The Cranky Old Reader

I'm a Goodreads refugee, looking for a new home. Old books for children, science fiction, fantasy, mysteries, and humor are my main areas of interest. I've little interest in books that were written after 1975 or so, and prefer books that are older still. There are, however, a few still-living authors that I respect.

Steampunk: Manimatron

Steam Punk: Manimatron - Joe Kelly, Chris Bachalo, Richard Friend Unreadable. When you use weird lettering throughout to make your comic book look "cool", you'd better also make sure that it's "legible". A waste of time.
