I'm in the middle of a catalog overhaul. Once I re-tag everything and adjust the titles, I'll add the the handful of stuff I've bought since then, and I'll be caught up for the first time since I paid my membership for this account. Amazing!

The third tag on every item indicates where I have it shelved in my apartment. Some nonfiction is tagged as fiction because it goes with something else in that case.

My Japanese comic collection is large and cataloged in a different account (simside). All my other comics are under this account, though. There's some crossover, mostly the few nonfiction volumes and a couple novels.

Noticed you liked Back Roads, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about mental illness (and a bit dark). I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter)in case you'd like to read more about the novel before you commit:


I did find you because you were the only one who'd reviewed the Highsmith short story things. :)
