Contrary to the impression you may have gotten, I’ve not yet abandoned this site, and I am still here in some small way. I just haven’t really had the inclination or the energy to put finger to keyboard recently and as a result these pages have stagnated slightly. The same is true of my book reviews over on GoodReads, so my apologies to all who frequent this little corner of the web.
Things have been a little strange over the last few weeks and months. The brain-assassin, that annoying part of my mind that seems determined to lead me to destruction, has been working overtime recently, and to put it bluntly the effort required to ignore her is wearing me out.
Other than posting my monthly lists of books read I’ve been absent from this blog for a short while, though I assure you it’s all in a good cause. I’ve been busy with a number of projects, some writing related, some not so much, and as a result I haven’t had all that much time spare to keep this place in good order. Ho hum.

I’m one of those people who tends to worry about anything and everything at the drop of a hat. Most of the time I can rationalise the worry and push it to the back of my mind but since last night I’ve been in a very real panic about one thing in particular, so much so that I’ve not been able to think about anything else.
You may be forgiven for thinking that this site, as with so many of my previous sites, has been forgotten and abandoned. Well, I’m pleased to tell you that it hasn’t. So why the long period of silence and nothingness, I hear you ask. Simply put, I just didn’t feel I had much of anything to say. However, as I’ve been getting comments and e-mails asking for an update, here it is…
