I kinda read all over the place... Psychology, Physics, Philosophy, DNA research, Historical (Stephen Pressfield mostly), Sci-Fi, Horror, and some Fantasy. I don't care much for Romance, Erotica, Who-Dun-It's, or Modern Military. Sci-Fi and Horror take precedence over the rest - and specifically I'll look for books similar to what I intend to write to see how other authors handled the subject.

Everything I read, I consider research.
