My name is Shawn D. Standfast. On A Blog Less Traveled you will find poetry, songs, reviews, jottings and miscellaneous things I find of interest to write about. All material on this site is copyrighted by myself unless otherwise noted.
I was born and grew up on an island in Northern Canada in a log built house without electricity, running water, indoor plumbing or central heating – using wood stoves for cooking and heating. My education and work background includes archaeology and bookselling. I have keen interest in archaeology, history, books, literature, Science Fiction, music, Old Time Radio, Silent Film, Louise Brooks, and Classic Film. I began working in bookshops during the early 1980s when I moved to more metropolitan surroundings. From 1994-2004 I had my own bookshop specializing in archaeology, history and scholarly non-fiction. Archaeological sites I have excavated on include sites in the provinces of Ontario and Quebec, Canada as well as in Jordan. Currently I reside in the United Kingdom writing poetry.
Favourite Poets include: John Clare, Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Frost and Wilfred Owen.
Favourite authors include: George Orwell, P. G. Wodehouse, Clifford D. Simak and Honoré de Balzac.
