I keep two posters taped to the walls of my notoriously spartan dorm room. They’re both Don Quixote (By Gustav Doré and Pablo Picasso, respectively), and as I’ll tell anyone who looks at me weird, they’re a reminder to me of a man who literally went insane from reading too many books. Although, Charlie tells me he was probably crazy to begin with.
I haven’t been jousting with any windmills (yet), but I do plan to test the limits of literary insanity this semester with a full schedule of history courses and a full calendar of indie SF book reviewing. And since there’s no better way to keep honest and on task than sending out a public promise on the Web, here’s my book review calendar from spring 2011.* And in the meantime, go ahead and check some of these out on Amazon or Smashwords now, and spare yourself the pain of visiting my second-tier blog again.
Namaste, and good luck,
