I am Sherwood Smith, a myopic old--no. Wait. We can be anyone we want on the Internet, right? Then I am young, brilliant, and full of grace, with enough money to keep up with my reading, my car always runs, my house is always clean, I never slop spaghetti down my front at fancy dinners, and I am not only visible at social gatherings, but ept.

Oached pish is a dyslexic fumbling that I typed instead of 'poached fish.' I don't remember why I was blathering about poached fish. Somehow this sums up the Smith Bozone. Anyway, this blog mostly talks about reading with occasional forays into this and that. I'd like differing POVs to feel safe to exchange ideas here. But personal attacks get deleted.

Writing talk about specific projects I pretty much confine to athanarel but I do have a newsletter signup.

Friending policy Come and go at will. I'm trying to trim people who haven't post in a year, or who drop me and so obviously don't want contact.

If any former f-list people return to LJ and would like me to add, I'd be happy to.
