I like certain subgenres within science fiction and fantasy, and one of those is urban fantasy, and another is steampunk.
It seems to me that Halloween is the perfect time to get all over steampunk.
As a field archeologist, one usually has to specialize in a particular part of the world or specific culture, whereas if one is a materials specialist, one can jump around to different areas. So I've had experience on excavations all over the place.
I do hold very strongly that tea is better in England. There's something in the milk. They must have special cows.
I consider science fiction and fantasy my genre. And I've noticed over the years that there doesn't tend to be a lot of lighthearted, comedic stuff.
