Greetings from our new staff member:  Hello all, I’m Wyatt and I’m the new guy at the Clarion Library. I’m a big fan of good science fiction and fantasy. I try to read The Lord of the Rings books at least once every couple of years. If you haven’t read The Martian yet, you’re missing out. Hopefully I’ll have more and newer reviews for the next time.
