About meIm a historian who lives way down in exotic Alabama. Ive also been a small-time journalist and computer tech, and have spent some weeks in London, Vienna, and Basel. My wife teaches English literature and our home libraries have merged.

About my libraryYoull find a lot of history, dozens of books in German, quite a few on Islam, and a whole bunch about southeastern American Indians. Most of the fiction is my wifes, along with a fine Quaker history collection.

I collect some authors whom I think of as fools or liars. Thats why youll find several musty old paperbacks, tagged Red Menace, that warned our grandparents of an inevitable deth struggle with Godless Communism. Similar books, associated with the latest apocalyptic ecstasy, are tagged scary Muslims. I'm intrigued by conspiracy theories and people's willingness to embrace them.

I’ve contributed dozens of book reviews. Here are the ones other LibraryThingers like the most (listed by author):
