This is Patty Cryan's book blog, a place for her to put her book reviews and literature-related thoughts and newsposts, moved from their previous home on sylphidinebooks.
["What's a JOATAMON?", you may ask. And many of you do. It's an acronym for "Jack Of All Trades and Mistress of None", and was the name for my hypothetical rock band, back when everyone and their brother had a hypothetical band.]
[Some of my Gentle Readers actually have not-so-hypothetical rock bands. But this is a book blog.]
Patricia M. Cryan is, by turns, a retailer who never sleeps, a walking library of children's literature, a repository of memories gleaned from a lifetime of reading non-juvenile science fiction and horror, and a freelance editor who makes strong folk cry at regular intervals.
She serves as General Partner for Mike's Comics [http://www.mikescomics.com], a mail order and Internet company established in 1976, which carries comic books and graphic novels, science fiction and fantasy books and collectibles, audiobooks and full-cast audio dramas, roleplaying game supplies, fantasy greeting cards, and more. She has been active in bookselling since 1987 and is a member of The New England Children's Bookselling Advisory Council. Her most current literary project involves editorial work on THE EDGECLIFF STORYBOOK; an excerpt can be found at http://www.edgecliffabbey.com.
