What's all this, then?

Welcome to That Inscrutable Thing, the blog for one aspiring novelist with a wife, two kids, and a day job.

Questions about me or the blog? Check out the links under About This Blog.

Interested in what I've written? Check out the Things Written sections. For my latest novel, Columbia: Reflections in Broken Glass, a full synopsis is included there. Spoiler alert! I do mean a full synopsis, since I am hoping to sell it to a publisher. Also, on October 1, 2009, I started posting my eleven short stories and six other novels in these sections. I started with my earliest story and will be going forward in chronological order, adding one story or novel chapter on the first of each subsequent month until they're all there.

Interested in what I'm reading? Not sure why you would be, but I certainly am. Check out the links under the Things Read sections, or search the blog for a specific author or title, for some short and some long dissertations on the strengths and weaknesses of what's already on my bookshelf.

Things Quoted brings together some collected thoughts, mostly from the books I read before I started blogging about what I was reading. I'm not sure where they fit in this puzzle called my life, but they undoubtedly fit somewhere.

Confused? You're not alone. If you think I can help, post a comment somewhere, or email me at eric.lanke@gmail.com. If you're not rude, I just might respond.
