All the little 'extras' that don't fit as posts unto themselves.

  • About — a few notes about me, this website, etc.
  • Archive — browse posts by year.
  • Year-end 'meta' posts — wherein I recap the year. Here are the 2012, 2013, and 2014 recaps.
  • Reading Pipeline — books I'm currently reading, books I've recently finished, books I've abandoned, etc. Updated about once a month. Also includes a list of my all-time favorites.
  • Links — collection of high-quality links I think Melting Asphalt readers would enjoy.
  • Some of the series I've published on this blog.
