About

I am a Master of Information Sciences.

And, yes! That is an actual title!

I was studying to be a librarian and an information professional. Now I work in a bookstore in a shopping mall. I like surrounding myself with books and this was as close to it as I could get at a time.

I have a strong affinity to books and stories. When I was little I loved reading compilations of short stories but now I tend to love long book series best.

Here is a link to my Shelfari bookshelf. It is basically a virtual bookshelf with books I own, read and plan to read!

I’m interested in books as a medium and their cultural value.

I live in a small town called Osijek in a small country called Croatia.

This blog is about anything and everything that interest me. I’ve been told my tastes and interests tend to be a bit eclectic. To prove that point I will point out some of the themes my blog ramblings will be about:

Author presentations & Book series presentations

Book reviews

Bookshelf porn!

Monthly reading review

Projects and happenings

Superheroes!

Thing of the moment

Wish list

  1. Hi,

    I’m producing a project that I think might make a good news story, and I’m wondering if you’d be interested in writing about it?

    We’re creating a graphic novel adapting Richard Connell’s “Most Dangerous Game” into a sci-fi graphic novel. Hunt or be hunted!

    This is a project we’ve been putting together for a while, and we have excellent artwork. We are trying to not only produce a great and entertaining graphic novel, but make one that is accessible to students who may or may not have read Connell’s original work. I will even be including a teacher’s guide inside the book with questions and activities about the story.

    So far our project has been covered in the Examiner (http://www.examiner.com/article/the-most-dangerous-game) and on DigitalJournal (http://www.digitaljournal.com/pr/2105205).

    More information about the project (including additional videos) is here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1210719219/the-most-dangerous-game

    Many thanks for your consideration!

    Sincerely,
    James Mascia

    p.s. If this isn’t something you think is appropriate for you to cover, I’d be grateful for any referrals to other reporters and/or bloggers covering sci-fi, writing, or comics. Thanks!”
