Picks from Kenneth
Kenneth was born in the great city of Cleveland before the river caught fire, changing shores thereafter. Chicago has been home for several decades, where he has restored three historic buildings to National Standards. Besides operating his own successful independent bookshop for a decade in a Chicago suburb and founding a still-flourishing 30-year-old community garden, he was formerly the General Manager of the bookstores at O'Hare Airport prior to joining ThriftBooks in 2016.

Lane was born in the small intestine of Texas, developing a deep fascination with science fiction, mythology, and the supernatural at an early age. While pursuing his master’s degree in writing at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago, he began his career as a used bookseller. This led to a deep and abiding love of the profession, ultimately leading to his current position as Collectibles receiver at ThriftBooks. Lane lives in Chicago, where he creates obscure comics, occasional short stories, and alternate reality gaming experiences using magical dice.
