Karen Mead (1982-) was born on Long Island, New York and still lives there because she's too lazy to move. As a journalist/editor, Karen lives the double life of writer by day...writer by night. Okay, so maybe it's not much of a double life. When not writing for work or for fun, Karen also enjoys reading, drawing, playing games, playing with her My Little Ponies (which she liked BEFORE it was cool) and watching anime.

Random Acts of Sorcery, Book 3 of The Familiar Series, is coming along nicely, I think. It's coming out different than I anticipated, but I think that's good; it means the characters are doing their own thing instead of letting me check the obvious "hrrrm, this should probably happen in the next book," boxes.

TPWBM came out in June 2012 and SOW came out in July of 2013, so I'd like to have this... Read more of this blog post »

I'm used to the way Murakami's novels refuse to spell everything out for you, but I still felt like a lot was missing from this novel. It felt like the book ran out of paper as opposed to coming to a proper ending.

That said, it's Murakami, and I alwa

Tanizaki has a gift for making the seemingly mundane sparkle. An absolute pleasure to read; my only complaint is that it's so short. I understand the virtue of ending a story before it wears out its welcome, but in this case, I would have been happy ...more

This is a deeply unpleasant book. That probably sounds like a slam, but in a strange way, the unpleasantness is welcome; so many portrayals of the Old West are romanticized that seeing it portrayed the way Epstein does here-- as primitive, dirty, and ...more
