Who are your favorite authors? What are your favorite books?

Tolkien, Herbert, Adams, Butcher, *shameless plug* my folks. I mostly like SciFi and Fantasy.

The Desert Island Questions: Which 3 books would you take if you were deserted on an island? Which 3 creature comforts would you want if you were deserted on an island? Upon which island are you deserted - and how did you find yourself to be there?

Dune, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, that edition of LotR that had all three books compiled as one. Something to easily start a fire, a knife, a really good pair of boots. I'd say somewhere in the Caribbean, but the South Pacific is far more likely to be truly deserted at this point -- Plane crash, Lost style.

What are your favorite adaptations from books you've seen and also read or intend to read? What is the worst? What are your favorite adaptation from the works of Shakespeare?

I remember liking the SciFi mini-series for Dune, if only because it can contrast with how I didn't like Lynch's Dune movie. KEANU REEVES AS DON JOHN.

What literary characters would you most like to meet... and what would you do with them? Which deceased author would you most like to meet and why?

Well, the problem with meeting most fictional characters is that chances are you'd be involved as an innocent bystander in whatever current plot is going on. Still, I'd have to think Harry Dresden would be fun to hang out with for an afternoon for a) magic/wizard stuff and b) he'd be down for playing RPGs or board games. I have to imagine that a bit of tea at a cafe with Douglas Adams would be pleasant and funny.

As an Amused Reader of N4B, do you promise to behave with kindness and respect towards all members of N4B both in and out of the events of N4B and to honor the spirit of N4B - the good fellowship of a community of readers?

Introduction

I'm a little into everything, but I mostly read SF/F.
