Writing in Progress

J. T. Glover
Writer, reader, librarian, dabbler in the visual arts. Much of my work falls under the umbrella of speculative fiction, often with a dark edge. I count authors from inside and outside genre among my literary influences.

Friend away! Say "hi" if you want, but lurkers are welcome too. For various reasons, the foremost of which is the need to guard my reading and writing time from my abiding love of the web, I don't friend back automatically.

On Content

Here there be occasional spoilers, potential "triggering language" of various kinds, and lack of LJ-cuts. Typically I don't post a warning before any of these appear, and the closest I get to it is making an entry friends-only. While I don't go out of my way to be a jerk, if any of these things rankle, this is probably not a journal you want to read.
