Autumn Adventures

My retreat from the post-Amazon-apocalypse-GoodReads. My shelves and my reviews, I hope, will find a safe haven here.


I like to read epic fantasy (the bigger, thicker and longer, the better) and science fiction (perfer space operas).  I also enjoy the occasional biography or history non-fiction.


Out in the real world, I'm an IT professional in the Legal industry.  Tech doesn't scare me or phase me.

Tea with the Black Dragon - R.A. MacAvoy 3.6 starsI curled up with this book during the weirdest weather weekend I've witnessed for August as a native Kansan. A north wind for three days (starting on Friday), highs in the low 70s and partly to mostly cloudy. It felt and smelled like October! And this book was perfect for that setting. An incognito dragon seeking the meaning of life or ultimate truth finding it and love in a small childlike bewildering woman with crystal blue eyes. I got a kick out of the early 80s retro computer terminology, especially the references to CP/M and 8080 processors. I cut my teeth on that technology while in high school and it holds a fond place in my geeky heart. The mystery and kidnapping were fun, but just a distraction to the main theme I mentioned above. A short novel treasure to cherish once and perennially.
