Other than classics, I’ve read mostly fantasy (my top picks still being LOTR, Patricia McKillip, and Terry Pratchett), although I’ve read many of the pivotal science fiction works such as Foundation, Hitchhiker’s Guide, Dune, and Stranger in a Strange Land.
I like history enough that I’ll read it straight, especially biographies, and I enjoy historical fiction, although I like historical fantasy even better. I tend to shy away from too much explicit sex, and I don’t read erotica at all. I’m not a good choice to review a book that is actively hostile to any major religion or treats women as objects a la Bond. I won’t read anything that whitewashes rape or abuse.
The good news is that I won’t post a negative review, so you have nothing to lose by asking me. I just won’t finish the book. Life is too short to read books I don’t like.
Currently, I’m not taking requests for reviews unless we’ve already connected over blogging or Absolute Write.
