Every job needs tools. Writing is no different. So in addition to the Internet this is the stack of books I rely on the most. There are other volumes but this is the what gets used the most. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is not a guide or reference book by any means but for one trying to maintain a certain tone to a weird west/dieselpunk epic it’s essential. The rest are just indispensable in my work.
Oh, and I’m about to crack the wrappers on my quarterly stock of incense. As I have noted before, it’s essential that my man cave smells like an old record store. Also, it irritates my wife. So I got that goin’ for me, which is nice.
