What's your favourite animal?

A year ago I would have said cats. But they aren’t too friendly. 

I love small dogs—the ones that don’t slobber all over you. They are so cute and so affectionate. dogs are just like any other animal, with the exception of their saliva being unclean, but cats are even dirtier, IMO. 
 

What’s your favorite book and what did you like about it? The prose, dialogue, or the characters?

You never met my cat, easily the most friendly and affectionate animal I have ever met.

Probably East of Eden, epic prose, full of pathos, imagery and allusions to the story of Habil and Qabil.

Just started reading “The Revolution of Marina M” by Janet Fitch. It’s historical fiction. Do you have Goodreads

No but I am familiar and aware of Goodreads. I did breeze through a couple of short stories involving Venus recently, In the Walls of Eryx by H.P. Lovecraft, plus The Long Rain and All Summer in a Day, both by Ray Bradbury. I kind of imagined all three becoming some of a horror movie script for a lost Venusian colony.

Do you read short stories or science fiction?

I should check them out. I have a collection of short stories by Ray Bradbury called “Shadow Show”. 
 

I read short stories. Not so much science fiction. I love Daniel Woodrell’s short stories, “The Outlaw Album”—read it recently. It was pretty good. 

Have you read White Oleander?

I don't think so, no. What's the book about?

Also, what is your favorite genre of literature?

It’s about a girl named Astrid and what happens to her in foster care while her mom is in prison. It was made into a film adaption a while ago. The writing is so poetic, moving, and beautiful.

My favorite genre is Literary fiction (if you could call it a genre). I read mostly for the writing and not so much the plot or characters. What’s your favorite genre?

Seems interesting, if a bit flowery.

It took me a while to answer this question, and even then I'm still not certain but I am fond of both historical fiction and non-fiction, alternative/alternate historical fiction and getting a taste for cosmic horror.
