:
Primarily, this blog exists as my personal repository of reviews, criticisms, reflections, meanderings and the occasional emotional outbursts for all the novels, novellas stories and essays on fiction that I constantly read. Seeing that I have the ugliest handwriting that I have ever seen, and since I don’t want to use the small ounce of disk space left in the hard drive of my aging and slightly battered laptop with dozens of Microsoft Word documents, I’ve decided to keep it here, in cyberspace, where there is always space for more clutter.
