About

About Me:

I am twenty-something-year-old going by the pen name Riley. I work in publishing at a largish academic publisher. It’s been a wonderful transition out of college academia, but ultimately I want to go into speculative fiction and trade publishing. I live with several humans and a cat in the wilds of Brooklyn. In my spare time (which I have entirely too much of), I make elven cloaks and FMA jackets.

About this Blog:

For me this blog is the chance to share my passion for speculative fiction. For you this blog is the chance to laugh at someone crazier than you and possibly get a few good reading suggestions in the bargain. My goal is to write a review of everything I read that can (loosely) be described as speculative fiction. I’ll try to connect similar authors and novels to try to create recommendations based on people and stories you already know and love. Though my forté is in fantasy, I’m trying to expand my horizons and will try to include a variety of genres.

About Speculative Fiction:

Speculative Fiction (or Spec Fic) is a term used to encompass a wide variety of genres, including science-fiction, fantasy, horror, mystery, and a variety of other “imaginative” genres.
