From the author“I’m an adopter, not a breeder. I think I have a moral obligation to care for what already exists and not spread my seed far and wide further populating and confusing an already overpopulated, excessively chaotic universe. Why add more sentences to the mix when you can recycle perfectly good ones that are readily available and often sadly neglected? It’s a way of putting one’s library to use. I’ve been collecting books for more than half my life, and they were crying out to me.”
