About Me

I was born and raised in the Midwest and came out none the worse for wear besides a secret fondness for the smell of cow manure and a tendency to find people trustworthy despite all evidence to the contrary.  Other than that…I’m a woman in my 20s, and my degree is useless in job-getting pursuits.

I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2008, and that will show up on the blog occasionally, because it occupies a significant portion of my day, but never you worry.  Trashy pop culture occupies even more of my day.

You can contact me at cdp02005 at gmail dot com

For those of you who’ve been asking what I look like, this is one quarter of my face.  I’m rather fond of my anonymity.

    I am glad to have found your site and list , glad that I am not the only one with this weird obsession with PA fiction. I made a small change to the name of one of the authors on the list , hope you don’t mind. I hope you will continue with the list ( I gave up on my PA database after reaching 1700 + books and short stories ) I’d like to see you top that number someday.

    If you are thinking to yourself – NOWAY can there be 1700 + stories and novels – then check out this site by Professor Paul Brians.

    http://www.wsu.edu/~brians/nuclear/a.h

    He deals mainly in nuclear-war and atomic disaster fiction but he is VERY thorough and his published works on the matter are the basis of many other texts on the matter.

    I have a few other sources I would share with you if you are still actively involved with the list and I think between the two of us we might just hit the 2000+ mark one day.

      whoa, that website is pretty cool. I have had to abandon this project for the time being (just not enough hours in the day!) but it’s definitely a topic I want to return to sometime soon, and I’d love to see your list sometime

    Holy shit I love your site so much I am referencing it in a paper, hope you don’t mind, only dear old Dr. Rutledge will be reading it anyway. On a personal note, I am also a woman in my 20’s with PCOS. I have found the only “cure” to be low dose birth control, the good old fashioned pill, Ortho-tri-cyclene Lo to be exact. The difference in levels of progesterone or some none sense is the best band aid. It sucks, and I feel your pain sister. Good luck with yours.
