My name is Matthias Thorn, and I’m an (as yet) unpublished writer working out of the Somerville/Cambridge part of Boston, MA. I have a restless cat, a taste for breakfast foods, and a checkered past, some or all of which you’re bound to hear about if you visit here regularly. Mostly, though, this is a blog where I can write about my interests in all things literary: writing, reading, readers, the state of the publishing industry, and so forth.
