JUSTIN BLAZIER (on FanLit's staff since September 2009) is a Cyber-Security Analyst/Network Engineer located in Northern Kentucky. Like many fantasy enthusiasts, Justin cut his teeth on authors like Tolkien, Anthony, and Lewis. Due to lack of space, his small public library would often give him their donated SFF books. When he is not reading books he is likely playing board games or Tabletop RPGs. Justin lives in a quiet neighborhood with his wife, their daughter, and Norman the dog.

  1. Amazon’s 47North looks cool, especially that book called The Monogoliad. I might have to get that one. :)

  2. I loved Phantom Tollbooth as a child, and still re-read it occasionally. Thanks for the link.

  3. Wow, that’s weird. Norton Juster describes having synesthesia, and his two examples are things that show up in the writing of John Crowley. They mention Nabokov. I wonder how many awesome writers have that unusual sensory condition?

  4. The best of books site is awesome – thanks. :)
