My 310th Chronicle Piece

In looking for the Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. interview I posted that week, I explored The Chronicle's database of published articles and discovered that, since March 29, 1987, I've contributed 310 articles, most of them book reviews. Yow.

So, I've been doing this for a little over 20 years now. In the early days, many of those reviews were for single books. Given the paucity of space, I now rarely do any stand-alones, instead covering three or four books at a time. Estimating conservatively, I've probably read 600-700 books for The Chronicle.

My latest review covers new books by Guy Gavriel Kaye, Jon Armstrong and Mike Carey and John Bolton.

Let's see if I've got another 310 reviews in me.
