About meI'm a writer and small publisher in Colorado.

My reading is all over the table, from dense literary things that I struggle through to keep my brain from completing its metamorphosis into oatmeal, to scientific books, to essays, all the way to fluffy mysteries, science fiction and humor.

As a writer, I'm best known for writing funny books on dull subjects, like electronics, algebra and calculus. But I also write fiction, poetry and music. My music has been recorded and played on the radio, my poetry and fiction have been published but, even being generous, one must describe me as an "obscure writer."

About my libraryI've just started listing books here, so this list is not yet representative. There is no way I'm going to add all the physical books I own. This is just to help keep track of books I've actually read and remember. And, to be fair, if I hated a book or didn't finish it, it doesn't seem reasonable for me to include it.Someone else probably liked it and therefore I'm just the wrong reader. I've had enough people say things like, "Amdahl's books were too elementary for me" and then give me two stars on Amazon. Geez, if it was too easy for you, or my style didn't fit your taste, why did you bother saying anything? Don't you realize there are many difficult and boring books for you to choose among without picking on me? On the other hand, I've read some books that are so obscure there is no way to enter them into this system and wish I would run into someone who also had read them. I will cautiously dip my toe into the librarything waters and hope it does not get bitten off. Likewise, I will leave your toes alone. Thank you.
