There are so many book bloggers on the internet that if you laid them all end to end they’d reach to Alpha Centauri and back – but how do you know whether the reviews on any one site will match your own tastes? One way might be to find out a little more about the people behind them. And so I present The Book Blogger Files – a series of interviews with the literary enthusiasts behind the keyboards. Today I’m speaking to Anya, who reviews SF and Fantasy on her blog On Starships and Dragonwings.
I’m a graduate student in Computer Science in Michigan, though I lived my life in Minnesota up until grad school. I started book blogging because I wanted to try out this crazy blogging thing and could only think of one hobby that I was unlikely to ever get tired of: reading!
Where did the name ‘On Starships and Dragonwings’ come from?
My blog was originally called ‘About The Story,’ but when I switched to self-hosted, I wanted a name that fit me better – I realized I no longer only cared about the story! My genres of choice are sci-fi and fantasy, so I wanted a name that incorporated both of them. I basically decided that I most enjoy escaping ‘on starships and dragonwings’, so that became the name!
What is it about SF/Fantasy that appeals to you over other genres?
