Reading History

When I started reading it was at a young age.  My mother was a horror fan and the only thing available to me were the classics of the horror giants like King, Saul, and Koontz. I had a few ratty old Nancy Drew and the Hardy boys that were buries deep in the basement but for the most part I read my mother’s cast offs. When we started reading in school was young adult garbage that I had long ago passed on.

I cut my teeth on classic horror and found Science fiction later.  Robert Heinlein was stand out at the time. Later I found the joy of Sherlock Homes and the love of Edgar Allen Poe.

I have no intention of reading Harry Potter though I appreciate it at an intellectual level. She tricked either graders who have video games to read six hundred page novels and she pisses off Christians so that tickles me a bit.

I can’t do fantasy unless it’s something special. The same goes for zombies and steampunk, as well as urban fantasy.  I will take a look if someone mentions them or their is something special.

I used to read more. I spent so much time on site and on planes that I would bring extra books on the plane as back up.  I forgot storm of swords on an airplane and had to by another copy in the airport. (Yeah kindle.)

I read less but it’s still good.

I read super hero fiction like Butcher’s Dresden files, and confessions of a d list supervillain. I can not stand Sanderson’s reckoners, and Larry Correia’s Hard Magic is just wizards.

I have tons of horror, mystery and shit in my list for reading.
