    Always open to something new, but my favorite genres are horror, sci-fi/fantasy with more of a leaning toward fantasy.

    "OK Story of Unintended Consequences"

    Was decent, especially for being written in 1902. Narration was OK. Worth the buck or two I paid when it was on sale and now I can say I've read it (or listened to it rather).
