I am Michael Monaco, @bookshelfstud on Twitter and Reddit, moderator of the /r/asoiaf subreddit, host on Maester Monthly, shitposter, etc. In my real, offline life, I work in housing. I’ve been playing tabletop roleplaying games since high school; before high school, I just sat on the floor in the library reading the 3.5e Monster Manual over and over. I also write poetry and nonfiction. My other blog, where you can find all sorts of things that are not this project, is I am too cheap for hosting. I am a Taurus.
