About meI’m completely obsessed with books on archaeology, anthropology, Egyptology, extraterrestrials, paranormal, occult, theology, military history, witchcraft, cryptozoology, magick, folklore, mythology, secret societies and so on. I've been studying it all since I was a young child. I saw Ghostbusters and Indian Jones and the Temple of Doom when I was 4 and those two movies changed my life. I’ve been reading and writing about the paranormal and the occult ever since.

I’m constantly hunting for new books to add to my library. I’m a crazy person about it. I’m a 34 year old dad of three kids and the rule around my house is that if there is a fire you don’t worry about clothes and toys. You grab as many books as you can and run to the end of the driveway, place them neatly on the ground, and then run back in to get more until we have saved them all. I’m mostly kidding but you know what I mean.

I hope one day to open an occult book store in Sedona, Arizona. Other than books I love to collect "oddities" and I'm also into Steampunk. Tucson, the city I live in, isn't very big but does have some amazing book stores and antique stores. If you ever visit I would suggest stopping by one or more of the three Bookmans used books stores and the 22nd Street Antique Mall. You'll find many treasures at both.

About my libraryIt grows every week. I'm like a hoarder when it comes to my books. I haven't even had a chance to read all of them cover to cover but I'll finish all of them some day. I do own all of the books that I've listed. I spend at least an hour a day on this site. I'm constantly updating and editing my collection. I enjoy scanning the covers of my book when there's not a high quality one available. I also like to add descriptions and update as much info about each book as possible.
