About me"Life is simple...read books, drink coffee, feed the cat."
About my libraryClassic comic books, Landmark YA histories & the old ACE fantasy/scifi volumes got me started...now it's mostly military history with strong sections of related historical fiction or military science fiction/fantasy along with some hard-boiled detectives and Scandinavian police procedurals. Of course, I've got the obligatory DUNE & Patrick O'Brians. Along with the Peninsular War, the Southern Campaigns of the American Revolution, the American Civil War, & WWII; I do have some particular collection interests: Robert Frederick's First Special Service Force, Merrill's Marauders, German surface raiders of WWI & WWII (Wolf & Atlantis etc), military staff officers (Berthier, Sorrel, B.Smith, Thiebault), the Civil War in the Southwest (Glorieta!) and the Late Roman period (Aetius, Alaric, Stilicho).
