About Me

Books are my vice, and speculative fiction my preferred medium for indulging that vice.

J.R.R. Tolkien wrote:

“I have claimed that escape is one of the main functions of fairy-stories, and since I do not disapprove of them, it is plain that I do not accept the tone of scorn or pity with which ‘Escape’ is now so often used.  Why should a man be scorned if, finding himself in prison, he tries to get out and go home? Or if he cannot do so, he thinks and talks about other topics than jailers and prison-walls?”

(On Fairy Stories – 1939)

There is no prison I need to escape from, but I still enjoy losing myself in some imaginary world and let the mind wander.

This blog wants to be the chronicle of those journeys, although the articles will not be limited to reviews of Science Fiction and Fantasy books only, since now and then I will branch out into other genres – like horror, crime or thrillers – and also talk about tv series or movies that I have enjoyed.

Read on and have fun! 🙂

  1. Hey, I’ve just nominated you for the Neat Blog Award – to be honest, please don’t feel any pressure to take part, I know these are really time consuming and also I’ve already dropped one of these on you previously! Honestly, I’m not singling you out for this special sort of attention!!! Would of course love to know your answers but that’s because I’m nosey.
    Lynn 😀
