About J. C. Hardy

I'm an avid reader of everything these days. While horror still holds a special place in my heart (and bookshelves), I find that with the advent of Kindle my interests have broadened significantly.<br />I have been reading everything I can get my hands on from SciFi/Fantasy, to Classics and Tacitus and Cicero. I have found so many things that I've only heard about and never had the opportunity to read that I am a bit like a kid in a candy store.<br />The phrase, So many books, so little time was never so true as it is now. I am still dreaming of my house with a library, with the addition of a cozy fireplace and super comfortable chairs ;)

    Note: Omg...this has got to be one of the most hilarious chapters I have ever read!

    Of two kinds of temporary insanity, one ends in suicide, the other in marriage.
    Note: Bierce :) Such a cynic! have to love him though.

    Death is a dignitary who when he comes announced is to be received with formal manifestations of respect, even by those most familiar with him.
    Note: Ambrose Bierce, what a mind he had.

    Smoke lowering down from chimney-pots, making a soft black drizzle, with flakes of soot in it as big as full-grown snowflakesgone into mourning, one might imagine, for the death of the sun.
