Tenacious Reader was started in September of 2013 and is run by Lisa Taylor.
What can I say? I read. Mainly fantasy (or speculative fiction if I want to sound more sophisticated). Sometimes I talk about what I read and you’ll find some of that here. I also seem to be a bit of an online book club addict at the moment. I organize and participate in both the Fantasy and Science Fiction book clubs every month over on the Fantasy Faction forum. You’ll find me talking books there fairly often.
I enjoy mostly fantasy and grew up reading horror, so have a soft spot for that as well. I like books that have a dark side and am not a fan of happy fairy tales. Make of that what you will, but it’s what I enjoy. I still feel relatively new to the fantasy genre as I have been reading it only since 2010. That leaves many books for me to catch up with and means most of the fantasy that I have read (and enjoy) is newer works. My article, The Horror in Modern Fantasy, explains how I feel my love of horror is what brought me into the fold of fantasy.
Also, anything you find here is obviously just my opinion. If you agree or disagree, comments are welcome!
