I’m proud to a new feature, CCLaP Fridays. I recently became involved as a writer for the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography. Every other Friday I will post on their website, alternating between general book reviews and themed reviews.
The general reviews will focus on fiction and non-fiction books published in the last 24 months. My themed reviews focus on the question, “What does it mean to be human?” I will be looking at attempts to answer that question through books, TV shows, movies, and role-playing games. Everything from Warhammer 40K’s Space Marines, Iain Banks’s Culture, Samuel Beckett’s Trilogy, and a Jim Thompson hard-boiled novel will be analyzed. (This will dovetail nicely into my more in-depth analyses of Warhammer 40K and Battlestar Galactica/Caprica on Coffee is for Closers.)
It will be a unique privilege to write for CCLaP, since I’ve been an avid reader of their reviews and essays for years.
As always, I will post notifications on this blog to let you know when my reviews and essays appear.
