Hey there, I’m Kevin.

Heradas is where I write a little about what I’ve been reading. Most of it will be Speculative Fiction or Contemporary Literature. If it’s featured here, I thought there was something exemplary about it. I don’t write about books that I don’t enjoy.

Most of my reviews will be spoiler free, and focus more on the general feel, prose, worldbuilding, and themes explored in the novels I write about. If you’re interested in a play-by-play, or recap of a novel, there are plenty of other places online to find just that. I’m much more interested in books as pieces of art and entertainment. I always aim to write about them based on whether they achieved what they were intended to, not so much based on whether they were what I wanted them to be or not.

Find me on Goodreads, Twitter, and Instagram.

Here is a list of my favorite books.

If you’re interested in some reading stats for nerds, I keep a fairly detailed document updated here.

Here’s what I’m up to now (June 2018):

  • Rereading Iain Banks’ Culture novels in preparation for a piece I’m writing
  • Running a one-man computer repair shop in Northwest Arkansas
  • Raising chickens in my backyard
  • Cycling as much as possible
