Ty Unglebower is a freelance writer, author, actor and an introvert. Having been born, grown up and lived in Maryland for his nearly entire life, he can claim either side of the Civil War, but of course claims the Union, since it won. A long time ago.
He starts most of his mornings with Irish Breakfast and intellect. That is to say, he drinks tea and he reads non-fiction.

Defending Imagination

We live in a cynical world. By some metrics, it becomes more cynical as time goes on–about people, institutions, even science. If it doesn’t hammer a nail literally into wood, or figuratively into the crushing weight of the Protestant Work Ethic, it’s a waste of resources, time, energy and attention.

Short, but some sluggish pacing. This is a very talky novel. Tell, not show. A lot of chapters are either Lydia’s thoughts within her head, or another person describing something/body.

The Beacons I See by Ty Unglebower
"I enjoyed this book very much. It was unusual, well-crafted and well-written. I find that women write men fairly well, but it's more rare to find men who write women well, yet this author does Vanessa's voice convincingly. I was especially impressed " Read more of this review »

"1.5 Stars

The bookclub curse strikes again.

I know Foundation is one of the icons of Science Fiction and that it is on lots of people’s lists of favorites and most influential books. But you know what? I’m not going to pretend to like it just becaus" Read more of this review »

Though at this point, the book itself is no longer contemporary, some of the essays contain interesting points. Others however travel so far afield of the original topic that I lost interest and went to the next one.
