Welcome to 2018, the Year of Life, Dancing!

I’ve not posted in a while because there were a lot of things going on, not the least of which is I’m making the transition from senior scientist to full-time writer and it’s taken me a while to get my feet back in the sidesaddle of the writing business again. By necessity and choice, I […]

The Truth Is Out There

This is one of my longer articles. I’m trying to do a few of them to break up the photo montages of archeoseismology travelogues and cute kitty and garden pictures. 🙂 According to Wikipedia, the title of this article is a tagline (The X-Files) or an episode title (from the series Charmed and NCIS). The […]

My 100 Favorite Novels, the May 2017 version

Greetings from sunny Sicily, to be more precise, Selinunte, where battles were fought and lost and earthquakes ravaged buildings. Maybe. Thanks to Nathan Bransford for the challenge to create a top 100 novel list. He said it was hard. He was right. I have no doubt I’ve forgotten many that should be on this list […]

The Looooooong Break

I’m back! Sorry about the break, but I needed time to write, to read, to travel and time to think. I know that’s no excuse. I could have just popped in here and written something – what I’m writing, reading, thinking, etc. But it was my alone time. Everyone needs that. I am convinced I […]

Ring in the New!

Wishing everyone lots of new books to read and health and happiness for 2017! On a less than happy note: The sharonreamer.com website is down for a couple of days back up (currently – still haven’t identified the problem) after encountering a problem with the server update. I apologize for the inconvenience, even though it’s […]

My Ten Favorite Books of 2016

I have read over 100 books this year — currently at 109 — (my Goodreads goal was 100 and I finished that just after Thanksgiving – woohoo!). Only a few of those books were published in 2016. The rest were older and many of them were ebooks I checked out of my ‘local’ (U.S. library). […]

It is a reworking of one of the Breton tales collected and retold by Anatole Le Braz and contained in the collection Celtic Legends of the Beyond: A Celtic Book of the Dead; this version has […]

Back from Eurocon!

Returning from a pleasant 19 degrees C in Barcelona to, oh, about 3 degrees in Cologne, I am finally adjusting. I brought a mild head cold back, lots of memories, and some books (see below). Thanks to everyone who came to my panels and to my co-panelists – who were awesome and fun to listen […]
