You have arrived.
This is my public literary blog. Here I’ll be talking about culture, philosophy, and authors whose fiction has inspired me. If you’re looking for bad reviews, you may be at the wrong place. I generally like to keep quiet about books I don’t enjoy.
You can expect posts about literary theory, philosophy, worldbuilding, or writing advice on Monday. Once a month on Saturday, I’ll be diving into a specific book, story, or author and its influence on me or on the genre as a whole.

You might know me as J. Dan Goodberry, Miscellaneous Goblin, or a different name if you know me personally.
I started this blog because I had a lot of thoughts in my head (mostly about literature) that I felt I wanted to get out onto the page. As I continue to read, I hope to come here to log and summarize the books I’ve enjoyed. Hopefully, you will find this useful. I usually stick to the genres of fantasy, historical fiction, and nonfiction, with notable exceptions.
Living in the United States, I’m working on a range of writing projects, several of which you can find sampled here. I also happen to have a cartography side-hobby, about which you can find out more on my ArtStation account.
