About meResearch scientist (molecular genetics) and University academic. Passionate about my music collection (but don't play an instrument), passionate about my book collections (but have never written a book), and passionate about my cycling (but I do race my bike).

About my libraryBeen collecting books since I was a child, and have too little space now. Unlikely to ever catalogue them all here, let alone rate them! Nowadays I mostly read non-fiction, though I have long-abiding liking for pulp fiction...
