About this author

I'm an editor who writes, and also an editor who reads. In giving stars to each book I've posted about, I'm not comparing them to each other or even to other, similar books; I'm comparing them to some idealized version of what I think they could have been. As you can see, I think most of the books I've read in the past couple years are pretty darn good.
